2-23-2021 Trail StatusALL trails CLOSED as of 9 PM 2/23. The warm temperatures and rain have taken their toll. While there certainly are parts that are still good, we have many areas that are shot. Hopefully cold and snow returns and there is some base left to build on. Thanks! HSF ... See MoreSee Less

2-22-2021 Trail StatusWe had an extremely busy weekend on our trail system! We have over 30 hours of grooming between Saturday and Sunday, but that couldn't keep up with the traffic in several areas. We are currently down to one groomer, but even if we were running two, we would have struggled to keep up with the volume of riders. With the current and forecast temperatures, we will not be grooming until temps are below freezing as it will just make things worse. Forecast doesn't look good for the next week or two, stay tuned as we may have to shut them down. Thanks, HSF ... See MoreSee Less

To whom it may concern, I see some complaints on here about riders going off trail, I too am a land owner with trails on my property and almost everyday this past week I’ve seen snowmobiles in places where they don’t belong, I very respectfully ask you to please urge your riders to stay on the marked trails, and not to take shortcuts. I’ve seen riders cutting through an area close to where some farm equipment is stored some of which my not be visible because of the snow. I only say this out a concern for the general safety of all your riders. Knowing where things are on my property I’d hate to see someone get caught up in things hidden by the snow. Thank you. ...
