Grooming will officially start after this next snow fall

The groomer team had one machine (North end) out for a short run last night.  Normal grooming will begin after this next snow fall.

Let’s all hope we get closer to the 5″ than 3″ side so the groomer can get some work done!

 

Think Snow!

Closed Trails for 2015 – Click for Maps

Just a reminder about which trails are closed and how to get to Lake Desolation.¬† When coming from Sacandage on C8, at SR06 take the left towards the firetower side of the mountain on S86.¬† At SR05 take the right on C8 towards the old ski hill trail, however you must now take S87 at SR25 because C8 to the ski hill is CLOSED (KEEP OUT!!!).¬† This will then bring you C8A (and it’s the only place it will bring you as all other trails are CLOSED this year due to logging, KEEP OUT!!!).

Also be reminded that ALL access to Ormsbee road is PERMANENTLY CLOSED.  Do no try and enter from there or you could be ticketed for trespassing.  The same is true for the Ski Hill Section of C8.  KEEP OUT!!!

Stay off ALL plowed roads.  If you are on a plowed road, you are on a CLOSED trail.  These areas are being monitors with cameras and DEC will issue tickets based on camera footage!  KEEP OUT!!!

Your cooperation with closures ensures we will keep our trails open.¬† If people are ignoring them the entire system is in danger of closing this year.¬† The logging company owns the land and we must do what they say.¬† If you can’t abide, please stay home.

Let’s all think SNOW for tonight!

Well let’s all start thinking BIG SNOW thoughts for tonight and tomorrows event! ¬†If we get close to what they are predicting we will be sitting pretty with the trails. ¬†With the cold staying in place we will have a solid base for this snow to snuggle up with. ¬†The groomers will be ready to go.

It’s been another frustrating start to the year, but if it ends like last year we should all be able to get some miles on.

As we open the trails please follow the by-pass trails and the re-route.  Please abide by the snow fence we have put up, we have trails closed due to logging.  If you get caught riding on Ormsbee Rd they (Lyme Lumber) could close us down until they are done logging.  That would suck to say the least.

 

THINK BIG SNOW!
