Trail Conditions: Good
Snow Cover: 5 Inches Average – On The Trail
Area Report: The Barnstormers would like to wish you all a Happy & Healthy New Year!!! May your miles be many and your accidents be ZERO!!! Keep Your Hoods and Your Helmets Upright!!!
Our trails right now are still good on average. The colder temps were certainly a welcome arrival. Before when we had the warm temps, areas where traffic becomes concentrated got ground down to mud – very quickly. We are receiving some light snow. Not much, but anything is a welcome addition. There is more light snow in the forecast for Saturday and all the way through next Tuesday.
Please use caution when crossing Plum & Star Lakes. Stay on the marked path. Slush holes can come and go, so please be prepared.
There are on going logging operations happening between the following intersection numbers; 205 & 353 on trail 6/10/11 and on 11/51 between 344 & 352. Out in that area, there are also logging trucks using Vandercook Rd, which is a Cross Country Cruisers trail. Trucks are hauling out from a lot of areas – so PLEASE be ready at all times to get out of their way! Get off to the side if you can or turn around as quickly as you can. These loggers are not out there to ruin your snowmobiling experience. They are out there trying to make a living. While they do plow snow off the trail, we ARE working with them the best we can, to leave as much snow on the trail as they can! There ARE LOGGING AHEAD SIGNS. Pay attention – heed their warning – SLOW DOWN!!!
As always, PLEASE RIDE SAFE!!! Expect the unexpected. Respect especially the groomers and also other riders. You are NOT the only one on the trail, so always expect traffic to be coming at you around every corner. Slow down and ride another day!!!
We have 15 groomer drivers this year, as usual, led by trail boss Dennis Horan. All of our drivers do an awesome job. Please give them a thank you if you see one of them somewhere!
