Trails are getting whacked from gentle thawing temps and
light rain/drizzle on Tuesday. There is about 9"
of heavy wet snow off trail and where the trails had
been beaten down are now ice covered if not wet and icy
Nighttime lows have firmed up the pack nicely to
preserve a good snow and ice pack.
Forecast isn't looking much better for the weekend with
expected daytime high temps at or over the 40º mark
Saturday and Sunday. A change in the forecasts is
now bringing a slow decline in daytime temps from the
mid 40's Sunday to the mid 30's come Wednesday in the
new work week.
A chance of a little rain and snow showers Friday early
afternoon then the skies dry up and remain mostly cloudy
until late Sunday afternoon when a chance of some light
rains mixed with snow may fall from the skies by Sunday
night. Monday has a good chance of rain and/or snow
showers returning with the declining temps in the coming
new work week.

the upcoming Sno*Drift Rally next weekend.

forecast. Let's look for a wintery surprise for Rally
Keep your eye's on the calendar and make a date on
