The Tech Trails

We have made the decision to suspend grooming with the Bombardier due to failing conditions and our need to get moving on and hopefully finish much-needed repairs on it before we start on our many summer projects. However, we will continue to groom using drags and wheelers on the Upper Trails following our Spring schedule of grooming for the weekends and Tuesdays. We will continue grooming for as long as possible and stop when conditions dictate. Please refer to our trails conditions page for daily updates on our trails open and closures.
