Greater Forks Area Snowmobile Trail Conditions
Coburn Summit Riders trail report 2/23/17
This week’s warm weather certainly isn’t what any of us would like to see but our trails should weather it just fine. We sent a few groomers last night with mixed results as the temps were too warm to groom effectively. The trails are holding up surprisingly well and grooming operations will be a day to day decision based on temps. We are not asking riders to stay off the trails but ask that everyone takes it easy to help keep together what we have.
ITS 89 will have a route change starting Monday. The landowner will be plowing a section of the trail where it meets ITS 86 and we don’t want to share the plowed road. The weather will dictate what day we open the new section up and it appears that will be Sunday. We will update when it happens. PLEASE DO NOT RIDE ON PLOWED ROADS!
We went up with the groomer on Tuesday and it’s been a perfect couple of days for everyone to enjoy it.
I have attached a great picture Artie Talbot shared from the Coburn Summit last evening.
Our annual Poker Run is on for this Saturday so please come out and support the club.
