Looks like we may finally be in for a decent snowfall! We will be actively checking conditions and will open trails IF and when conditions allow. Please be patient as we collect reports from across our trail system to confirm the areas that are good to go. The first opening can a little longer as we have no base and haven’t been able to run groomers. Please check here for status, if you don’t see an open post, they are CLOSED. Thanks. HSF ...
