December 14, 2017 – 5:15 pm update – WINTER HAS ARRIVED! It has been a good week for snow and cold weather and there should be some good opportunities for riding in the snow belts this weekend. If you do hit the trails remember you are likely to find early-season conditions with all the problems associated with a thin base and unfrozen water. In the snow belts some groomers have been doing some initial runs with a lot of panning and packing. Some more snow is expected going into the weekend, so groomers in more areas will be able to get out on the trails and smoothen things out.
Check the forecasts and the snow depth maps for the regions with the most snow.
There is also GOOD NEWS in the longer-term forecasts with generally cold weather and snow continuing right into Christmas and the holiday season.
STAY TUNED. We’ll be back with more updates before the snow begins to fly….
You can keep track of the snow in the forecast by checking out the Radar Loop
