Our season was shorter than we would have liked. When it was good it was real good. Special thanks again to the many landowners, WMNF. those who worked on the many trail projects, supported and donated to our club and Baker River Valley Snowmobile Club for lending us their Mogul Master Drag.
Well our season is winding down as March has brought us a stronger sun and warm temperatures. As of today 90 % of our trails good, (See Pic) 2% are bare and 8% are in between. We will groom Friday and Friday night for the weekend. After this weekend there will be no further grooming unless we get decent snow and cold temperatures. Typically we get decent snow in March so keep your fingers crossed.
BST Trails this thursday morning are getting rain trying to turn to snow. Hopefully we can get a couple inches at the end of this storm. We will not be grooming until the temperatures drop which should be Friday. We will make every effort to provide good riding for this weekend and beyond as temps allow. We have a good base to work with but its got to harden up to groom. PLEASE slow down and show respect for the other people who may be using the trail system including skiers and hikers. A friendly wave goes a long way.
Mother Nature has finally given us a snowy winter. All our trails are groomed and riding is excellent. This weekend should the best riding of the season thus far. We groomed Eagle Cliff Trail and Eagle Point View Trail for the first time this season; but there are some stumps still showing so be alert. Massachusetts vacation week begins this weekend, so expect lots of riders. If you like our trails, please support our club… Thank you. BST
With Thursdays 3 inches of new snow and Fridays predicted 5 to 8 inches of new snow our trails will be good this weekend as our groomers will have plenty of new snow to work with. Cold temperaures will be needed to keep the base hard.
According to the local weather channel this January has averaged 8 degrees above normal. This has left most clubs with many difficult decisions to stay open or suspend grooming. We continue to groom as temperatures allow. We need snow bad. Trails are fair to good. This weekends weather looks great to get some local riding in. Our BR 180 is out grooming for the weekend.
First and foremost a special THANK YOU to Baker River Valley Snowmobile Club for lending us their spare drag for the remainder of this season to allow us to groom with our BR 180. (see below) We have good to excellent riding on 90 percent of our system. Grooming is ongoing as temperatures allow. Eagle Cliff Trail is open but not groomed. Please be aware that there are stumps and hazards on sections of that trail. Hope you can enjoy the trails before Saturday nights expected rain.
We received 8 to 10 inches of snow Thursday and this is what we needed to get back to good conditions. The trails have running water and open waterbars from last weekends rain. Trails are open but use caution. With the predicted cold weather and more snow this weekend, grooming will resume Monday. A special thanks to Jeff, Guy and Joe for their generous donation of a new gas caddy. Thank you.
We received 3-5 inches of new snow this week and the crews worked hard to get our trails flat filling waterbars and grooming as weather permitted. We are about 90 % open with good riding. We are hoping that the rain and warm weather doesn’t melt away to much snow but will evaluate that on Monday. If you can get out and ride tomorrow it will be great. Groomer opened up Eagle Point today.
