It looks like the high sun of February, combined with a warming trend over the weekend, might play havoc with our trail system. Even though the
daytime temperatures will be near 40 degrees, the overnight lows will be around 20 degrees, which should allow us to keep the trails groomed.

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

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

Trail Concerns:
• Trails that run on snowmobile routes will be the first ones to be affected by the warming temperatures. They include Corridor 10 (Scotchman Lake Rd), Corridor 12 (Kennedy Fire Lane), Trail 9 (Cedar Falls Drive), Trail 10A (Camp Nine Road) and Trail K (Manhardt Road). I also suspect that Trail K, East of TIN-671 (Lower Kaubashine Road), will have little to no snow left on it.

• 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:
The club is still in need of Groomer Operators, especially if you can work weekend shifts or are willing to groom out of the shed in the Pier/Willow Area. Contact Tom Teichmiller at (715) 892-5642 or tomteichmiller@hotmail.com if interested.

Weather Outlook (as reported by weather.com):  High temperatures in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees will prevail during the weekend
and through Monday afternoon. During the remainder of the week, the daytime high temperatures will will drop back below freezing.
