We got some new snow; we have about 12 inches at the Shed. I went out today to J-4 and on to Trail I up to J-5 on to Trail G Sunflower Loop Turned around at 26N31 because nobody had ridden any further than that. Several Sleds went to the High Lakes. The parking lot was almost full. Doubled back to J-5 and no tracks up Trail F to Humbug Summit so I left it to the Powder hounds to break in before I head that way. Back to J-4 and up Trail B to the first switch back and no tracks beyond that, don’t want to groom a trail with no tracks on it. So back to the Shed, it was 40 deg. and the snow down low is really wet, it was sticking to the tiller and wasn’t grooming very well. Need to Groom when its colder. Sorry I didn’t take any pictures today. I might go riding tomorrow.

Another really nice day out today. Headed out to J-4 Trail I there are some bare pavement spots just past the Jonesville Hotel, snow is getting thin, on to J-5 to Trail G Sunflower Loop Snow is pretty good past J-5 still soft and not many tracks. Removed a few trees that had fallen across the trail, went on to Trail 26N31 to J-6 and on to Trail D to the warming hut, emptied the trash check the bathrooms and headed back, snow is soft and plenty of it on the north slopes. Returned to J-6 and on to Trail F to J-5 to Trail I and back to the Shed. Trails are smooth and they should freeze up tonight, be careful with your speed on the groomed trails in the morning they will be icy and slick.

Empty the Trash, stocked the Bathrooms with TP. Headed back to the Shed from J-6 Trail F Humbug Summit also had about 8-12 inches of new snow, to J-5 to Trail I to J-4.

More fresh snow, 24” at the Shed. Headed out to J-4 on Trial B up to Robbers Roost and down the switch backs. Snow was very deep on the backside, down to Ruffa Ranch where there is a Pick-up truck parked in the middle of the road, it is almost buried. I was able to groom around it. On to Fanani Meadows to J-10, On to Trail C to Hwy 89 I turned around 2 miles from the highway because that was my just below half a tank of Fuel warning. The Bully worked really hard all the way there, used up more fuel than I expected. Doubled back to Trail B and back to the Shed.

I was at the Groomer Shed today to check on the snow conditions and to go over the two Groomers
We have 9 inches at the shed we need 12 to start Grooming.
The Bully is Fueled, greased and ready to go.
The Bomb needs new batteries and I picked them up today, going back up tomorrow to install.
Hopefully we get some more snow soon, there were some Snowmobilers at the parking lot today.
I plowed the parking lot and some of the road just to clean up the ruts. Gate is still open as it should be until we start Grooming
