Not much new to report. A little bit of good news is that Monday night we got about a half inch of snow.
I rode yesterday hitting some St. Germain and Lake Tomahawk trails. Conditions range from poor to some good stretches. Majority will be in the fair category. Most trails have an ice base with a little snow on top. It’s a mix of smooth, choppy and rutted trails. Where the ground was smooth, there’s no bumps, where it was bumpy or rutted, it’s still that way since there’s not enough snow to fill everything in yet. My carbides scraped in places but not that much. I didn’t have any overheating issues but some of our guests have. Bottom line is that most trails have a good base, but we need more snow to build that up and fill in the ruts and bumps.
Most lakes are marked. They are icy with little snow of them. Unless you know it’s safe, stay off a lake until it’s marked.
It’s great to have the base we do. Let’s hope we keep it and get some snow soon.
