TRAILS OPEN - CONDITIONS VERY GOOD


Trail Conditions In Chautauqua County New York

Trails are open and in very good condition with an outstanding base over most of the trail system. Groomers are working very hard to keep everything groomed and the equipment running. We have had multiple groomers break down over the busy month, but things are finally getting back to normal. Temps are forecasted to stay cool for the foreseeable future so get out and ride and stay safe!

Trails are in great condition with good base and drifting snow in places. The colder temperatures are keeping the base around but do not allow for the groomed trails to freeze how we’d like them. Below normal temps are expected through this week and we will be out grooming to smooth things where we can. Once the temps warm up a bit the groom will hold a little longer and conditions will improve in the rougher locations. Some trails around Mayville can be rated a 10 so get out and ride and enjoy!

While CLSC holds a position of never riding on the lake due to unforeseen dangers, there has been an advisory issued for all sleds to stay off the lake. Due to the heavy amounts of snow, ice conditions are poor in spots with very deep snow and slush. We have already lost multiple sleds so please don’t let it be a life we lose next!

Trails are in GREAT shape and the colder temps are back and expected to last through the weekend. We have a good base with more snow in the forecast and some icy spots so use caution around corners as it will be a busy weekend.

This weekend we are having our annual Spaghetti Dinner at the clubhouse from 12-6PM on 2/14 which is the same weekend as the Chautauqua Winter Festival, be sure to stop by for this fun event! We are always looking for volunteers to work the parking lot, if interested please contact us to setup a time. We will also be selling 50/50 at the clubhouse on 2/14. 1 for 2, 3 for 3 and 8 for 5. Winner does not need to be present to win!

The annual poker run benefiting StartFlight will be held on Sunday 2/15 with registration starting at 11AM. Check out our website for a flyer as well as starting locations.

Trails are still in good shape following the warmup with temps in the 40’s and some freezing rain. Grooming will be more productive once the temps go back down later this week. Temps are expected to be cold and a few snow days are in the forecast so conditions should improve once we can smooth things out again and get a little fresh snow. Use caution around corners as they may be icy.

Trails are in excellent condition and groomers are doing their best to take care of 200 miles of trails in our county. We have nearly 2 feet of snow in most of the trails system and plenty of base for some of the best riding conditions we’ve seen in a while. Because of all the new fluffy snow and wind you will see some moguls in spots but we are out grooming to try and take care of problem areas. Please remember to treat lightly on newly groomed trails and keep tracks from spinning. The better you treat the trail, the better it will stay until the next groomer visit. Remember this the next time you running over moguls asking yourself where the groomer has been! Stay safe and stay right!

This weekend is the All Club Ride-In at the Stockton Fairgrounds from 11-3 on 2/8. Be sure and stop by to enjoy one of the best events of the year. 3 Seas in Mayville is also hosting Polaris Demo Days on 2/7 from 1-4PM at the lakefront for those of you who want to try a new sled demo ride!

Conditions continue to improve as of 1/28 with the cold temps and grooming work. Trails are in good to very good condition now. Temps are expected to stay cold for the foreseeable future and we even have a little snow in the forecast. Should be a great weekend for Winterfest in Bemus point and the 4th of July Picnic in French Creek, be sure and come out to enjoy these yearly events.

After checking the trails on 1/25 we have decided to upgrade conditions to Fair/Good. Even with minimal base our groomers have done an outstanding job at bringing the snow to the trails. Trails around Sherman and the west side of the lake are especially good. ALSO, C-4 and C-4E are now OPEN to Ellery's system since they opened today (1/26). Gates are all unlocked and mostly swung open. We will get the groomer through as soon as possible. Get out and enjoy the trails!

CLSC trails will open Friday 1/23/15. Conditions LIMITED. Low base with ice and some fresh snow over the ice. Ride with CAUTION. Trail C-4 from junction 104 headed toward Hartfield & Stockton is closed because Ellery’s trails are still closed. Please respect Landowners

Chautauqua Lake trails will be closed Sunday 1/18 due to warm temps and possible rain. Trails were ridden hard today and not much remains of the base. It appears all clubs will be closed Sunday until cold and snow returns. Please respect the landowners and stay off the trails until they are opened once again.

Because we haven't had any additional snow in the past few days the trails are starting to show their age. We still have just under a foot of snow and small base but with warmer weather coming we are uncertain of the trail status from day to day. As of now the hot dog roast is still on for Saturday so come out to S47 at 12:30-2:30 in Mount Pleasant State Park for a bite to eat! We are also having a 50/50 and bonfire at this location. 1 ticket for $2.00 or 2 tickets for $3.00. Winner need NOT be present to win. See you there!
