We will be closing the trails Monday 8:00 AM 2/13/2017. We will open when we get more snow and cools down. It saved the trails the last time we did this.
Below is a list of trail reports from our Trail Bosses. Check back often to view conditions, closings, and any other updates. If you have a trail update that you'd like to share with our club, please use the contact form below and submit your feedback to our Trail Bosses so we can help spread the word.
Trails are back open on Feb 1st at 7am. They are in good condition but there is a problem on the Butler Springs trail. Logging has been taking place on Butler Springs Rd and will continue for the next few weeks. The loggers removed most of the snow on the trail. Since it has snowed the groomer drivers have been out on this trail trying to regroom it. We don't know if the loggers will come back and take off the new snow that has recently fallen. If you are familiar with the ATV trail that runs next to the snowmobile trail, through Butler Springs, you, can use this trail. If we continue to have a problem with keeping it groomed, we plan to start grooming the ATV trail. Also we have problems grooming in other areas with thin ice. On the Pipeline and a few other areas the ice is to thin for the groomer to groom but safe for snowmobiles to ride. Enjoy the trails again and please be respectful of the landowers property.
I hate to report this but we are keeping the trails close for the weekend, do to the water on the trails and fields have very little snow on them also we only ended up with 1/2''of snow no good for grooming. Maybe Monday we will get more snow and then we can open the trails back up
We will be closing the trails Wednesday 1/18/2017 7:00AM. We are trying to save the trails and get colder weather to open them back up.
9" of new snow, the trails will be groomed Wednesday and Thursday all but some marshes still need to freeze up. The groomer drivers said the trails are still very good in many areas after the weekend and before the new snow. Can you help us out when you ride in the areas not groomed pack down the outside of the trails not just stay in the middle of it, this will help freeze them up.
The trails are getting better, we have a good base and the snow we received Friday night and Monday night helped. The marshes still need time to freeze up, before we can groom them. Club member reported in this weekend and said the trails were fair to good condition in many areas. Snow is light on the east portion of the trail system, from Klondike north to White Potato Lake. Pipeline is in fair condition due to lack of grooming. Forest trails are fair to good.
The trails are open but the rain and 45 degree temps hurt the trails. There is water in low areas that needs to freeze up again. No groomers will go out until we receive 3 or more inches of new snow. Remain off the lakes due to unsafe conditions.
The groomers went out the last two days, to pan the trails, only to find out that the swamps are not frozen enough to support the groomers. Because of this, the drivers will only groom the forest roads, fields and areas which are dry. This is what we need from you early riders, ride the trails that are not groomed as well and also ride the sides not just the center. This will help freeze up the trails. Trails not groomed are the pipe line, trail to Suring, Kelly Lake area, Lost lake swamp, the west side of White Potato lake. just to name some areas. Where is standing water in Some areas were the groomers broke thru the ice.
The B & B Joyriders trails are now open today Dec. 17th @ 2:00pm. There is still one areas that is remaining closed, due to corn in a 40 acre field. This trail is from Cooley Lake to Hwy Z which heads to Suring or the Pipeline. The intersestion numbers are 407 to 415. This trail will reamain closed until next week sometime.
We don't plan to bring out the groomers until Tuesay, Dec 20th. Please ride the trails cautiously. There could be many dangerous areas because the club has not been through the complete system due to wet area. Stay off all lakes. Remember this is very early season riding.
