Yesterday was a warm one with highs in the mid 40s. I headed out for a ride hitting some St. Germain, Eagle River and Sayner trails. None of the trails were groomed due to the warm temps but had been groomed within the last few days. They were mostly smooth with some bumps in areas. Overall I’m giving the trails I rode a fair/good rating. Some trails were very nice and it didn’t look like temps had warmed up. I did see some fair and poor spots that were lean on snow with some bare ground. There also were some areas that melted to slush but did freeze back up. Some corners are icy so be careful. There are snirty areas so expect to see some brown trails.

Plowed road trails are the areas that are fair to poor. Some are holding an ice base while others are mostly bare pavement.

It’s getting late in the season and there is still some good riding. However, once an area has bare ground showing, any warm temps or sun will melt new snow quickly. It’s suppose to be warm today with rain changing to snow. If we get mostly rain, trails will take a hit. If it’s mostly snow, conditions will get better. This time of year trails can change quickly.
