I headed out for a ride hitting some Sayner, Eagle River, Lake tomahawk and St. Germain trails. The Eagle River trails I rode were groomed. Sayner groomed some but not others. The St. Germain and Lake Tomahawk trails I rode hadn’t been groomed. There was a definite difference in conditions between the different clubs trails. The Sayner and Eagle River trails I rode were overall in good condition ranging from fair to excellent. They were smooth with a few small bumps. The Lake Tomahawk ones I rode were fair overall but getting bumpy. St. Germain were fair at best. They were bumpy plus majority of corners were pushed out making them icy and thin on snow. If I had to ride trails like this all day I’d park the sled.
Combine heavy traffic with not much snow for weeks and some trails are showing wear. Corners are getting thin on snow and icy. Some are down to bare ground while others are holding snow. Carbides were scraping more and trails are getting brown with more snirt. That being said, there are still areas that holding up well. I found some trails that are mostly white and great to ride.
Plowed road trails suck. Carbides scrape constantly on them.
We really could use some snow. 4-6 inches of heavy wet snow would be wonderful…
