Here we go!! Welcome to pre-season 22/23. Our grooming team has been out this week, snowmobile packing trails at County Line. Priority right now is prepping the snow to form a solid base for the next storms. The first storm of the year blew down a lot of trees — Groomer Dave, Gordie and Eric have removed more than two dozen fallen trees so far.
We are going to ease into grooming operations with some snowmobile grooming on Friday, October 28. The plan is to get on Dog Loop, DL Connector, Tower, Kannah, Vista Ridge, Lions, Winslow and Sunset. Please note that Scales Lake Road is Closed for now. (Available to us Nov 15.)
Coverage is variable. Please be aware of some Water Hazards on Tower, Scales Glade, Vista Valley, Arroyo, and a small portion of Lions. There is not quite enough snow to cover natural hazards in some places but particularly on Overlook, North side of Sunset and Tower under the Powerlines.
SAVE YOUR SEASON! Ease into it. Get those ski muscles re-introduced and don’t go at it hard right out of the gate. Refer to the map for a better visual of what’s going on. Enjoy this early snow on the Grand Mesa!
It is still hunting season so beware that there may be hunters out. Our season officially starts Nov 15 and we must share the trails until then. Please be courteous toward other trail users.
