3-19-2020 Trail/Snow Update

Trails still have a lot of snow on them up and around us. They are still being groomed and will be so up to the 31st, as temperatures and snow allow them. The temperatures are going to be down now today and tomorrow and be in the upper 30’s over the weekend. We are supposed to get some snow tonight and chances for several days next week as well. We are still renting snowmobiles through the 31st of March.

We will remain open through the end of the season (March 31st) and through the first weekend of April. After that, we will close at sometime for cleaning and more renovations. You may still call and leave a message, if we don’t answer, if you are interested in making UTV or cabin reservations for the future. UTV trails don’t open until May 15, if they are not delayed due to wetness.

3-14-2020 Snow/Trail Update

2 inches of new snow yesterday/last night. 4-5 inches towards Lead and probably more or the same towards Mt Meadow. Trails are still good. They are a thin in the usual spots. There is still a lot of snow out there. The snow has set up. It may be hard in the morning, but as the day goes on, it softens up. There is still untouched snow, you just have to go over a few ridges. The snow is still soft in the shaded and protected areas.

Bigger system coming through next week around Thursday. Will keep this page posted and our FB page on what happens. Temps will continue to be in the 20s and 30s for the next 14 days.

Trails are groomed nightly and will continue to be groomed up to the 31st as long as the temperatures and snow will allow it.

Still a lot of snow out there. That isn’t an issue for our trail system up around us. Temps are coming back down some. Wednesday will be our warmest in the low 40’s and then 20s and 30s for the next 14 days. Snow is in the forecast, starting Wednesday night through Friday and then again Sunday (15th) through Wednesday (18th). That is the forecast as of today.

Trails remain open through March 31st. They will continue to groom the trails if the temperatures are low enough for them to work the snow.

Snow is still awesome out there. We still have a LOT of it!! We got 2 to 3 feet last week and 5 inches of new snow this week. It is going to be in the 40’s Friday and Saturday and the down again in the 30s for a few days. More snow in the forecast for St Patrick’s weekend. Looks like a good amount right now, but that can change 7 times before then.

When you have to unbury the trail markers, you know there is a lot of snow out there. The riders are still telling us that it is awesome riding. We should be able to make it through the end of the season, which is March 31st.

02/26/2020 Trail/Snow Update

We have been blessed with a lot of new snow. We received 18 inches of new snow here at Trailshead from Monday to Tuesday and up to 30 inches or more northeast of us. We are to get 2 to 5 inches tonight into tomorrow. The trails are in awesome shape. There is a lot of snow out there!! More snow in the forecast for next week as well. Temps will be warmer this Friday (37) and Saturday (41). Last weekend it was 42 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and didn’t do much for damage. All the tracks have been covered up. It is like a new playground out there.

Just a heads up, both of our plows are down, we are in the process of fixing the them and trying to buy a new one, at this point, the lot across the road from us is NOT plowed, but people have been able to get in and out of there yet at this point. There is another lot a mile down the road across from Hardy Guard Station if you would like to park there.

Another 5 inches of snow on this past Thursday. 3-6 inches is predicted for today through Sunday morning. More snow in the forecast for everyday through next Wednesday. Temps will be in the upper teens and lower 20’s. Trails are in awesome shape and groomed nightly. All riders tell us that they have never seen this much snow in a long time and it is awesome! No one is complaining other than being exhausted.

We have gotten 12.5 feet throughout our season so far. We are 4 feet ahead of last year at this time and last year was a good year.

Viewers have been frustrated with our web cam. It is working. This is the glory of living off the grid. It is on satellite internet. It is on the biggest data program we can purchase for it. It usually only lasts part of the month and then the speed drops dramatically, that is why it won’t come up. When you do get the image to come up, please don’t keep it open all day long, it eats the data up. Be courteous and look at it and then back out, so we can save the data throughout the month. The data will be renewed here this week sometime.

If everyone could help us and encourage our governor and/or representatives that we need fiber out here, our internet would last longer and we would be able to share it as well. With no cell service out here and unable to share our WiFi, because there isn’t any to share, it is a huge public safety issue. We have contacted more than one cell company to offer free land for a tower, and have expressed the big public safety issue, but we get no response.

1-30-2020 Snow/Trail Update

We have been blessed with another 6 plus inches of new snow in the surrounding area, today. The wind blew pretty hard, so it is a lot deeper in places. It is going to be great riding this tomorrow and Saturday! It will be 37 tomorrow (Friday) and 42 on Saturday. The temps are going back down on Sunday, I believe a high of 18 with more snow. There is more snow in the forecast for more than one day next week as well. The temps are going to stay down.
