We had a little bit of light snow yesterday but only got about a third of an inch. I headed out for a ride hitting some St. Germain, Sayner, Eagle River and Lake Tomahawk trails. All the trails I rode had been groomed. It was another weekend with heavy traffic and trails got beat up. While there are still some beautiful ones out there, most are showing wear. Even some freshly groomed trails had some areas with bumps the groomers are having a tough time knocking out. More trails are looking brownish from snirt but still some that are mostly white. My carbides were scraping more often – mainly on the insides of some corners. More corners are getting pushed out making them icy and/or thin on snow. It’s hard to give an overall rating to the trails as they vary from poor/fair up to excellent. Most will be in the fair/good range.
Plowed road trails suck. Carbides scrape constantly on them.
We really could use some snow to help build up the base and give the groomers more to work with.
