We had some light snow showers last night but only got a dusting of snow from them. I headed out for a ride hitting some St. Germain, Eagle River and Sayner trails. All these trails had been groomed. Overall, I’m giving the trails a fair rating. Most areas will be fair, some are bad and then there are some good areas. Trails were pretty smooth with some bumpy areas – mainly due to not enough snow to fill in ruts in the ground. Most trails do not have a very solid base which allows dirt to come up and sleds can wear the trail down to the ground. The carbides were scraping and majority of the trails are brownish in color from snirt. Corners get pushed out as more sleds ride on them and are thin on snow. Straight stretches are better as they hold the snow better but some still have lots of snirty areas. There are areas that are good being white with decent snow. Plowed road trails are very thin on snow. My carbides were scraping a lot on the ones I rode. Majority of lakes are marked – we advise you only ride a lake if the trail is marked. Watch for frozen ruts on the lakes – there are areas that are really nasty.

The groomers are doing what they can with the snow we do have. We really could use more snow to improve the trails.

Note: In the pictures, some trails will look whiter than they are due to the dusting of snow we received.
