Mother nature helped us out with about 8" of fresh snow overnight! The trails are open again, so get out and ride! Be careful as the new snow is on a solid base of ice, conditions may be slippery, especially on the corners. If sleds can get out and pack down the new snow, the club will be out grooming, soon. Have fun!
UPDATE! After more rain last night the trails in Standish have been closed. Please stay off the trails until further notice. We do not want to lose access to the trails, so please respect the landowner's who allow us to use them and keep off until we get more snow... hopefully soon! Thank-you!
Mother Nature has not been behaving this week! We have had several days of warmer weather and rain. Last night we got about 1/2" of snow instead of the 3-5 inches predicted. Needless to say this is not helping our trail conditions. The good news is we have a solid base, so we just need a few good inches of snow to help with the grooming. Our crews are out doing what they can, but expect to see ice, water and a few small bare spots in the woods and sunny hillsides. Temps turn colder over the weekend. Most trails are rideable, but be careful!
Check out our awesome new Jeep groomer! This rig was purchased at auction and set up by our club mechanic. This is the perfect machine for our Standish trails equipped with studded tracks, winch and plenty of LED lighting. Let's all pray for snow this week so that we can get it out and create some flat trails!
Our groomers (Carl and Andy) were out and groomed from Dow Road to the Otter Ponds and up to the Two Black Dogs Pub in the center of town last night. Get out and ride!
See you at Pit Stop Fuels tomorrow (Saturday) 10am - 2pm! Raffle tickets, trail maps, club membership applications and great riding advise! :-)
