Trails are now snow, ice, dirt, slush and everything in between. At this point you can’t really hurt anything and hopefully the Fat Bike season is almost over. So feel free to ride even if they are mushy.
Now we will need to pay attention to mud and soft dirt trails. Please follow common sense and don’t leave ruts in the dirt. They stay with us for a long time.
As the trails open up, if you notice anything that requires attention please contact us through the “contact” tab and let us know. Thanks!
Plus 10 tomorrow. Not sure how riding will be, likely pretty soft and/or ice. I may just go for a hike (my legs could use the break!), maybe walk and scout out new trail (Ralph’s Trail and Max Connector). See how the day goes…still 6pm start for what ever you choose to give a go.Tyler in Everything
Good morning all,
Rides for the week are up on the calendar.
Be mindful of the trails. We are getting closer and closer to spring!!!
CheersJohnny in Everything
Planning a ride for 2pm on Sunday. Below zero for the weekend so we will find something to ride for sure!Johnny in Everything
It’s come up a couple of times now so I’d thought I’d post up a clarification…If you have signed up with the County to be a FDCF and completed the original application form you would of hopefully received an e-mail several weeks later about signing an additional waiver. Some folks have thought that they already did that with the application but this is required as well as a supplement to the original paperwork. I’ll include an attachment here. Just double check that you have competed it and sent it in. The first meeting is next Thursday & spring is coming! Hope to see you at the meeting.Johnny in Everything
Chris and I got out for a ride Monday night and had one of our best winter rides. Trails where hard packed and not very icy. Only bad thing was someone hiked the stick out and back while it was warm and left deep footprints the entire way. We actually diverted off and took a different way home. Too bad…
Tonight (Weds)…not sure what will happen it will completely depend on conditions. Worse case the snowmobile trail is packed solid but it may be a bit icy which is only an issue if you are “studless”. We’ll see.
I shouldn’t have to say it but as always with the temps warming up let’s not rut up the trails. There still is some below zero temps in the forecast so we are not done Fat Biking yet. See you!Tyler in Everything
Good afternoon All,
Rides for the week are posted onto the calendar.
CheersJohnny in Everything
This Saturday is shaping up to be an awesome day! Trails are well packed, cold temps at night and SUN!
12 o’clock start time…it looks like just above zero so we should still be ok as it’s going to be -13 Friday night. How long?? We’ll see how much fun we are having and go from there.Johnny in Everything
A bunch of us got out last night and the trails were in great shape…all ridable at a really fun pace, some challenging parts on the Ridge Trail but that’s it. This weekend (at least Sat) will be amazing! Stay tuned for the ride post.
Some of you may have noticed a snowmobile had been on the trails on the “hill bypass” and “Max trail” section as well as out very randomly through the woods. No need to be concerned about this as there was someone lost out there that was being searched for. So no need to fret, we will be fixing it up Friday night. Good news is that they were found and that is the most important concern.
See everyone soon!Johnny in Everything
I’m going to hit the trails at 11am if anyone cares to join in. See you!Johnny in Everything
I got out late yesterday. A big thanks to whoever got out for some grooming around the lollypop and stick, that was some serious work. I rode a small section of it to test it out and the pass with the tire was enough to get down to the hard base underneath and make it ridable on a Fat Bike. It looked perfect, then someone rode it after you..with a plus/skinny bike…
Anyway, I think everything that has been groomed is good to go with a Fat Bike for the weekend. It’s been powder snow so likely the best way to keep packing it is on the bike. So head out and enjoy the Forest!Johnny in Everything
Well we definitely got some snow! Riding last night was not an option so BBBrian, Shawna, Eric, Vince, Ryan and myself had an awesome snowshoe instead! It was a beautiful night, no wind, fluffy snow and silence in the Forest. Awesome. We shoed and pulled the groomer through the “Wedsnesday” loop and covered 10km. This will provide access to the lolly and last 1/2 ridge connector and ridge trail for required grooming. The part we did will not likely be ridable until Friday-Sat after in warms up and gets cold again. The snowmobile trail was getting a fresh grooming last night so it should be awesome as well for a ride. The second groomer is 1/2 way along the lolly and the other is at the start. So grab your snowshoes, head out and enjoy the sunshine! I’ll update again tomorrow night regarding ride vs shoe.Johnny in Everything
I’d definitely bring snowshoes….Johnny in Everything
Chris and I got out for a ride last night. Trails are still rideable but a good work out. Super hard packed under 2-3 inches of powder snow so the ride was almost silent. We had to dismount for a few of the bigger hills but the rest was just a steady push and still a great ride. We did the stick, lolly & cut over and did 1/2 of the ridge then bypassed to redo the lolly and back on the stick. Still a great time out there. So we’ll see what happens tonight. If anyone felt like it, it could benefit from a grooming. One groomer is at the start and the other is out about half way around the lolly. Maybe bring Snowshoes tonight incase we get some more snow today so at least we have options. Enjoy!Tyler in Everything
