Snowmobile and Ski Trail Conditions Report – 2.28.19

snowmobile on the trailSoaring Eagle Ski Trails – 2/21/2019 Excellent conditions continue at Soaring Eagle, as the groomers have been working hard to keep up with all the snow! We had another 4″ Wednesday, and skate lanes were done Thursday. The classic tracks were left with fluffy snow, but we broke trail and several others followed in the afternoon, so conditions should be fine throughout today. Watch for a big hole on the first part of Lilly’s loop, which we determined was animals digging down for a deer carcass. How did that get there? Open house Sunday from 1-3:30, depending on weather.

Nevis Trailblazers – 2/23/2019 Snow Report  What a year!! Nevis Area received another 4-5 inches last night!! And it was 28 degrees today and the sleds were out in full force!! So good to see!!  Get out for a ride!!

Forest Riders Snowmobile Club – 2/26/2019 – We received another dusting.

2/25/2019 – That was some wicked wind yesterday. There will definitely be heavy drifting in open areas with all the new snow. The guys are coming across a few limbs and debris on the trail. Ride with extra caution. Snow in the forecast for Tuesday as well.
