We've only got a few inches of snow and are not able to groom. In addition, during low snow conditions we typically get a lot of 4WD vehicles driving on our trail system which creates dangerous riding conditions.


Should you decide that you'd like to go out with some friends, we will be providing trail maps for all attendees. If the conditions hold up, you "might" be able to do a ride around Timothy Lake. We do not recommend going off the trail due to low snow conditions.


Convention Update:

Friday night is our vendor party from 4pm to 9pm. Free food, music and door prizes


Saturday morning is our general meeting.


Saturday 10am to 4pm is our vendor show. We've got some awesome vendors that you'll really enjoy.
