Trails are OPEN at this time and in fair to good condition. We have had over 2 feet of snow in spots and drifts reaching 4+ feet. Groomers have been out trying to keep trails safe, there were a lot of people stuck the first day after the storm. Trails are packing in so it should be a great weekend for riding. It will be very busy so please use caution this weekend and stay right around corners. We all know the fields and drifts look fun but please stay on the trails, this is private property and there are lots of hidden dangers under that deep snow.

Trails are OPEN at this time and improving. We have had cold nights and a decent base is starting to build with more snow falling.
