Trail Report for the Weekend of 1/18
*****Informal Trail Report****
Lots of phone calls are coming in as many of you are anxious to ride! We have an optimistic look for riding-in the near future at least. Here’s what we know:
-A few inches of snow fell today (approx 3 inches in Speculator). Things look white and pretty again but we don’t feel we have fully recouped from our rain event, YET!
-Sat we are looking forward to a few inches of fresh snow during the day with the possibility of more overnight. Then we are hearing talk of some Lake effect on Sunday to get us back on the map for sure. The cold looks like it will be here for a while so that will definitely help!
-If this is a long weekend for you, hold on to hope and get ready to ride!
