Shin Pond Village: temps into the mid 40’s wed night; a few inches of new snow and blustery cold temps. Groomed 114S/85S to Whetstone Bridge. *note the Benedicta Club has ceased their grooming operations for the season so if you venture on ITS83 towards Sherman it has not been done in some time now. Also doing 114N/85S/71D to Grand Lake and 85N to 81/85N. The Rockabema club was in 81 from Patten to Shin Pond and continued up 81/85 to make the connection with the Oxbow club. *note Oxbow plans to groom their trails just one more time this week and then plan to be done for the season. Last weekend was a great weekend of riding and were expecting this coming to be just the same. Our grooming efforts will continue as long as the conditions, level of business and surrounding club efforts continue. Get out and soak up the great conditions!
