Tom groomed C8 ,C4B and S80B to Horse Hill Road last night and these trails are in good to excellent condition.
The trail S80B to Fullers Corners is in fair condition.
the trail to Fullers trail S80B has been groomed and is icy and a little bumpy with the low snow conditions there was not a lot to work with.
All the other trails have been groomed and are in good to excellent condition.
There are no changes in the trail conditions our groomers have been out and the riding is good. Think Snow!
Looking for a place to ride?
Tinney's Tavern on Lake Desolation is now Open for business.
Trail C4B from the groomer barn to the 1st gate is a little thin and needs snow. From there to the Mulleyville Trail System the trails are in good to excellent condition ( the plowed logging road section has snow cover ). The trail S80B to Horse Hill Road is in excellent condition.Trail C8 from the lake to the 1st gate the trail is icy with slush spots and thin on snow on the bottom half with the creek crossing starting to be an issue. the top half to the C4B intersection is in good condition. The trail S80B to Fullers needs snow.
The slush on the lake has dried up but the frozen ruts make for some rough riding.
The Groomers were out yesterday and most of the trails are in good condition.
The cold weather is back and the grooming will resume. The trail to Fullers is rough , icy and needs more snow. Trail C8 had a lot of running water on it from the 1st creek crossing to the 2nd creek crossing and needs to freeze up before we can groom it. Trail C4B is a little rough with some bare spots from Turner road to the 1st gate. The rest of the trails have bare spots in the corners and are a little bumpy with couple of wet spots and a few rocks popping up but there is lot's of snow to work with and we will have them looking good in the next couple of days.
With the warm weather & rain & the HRBRRD slowly closing the dam you might find lot's of slush + water around the edges of the lake and Thin Ice Conditions in the Turner Road Trail C4B area.

The trails were getting a little thin in some places but this new snow storm is just what the Doctor ordered.
Watch out for the Groomers!
We had 12 to 17 inches of snow on Wednesday and the Groomers were out most of today packing the trails which are in good condition
Another 1 3/4" at the Groomer Barn from yesterdays Alberta Clipper.
The Snow totals from Saturdays snow storm were from 3" at the Groomer barn up to 9" near Mulleyville. The main trails were groomed this morning and conditions are fair with some good snow cover and some very boney spots.
Use caution as most of those bumps are rocks
Trail conditions are poor with only a couple of inches of snow cover.
It's been very cold and there is lot's of ice on the lake with snow cover for riding.
More rain and warm weather left the trails in extremely poor condition.
We need snow big time.
The lake has lot's of water around the edges and no snow.
Well warm weather and rain again on Sunday followed by extreme cold left the trails thin on base and hard as a rock with little or no lube for slides and cooling. the lake conditions are about the same with lot's of ice and little or no snow.
We had around 10" of new snow the last 2 days We were out with the SWT's yesterday but with the extreme cold we've been having it does not pack very well. The trails are open but you need to watch out for many hidden rocks plus most of the creeks are open.
With only a couple of inches of new snow riding the trails is NOT recommended at this time.
with 2 days of rain and warm weather the trails are pretty much shot expect spring like conditions with many rocks popping up and lots of running water + the plowed logging road on trail C-8 is 2 miles of mud & rocks.
We were just informed that they will be logging again on Trail C8. Please watch out for Logging Equipment and Trucks on the trail
With 11" of new snow The Trails are OPEN but have not been maintained at this time. Please watch out for downed trees and the many hidden objects that can be found after the 1st snowfall. Our crews will be out checking the trails by the weekend.The lake is frozen but is not considered safe for riding at this time. Remember to always check local ice conditions before traveling on any body of water.
