Because of mid 40 degree temperatures the past three days and then below freezing temperatures at night, the snow on the trails has become very hard packed and machines are once again showing signs of overheating. It’s recommended that snow scratchers be used to avoid this problem. Also, due to these weather conditions, trail sections on snowmobile routes are in poor to unridable condition.
