Traverse City, Cadillac and Glacial Hills will be groomed for the weekend.
Help your groomers by bending back branches and shaking snow off the trees during your ride.
Please postpone your riding until afternoon. This will allow the groomers to get off the trail and the snow to firm up.
Report: NMMBA Report #7
NWS Forecast here.
We received about three inches of fresh snow over the last 24 hours. The heavy bike traffic has been packing all the bike trails in Vasaland. With the warm temperatures and not having enough snow to fill in the groove we will be holding off grooming.
I'm pretty sure the bikes are self grooming better than we can until we have four to six inches of accumulation. Unfortunately, with warm temperatures predicted and not much new snow it looks like grooming will not commence until after the new year.
We may groom Riley's if it looks like it will help preserve the base.
Despite the bleak outlook the riding is absolutely stellar. Get out and enjoy.
Cadillac and Glacial Hills have similar conditions with Leelanau State Park remaining closed.
NWS Forecast here.
Well we had a stellar weekend on the Traverse City trails. We groomed almost the entire 22 mile system only leaving loggers run untouched. With the warming weather and the self grooming packing down the summer trench we will be holding off on grooming again until we get a significant amount of snow.
Cadillac, Glacial and Bike Leelanau (Leelanau State Park in Northport) are all waiting to receive more snow also.
My apologies to all of those who purchased badges at Brew and missed this weekends reports.
You can thank Dave Sunset Scott and Chelsea Schlick for poking me to add everyone and removing a couple very large leaning trees from the winter singletrack.
Don't worry about hurting the trails by riding on them there is not enough snow to do significant damage.
