We have gone out and assessed many of our trails. It’s not all bad… actually our base is very good still. Its better than the last warm up spell we had a few weeks ago.
So yes, we need more snow.
All the trails are passable. There are sections that are very good, flat, fast. Those sections are outside of town and out of the rough woods sections. Example: Pleasant Pond, Bald Mountain, Breakneck Ridge and Wind Farm Trails are in very good condition with some icy sections.
ITS 87 and 86 have their spots where some dirt is starting to show and lots of ice sections. Use caution.
If you have picks and scratchers I do not see why you can’t go anywhere on our system. I would avoid the Kennebec River Trail steep hill. Icy and a lot of dirt, rocks showing.
Pictures here show the variety of conditions you will encounter. The biggest challenge right now is the rock hard surface and lots of ice. The surface WILL loosen up as traffic gets on it.
With that said we will not be grooming until we get more snow. 1) Because there just isn’t enough material to work with and 2) it’s very icy.
Treat the trails as late season riding but there is still plenty of places to get to from here.
