Before Christmas, there was some decent riding in town, then we got a bit of rain but we had enough to keep our base. Riders this past week said that the trails were bumpy in some areas but really good considering. This weekend we got about 5-6 inches here in town. And the flurries continue Groomers went east and south last night.
The Pittston Bully groomer needed major repairs and has been in the shop a few weeks now waiting for parts. Without going into detail, they hope to have it up and running by the end of the week. I mention this as this is the only groomer that can truly work the terrain of the border loop and 89 north. This weekend, they did get a tractor up that way and one of our other groomers was going to try but until the Bully is up and running, norhtern loops are not going to be their best.
Have no fear, riding east and south should be great. Pittston Farm reports good condition as well as southern clubs around Parlin. Parlin reports an ice jam on ITS 87 that they will have signed.
The trail master has not reported that Big Wood or other lakes are safe but there are ice shacks, sleds and trucks out there this weekend. Just use caution out there, around curves on the trails and a bit of common sense. Watch for signage.
