The way this works...send in your donation with your name, address, and phone number (legibly able to be read) to CLSC, PO Box 134, Mayville, NY 14757. Must be postmarked no later than March 31st. You will be given a number in our system. The drawing will take place on Wednesday, April 16th at our regularly scheduled meeting. You do not need to be present to win.

Trails are closed at this time due to warm weather and melting snow. Trails south of Mayville have been closed for about a week due to low snow coverage. Today we are closing the rest of the trail system because of the warmer weather and sun melting off the snow. Please stay off the CLSC trails until further notice, hopefully we can get another storm before the season ends. Hope for snow!

CLSC Elections are coming up on 4/2 for ALL Officers and three (3) Board of Director Positions, along with other director positions.... We are actively seeking nominations and would welcome anyone to fill one of these important positions.... Please contact any one of the members of the BOD or officers of the Club and they will be able to answer any questions you may have, and get you to a nomination committee member.

Trails are open but very limited at this time until we receive more snow. All trails south of Mayville have been closed due to low or no snow cover, we have received phone calls by concerned land owners and have decided to close them. These trails include Sherman, Clymer, and Findley Lake. Please respect our land owners and stall off trails in these areas. Trails east of Mayville remain open at this time which include Stockton and the Cherry Creek Sno Goers trail system. Please pass the word and thank you for your cooperation in this important matter. We are hoping for more snow tonight and Sunday

Some trails are being closed due to bare wind-blown fields: If you encounter any bare grass fields TURN AROUND. Closures include: C-4 between Sherman and the junction at C-4D (CH105) toward Findley Lake; C-4 from Sherman to Mayville from the S-48 junction CH142 to the S-47 connector. In other words, take S-48 between Mayville & Sherman; S-48A (Clymer) complete closure between CH106 & CH103; C-4 French Creek to Clymer; S-52 to Panama/Busti. The snow gets better going East.

Trails are open at this time with marginal conditions in spots. We received around 6+ inches of snow this week that has been sitting on top of an ice base. Please use caution when riding, the ground is hard and corners are very slick. There may also be other hazards on the trails so please use caution and hope for more snow!

Trails are closed due to the warm weather and rain we received over the last few days. The warm weather has eaten up more snow than expected and there is plenty of standing water, so trails will be closed for the foreseeable future. We are expecting cold weather this week so that should freeze things back up. We'll maybe need some more snow to open the trails after things have frozen, so please stay off the trails until we post an update.

The 4th of July Picnic has been cancelled for this weekend and at this time we do not have a rain date in place. Please watch our website for the latest news should we reschedule. The Pink Panther Vintage ride will be held snow or no snow so please stop by the Pine Junction to support this event even if you can't ride. This is a fundraising effort for a local little tyke taking on a big battle...we will modify the 'poker run' for rain. Poker hands can be purchased outright for a chance to win the 50/50. Come enjoy Findley Lake, Pine Junction, some old sleds and memories!

Trails are closed at this time due to warm weather and rain. We have a good base in place with ice and frozen ground so we should be able to withstand a few warm days if riders stay off the trails. Weather after the weekend looks good and things should freeze up again nicely if we do not get an inordinate amount of rain in the upcoming days. We will post an update once the base has stabilized and can be ridden again; hopefully this will be sooner than later! In the meantime, please stay off the trails until further notice so we may preserve what we have and continue the riding season as long as possible.

We will update the status of the events for the weekend once we get a better idea of the weather outlook. Stay tuned for future updates and don’t forget to like our Facebook news feed page to be notified of only important CLSC postings. We also have a text service setup for instant notifications, just text "follow CLSCNY" to 40404.
