BJSC Trail Report 1/30/23

At 8:00 a.m. it’s -9 degrees out with sunny skies.

We groomed 15N and 6E last night and 8E, 11, and 15S early this morning. 2W and 8W will be groomed this afternoon. This morning our driver grooming 15S reported the trail as being very rough and did his best to smooth it out.

We have seen moderate to heavy traffic in the area. Last week we had 2,961 sleds go past our trail counter with a season total of 12,002.

And now I have some sad news. Since last Thursday, we have had 4 snowmobile fatalities in our surrounding area. The latest being yesterday on trail 17 in Arbor Vitae. Please slow down and always ride right for your safety and others approaching you.

And another word of caution. There have been numerous reports of off trail riding on state and private property adjacent to our area trails. This has to stop or else we may lose these trails.

Look for an updated report on Wednesday, February 1.
