Snow/Trail Conditions Update 3-11-18

We received 4 inches of new snow yesterday, which made riding a great day!  The temps were back down as well.  The trails and off trail are still in good shape up and around us.  Anything east of Dumont is pretty much in poor shape. Far as we know, everything else is holding up.  We are supposed to have about 3 days of 40 degree weather this week.  I think one day will be close to 50.  The temps are supposed to drop back to the 30’s and 50% chance of snow by St. Patrick’s weekend and continue with a chance of snow off and on through that following week.  That is what they are predicting for now.

Right now, riding is still good to really good up and around us. We are still renting sleds as well.  Trails will still be groomed through March 30th if there is enough to groom.

Snow/Trail Conditions Update 3-8-18

Trails are still in awesome shape and I am told that off trail is still very good as well.  It is supposed to be in the 40’s today and tomorrow and snow again Friday night and Saturday, with the temps dropping for a few days.  We did get 4-6 inches of new snow this past Monday.

It is supposed to be in the 40’s next week and then a good chance of snow starting the 16th through the 22nd and the temps are dropping then as well.

We might make it to the end of the season, which is March 31st.  The trails can be groomed up to the 30th.

Snow/Trail Conditions Update 2-28-18

The trails on and off are still in awesome shape!  If you have been wanting to come out to the Black Hills and ride, this is the year.  You can go everywhere on the trail system.  That isn’t always possible every year.  It has been in the 30s this week and we will have 2 days of the lower 40’s and then back down in the 20s for next week.  Snow is predicted for late Saturday night, Sunday, Sunday night and Monday. Another chance of snow the following Saturday thru Tuesday. I believe our season is actually going to make it to the end of March!

Snow/Trail Conditions Update 2-19-18

Trails are still the best they have ever been in the last 6 years or more.  Off trail is really exceeding as well. We got another 9 inches or more of new snow in the last 2 days.  The wind blew, so it is hard to tell how much we really did get.  The news said Lead got 12.5 inches.  The trees and meadows are filling in nicely. Riders are telling us that it is chest deep or more in places, off trail.  There is still more snow in the forecast and the temps are going to stay down in the single digits, teens, and 20’s for the next 15 days.  It is looking better and better for our season to last till the end of March or more.  It will take quite a bit to knock out this trail system.  There is a lot of snow out there!!

Check out our facebook page “Trailshead Lodge”, and look below our posts.  Riders have posted pictures of what it is like out in the Black Hills.

Trail/Snow Conditions 2-14-18

Trails are still in awesome shape and only going to get better.  That goes for off trail as well, according to the other riders.  Our 34 degree temp today and yesterday won’t do any damage, just settle the base a little more.  More snow in the forecast starting tonight, Thursday, Friday night, Saturday night, all day Sunday and Sunday night and into Monday.  Our temps after today are going to stay down in the teens, 20’s and some single digits.

Groomers still going out every night.  If I don’t post often, that is because there hasn’t been any change.

If you go to our facebook page and look below the posts, you can see pictures posted by riders that they have been taken in the last 2 weeks. That will show you what it is like out there.

Snow Update 2-9-18

We  have gotten 17 inches of new snow since last Saturday, Feb 3rd.  Riders are telling us that they have not seen it this good in 6 years.  Riders are also telling me that the off trail is waist deep and awesome.  We are too busy to find out ourselves, so I am getting this information from the riders.  Our temps are going to stay down in the teens, 20’s, and 30’s for the next 15 days and more snow is in the forecast as well.  We have gotten around 8 feet of snow since the beginning of the season.

Snow/Trail Conditions Update 2-5-18

Trails are still in awesome shape!  Trail 7 and 2F do get a little thin.  Trail 1 is good all the way north and south of us.  We did get another 6 inches of new snow over the weekend.  3-5 inches is predicted for Thursday night and 1-3 inches on Friday.  We do have a chance for an inch here and there as well on the other days.  Our temps are going to stay down in the teens, 20’s, and 30’s for the next 15 days.  It has been blowing and drifting a few of the days, so the meadows, trees and trails are filling in nicely.

Check out the February issue of the Snowgoer.  We were nominated again for the 2nd year in a row as one of the 101 Great Snowmobile Pitstops.

Trail/Snow Conditions 2-1-18

We got another 3 inches of new snow Tuesday night and Wednesday.  We have a 70% chance of snow Friday night with possibly 1-3 inches. 100% chance of snow Saturday with 1-3 inches and 3-5 Saturday night, 1-3 inches Sunday night, 1-3 inches on Monday, 1-3 Tuesday night and a continued chance of snow for the next 15 days.  Our temps are going to stay in the 20s and 30s for the most part for the next 15 days.  It is looking good for our future.  This forecast changes daily.  It all depends on how the jet stream is going to come through.

Groomers still going out nightly and the trails are in awesome shape.  Off trail is improving everyday.

Trail Conditions 1-30-18

The trails are still in awesome shape.  It was 40 yesterday and supposed to get to 40 today, but it is cloudy, so that saves our snow. The temps are going back down after today. We have a chance of snow later today and everyday for the next 15 days.  Some days are a higher percentage of a chance and more amount than other days.  Our temps are going to be in the teens, 20’s and 30’s.  We have a good snow base and our ground is good and cold.  We hold our snow up here.

You can get all the way north and south of us on the trail system.  The only trails that aren’t the best is trail 7 over by 385 and 3F to Flag Mountain.  Groomers have been going out nightly.

Trail Conditions 1-28-18
