Just wanted to send out a huge thanks to all of you who helped pack trails this weekend. Hopefully with some more cold weather and if we can get ice checking done, we can get the big machines out on the ice to groom.
If you know of anyone that can help with trail clearing or staking trails, please let us know. Although there is a permit price to ride the trails….that money DOES NOT pay for all the trail clearing, packing trails, lake staking, installing signage, and groomer operators….all these tasks are done by volunteers. We need more volunteers to be able to put in the trails sooner than later.
Currently we are floating(moving groomers on semi trailers) to land portions of trails to groom them until the ice is safe.
As an FYI, we require 16″ of clear blue ice for the big groomers to go on the lakes. And we don’t go before we know.
