Checkout the conditions on Minnesota Highway 6 south of Emily! This link will take you to the Minnesota Department of Transportation's camera showing Highway 6. The State updates the images several times per hour; the camera is located just south of Emily. Note: you can't see much at night!!
We received about 2 inches of snow last night; it's a start, but we don't have enough yet to begin grooming operations. Temperatures have been colder this last week, which should help freeze up the swamps that some of our trails run through. Some of the area lakes still have open water. The current forecast is for daytime temperatures to be in the low to mid 20's this week, with some additional snow possible next Friday.
SUNDAY DECEMBER 3, 2017 UPDATE
The club has been working to get the trails brushed out, fallen trees removed, and equipment readied in anticipation of this riding season. We did have a couple of decent snowfalls in November, and many of the area lakes had frozen over. But the recent mild weather has melted the snow, and some of the lakes are starting to open up again. We have not been able to get our equipment into some trail areas that are surrounded by swamps, and we will need some cold weather before those swamps are frozen enough to handle the weight of the equipment. Once we get enough snow/cold weather to begin grooming, we will post the condition of the trails here on at least a weekly basis, so stay tuned!
