Weekly Trail Report 02-07-2020

Because of last weekend’s above freezing temperatures and colder temperatures this past week, the snow conditions on the trails have been causing
machines to overheat. It’s recommended that snow scratchers be used to avoid this problem.

Forest Rider Trails:
All trails are in Very Good to Excellent condition.

Willow Region Trails (reported by Jim Bosben, President):
All trails are in Very Good Condition.

Trail Concerns:
• Trail K East of TIN-671 has very little snow on Lower Kaubashine Road
• Trail 5 from TIN-517 to TIN-515 has logging trucks using the trail

Trail Closings:
• Trail 5 from Willow Road (TIN-525) to the Spillway (TIN-524)
• Trail A

Trail Grooming:
Corridor 12, Corridor 10, Trail 9, Trail 5 and Trail BB are groomed at least 4 times a week; All other club trails are groomed twice a week. To maintain quality trails, our grooming machines will be out during daytime hours.
