Trails will close today and all gates will be closed by tomorrow. April 1st closing for the first time in many years. It was a great season once it got started in early February. Over 300 hours of grooming on our 48 miles of trails this year. Huge thanks go out to our dedicated (and exhausted) grooming team. You work as greatly appreciated by everyone out there.
We had a pretty good season for memberships as well. If you know anyone out there that is a member of another club that would like to show some appreciation the best way to do that is to join our club as a secondary membership though the NYSSA membership site. It’s $20 for a second membership and the money goes directly back in to the trails and groomer maintenance.
The off season starts now for our limited volunteer group. We really need new people to get involved. We have 1 open At Large Board of Directors seat and lots of work to do this summer. Our Barn will be going up this summer and we’ll need help and donated materials for that as well. Please email of contact the club per the website to get involved. Our last meeting will be Tuesday April, 8th at the Greenfield Community Center at 7:30.
See you next year!
Conditions held up very well through the weekend and trails were all groomed Sunday Morning. There is full coverage on 99% of the system and we have overall great conditions. Winter will hold on through thursday, then the weatherman says that Spring will be here on Friday. This week will be your last chance at riding good conditions so go get that last ride in.
There is an open water hole on plank road (C8A) that you need to be very careful of and the logging section of the Sacadaga Trail is down to mud in many places but other than that we still have mid winter conditions.
Both of our Groomers are down again and we ran out of diesel so more than likely we are done grooming this year but conditions probably won’t allow us to groom this coming weekend anyway. It’s been a great winter (minus January) and our groomer operators have put in amazing amounts of time for you guys so everyone join me in thanking them again.
We picked up another inch or two of snow last night and the trails continue in good shape. There are a few icy corners and the warmer temps during the day combined with below freezing night time temperatures will see things start to get worse. This weekend will be great though and we plan on grooming continuously through the end of March when the trails will close.
Tinney’s Grand re-opening celebration starts this weekend with specials everyday and a band saturday night. See there Facebook page for more details.
Trails were groomed through the weekend and conditions held up pretty well considering it was so warm on Saturday. Grooming will continue through the week and with the really cold temperatures the trails should set up nice and hard for everyone. There’s tons of snow still and late winter conditions should continue through the weekend. There’s no sign of spring yet so get out and ride.
Well we missed out on the huge snow amount just 30 miles to our north in Warren county but the trails are still well covered and with the 6 or so inches of heavy snow and sleet we picked up they will groom out well for you to ride this weekend. Tinney’s Tavern is opening at Noon from today through Sunday.
