the wet snow is what the groomers will pan into a base. its gonna be cold at night this week. when it freezes it will preserve the trail, and limit dirt and debris in the snow on the trail. as long as we dont see a big thaw, its the best possible thing for the trail.

I made it back from the trails without hitting anything or anyone

We did about 120 miles on Sunday and another 20 or so yesterday morning just to help get the "soreness" out of the arms and shoulders. It's been a long time!!!!
No issues and I must have seen 500 other sleds on the trails and at the bars.

The trails were not too bad for the 1st real snow of the year. There was around 18 on the ground off the trail and we only saw a few bare spots in all of the riding we did this weekend.

I rode around Pine Stump Saturday & Sunday. We put on 350 miles & only met up with maybe 12 sleds. The trails were smooth & there was 17" of snow in the yard.
