Headed out for a ride hitting some St. Germain and Sayner and trails. Did a short ride as the temperature was -19 when I left the house. None of the trails I rode had been groomed last night but they were overall smooth and packed in nice with the cold. There are a lot of corners that are all pushed out and icy. Trails seemed to hold up with the heavy weekend traffic. I’m going with an overall rating of fair/good although you’ll see everything from poor up to excellent. There is a lot of good stuff out there but you’ll see spots where the base got wore through and some bare ground is showing. Most of these are found on the insides of some corners. The carbides were scraping here and there. Some stretches were really nice, all white and really fun to ride. Others are getting brown with snirt mixed in. One area to be careful on is the corners. There are lots of icy ones out there. Even with sharp carbides it’s hard to hold the inside on some of them. Most plowed road trails are very icy with very little snow and some bare pavement in spots.
While our base is holding in most areas, it’s getting worn through in spots. We could use some snow to help build it back up.
