Winter is back...
Winter is back and Spring is around the corner with maybe another storm next week.
We have let the snow settle a bit and allowed sleds to pack the trails some. We will be out grooming with the machine this weekend. Remember that we are all volunteers and this is the first opportunity we have had to go out. A few active club members have cleared some downed trees ahead of us out toward Pittsfield so as to make our grooming job a bit easier. There are open water bars and DO NOT GO ON ANY BODY OF WATER.
If you are riding be sure to help the groomer operators by moving and/or cutting any debris in the trail if possible. We can get thru the trail easier and safer. Getting in and out of the groomer is tough on the operators since they get snowy and wet then cold.
Have fun, watch out for the groomer and ride with caution.

With the warmer temperatures and lack of snow we have to close the trails until we get a SIGNIFICANT snow storm or several snow events. You will need to head north and chase the snow at this point. Anything can happen because we have had big snow months in March before!
Our next regular club meeting is Thursday, March 1st at Land Dimensions on Rt4 in Epsom. Meeting starts at 7pm. All are welcome to attend.

Finally snow but will it be enough. The trails, or what is left, are very icy and bare with water bars throughout.
So go out and ride but be careful. We will probably not be grooming until later because the groomer will not make it on the icy trails. We need time, and sleds to run over the snow, so the snow will bind to the ice.
Stay tuned...we will do what we can.

Meeting coming up Feb 1
Our next regular meeting is Thursday Feb 1 at Browns Repair Shop on RT4 at 7pm. We are going to check out the new custom drag. If we all do a snow dance maybe mother nature will bless us with some snow. Looks like we may be getting back into a snowier weather pattern which would sure make everyone happier.
We have a lot of new members to the club and I invite them to come and join us at the next meeting.
You can check us out on Facebook also...
Hope to see you there!

Back to square one
The rain really did a number on all the grooming efforts this season. The trails are not passable right now and all grooming is suspended until we get some significant snow.
All the clubs in the southern part of the state are in the same condition and we will all have to wait for Mother Nature to bless us with more snow.
If you do head north to ride, it would be a good idea to check local trail conditions because the entire state took a bit hit with the rain and warm weather.
