DECEMBER 16th, 2017
Gates are open and trails are legal for riding, but not advisable yet. We are working on building the base.   Groomers have gone thru to clear trees and start packing. We have about 3-5 inches of fluff throughout the trail system. Going thru and clearing trees.  Need more cold temps to freeze up the open water holes and more snow to pack up the ditches and low areas.  Conditions are thin.  

Wayne has been out in Raquette on Browns Tract Loop and he’s been dragging and working on the base.  A few riders are trickling in from Inlet.  Woods are thin and not enough coverage for ride thru on the 7th Lake Mt. Trail yet – concerned about stumps and mud holes.  

Snowmobile trails do not cross lakes, and lakes are not part of our trail system. Ride Safe!
