Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: Getting better
Date of Report: February 21, 2023
Yesterday, we received round 1 of a three part snow event. Sayner received about 4″ so far. This first round was very dry & fluffy. It will not stick on the trails, so be aware that the base is still ice. Hills and corners will continue to be difficult to navigate. You may see a fresh coating of snow, but you’re still going to be riding on the ice.
Round 2, tonight, is supposed to be fairly minimal in accumulations. The bigger system is coming Wednesday evening through Thursday. Forecasts vary, but there is potential for an additional 4-8″ by end of Thursday. Let’s hope this comes with some moisture in it! Another 8″ of fluff won’t really improve conditions.
At this point, the Barnstormers are planning to resume grooming operations Thursday night.
Once again, we need to emphasize, STAY ON THE TRAIL! Two of our neighboring clubs have had to close nearly 20 miles of trails due to riders being disrespectful by trespassing on private property. The land owners have had enough and have forced trail closures.
TRAIL CLOSURE NOTICE: Due to ongoing logging operations, the Barnstormer’s trail #51 is CLOSED between TIN 344 and 353! DO NOT RIDE THIS SECTION OF TRAIL!
