WIN MAN TRAILS: March 5. We have definitely entered the “freeze,  thaw and try and figure out the best time to groom” season! Expect good conditions in the morning, but temps will rise quickly. We are expecting highs in the upper 30’s on Saturday, and upper 40’s on Sunday.  For the best experience, try to get out early! That being said, our groomers have been working hard to keep the trails in good condition. The ski trails, and the fat bike trails were all groomed last night. Thanks to the snowshoers whose tracks have been grooming the trails for us! With the warm temperatures forecasted, we will be closing the fat bike trails in the afternoons.
