Snowmobile Trail Report for Sunday, February 16, 2014

The snow started falling yesterday afternoon and we picked up around 2 inches. I headed out for a ride hitting  some St. Germain, Sugar Camp and Eagle River trails.  Sugar Camp and St. Germain groomed last night. The Eagle River trails I rode hadn’t been groomed (this surprised me being Saturday night of President’s Day weekend). The  groomed trails were smooth. The ones not groomed were showing results of heavy traffic – bumps and pushed out corners. Even though it was chilly last night, -1 this morning, trails had a softer feel to them today from the fresh snow. I’m giving the trails an overall good rating with lots of good to very good stretches. With heavy traffic there is more wear showing – especially on the insides of corners. I heard the carbides scrape on some and as more sleds push out the corners, expect it more often. Some trails are also brownish in color from snirt but others are all white. More sleds will lead to more bumps so expect rougher trails by afternoon. Try to stay away from the main corridor and town trails for the best riding today. It’s nice to see the fresh snow. Get out and enjoy the trails.

Note: In some pics the trails will look whiter than they are due to the fresh snow.
