Headed out for a ride hitting some St. Germain, Eagle River, Sayner and Sugar Camp trails. The Sayner and Sugar Camp trails I rode had been groomed last night while the St. Germain and Eagle River ones hadn’t. The groomed ones were smooth and packed in while the ungroomed ones were smooth overall but more corners were pushed out. I’m going with an overall rating of fair/good although you’ll see everything from poor up to excellent. After the heavy weekend traffic there are more poor and fair areas. 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. The plows continue to go out despite not receiving any measurable snow.
We had a lot of wind lately so some lakes are very bumpy from drifting.
We could definitely use some more snow to help the trails out.
