    December 16, 2017

    Swedetown -The Husky is off the leash and running free. All trails tilled and tracked, beautiful conditions. Multi loops rolled.

    Churning Rapids Snow Bike Trail – All trails groomed Friday night. Basswood loops were groomed for the first time this season and are soft. A few inches of fluffy snow fell after grooming, but trails should be rideable with low tire pressure.

    Maasto Hiihto/Churning Rapids -This morning we rolled the snow that fell overnight and decided some trails were now deep enough to make tracks. Granted, things are quite rough and wet spots remain, nonetheless, tracks were made on all city side trails and the gorge until Tomasi pit road. From there the old trail or trail 8 to Churning Rapids has tracks; trail 4 towards Mud Lake, and the trail on the east side of the lake (trail 9). Trails aren’t perfect yet but skiing isn’t bad.
