Temps dropped down to -13 last night so I headed out for a short ride hitting some Sayner and St. Germain trails. All the trails I rode were groomed. They were smooth and packed in tight with the cold temps. There were some bumps but not many. Most corners did have snow pulled back onto them from the groomers but there were some that you scrape and the inside is icy. I’m going with an overall fair rating. Conditions vary from some poor areas, lots of fair and good areas and then some very good. This will be a high traffic weeekend so as more traffic goes through, corners will get pushed out making them icy and/or thin on snow and trails will get bumps. I heard the carbides scraping in areas, especially on insides of corners and on plowed road trails. There are areas of snirt which will make the trails brownish in color. Then you will find areas that are white with good snow and really nice.
Plowed road trails have been scraped down and a lot of them are plowed to the tree line. The carbides will scrape more and it’s hard to get on the banks.
Lakes are decent overall but some slush did come up during the warm up Friday and Saturday. There are some frozen ruts in spots.
The town trails, heavily traveled corridor trails, and tight twisty trails will be more in the poor to fair range. The more you can avoid these the better riding you should find.
