Greetings and welcome!

Today Spring won and we hit 62 degrees. Iron Snowshoe has called it a season. Dun-Good, Paul Bunyan, and Red Arrow are open but in poor condition.

I checked the long term forecast one last time and found no hope for a last weekend making 12″ storm. It is time to call it a season..

Thank you everyone for a fun season. I wish that I could have updated more, ridden more, and made more events, but it was a busy winter. I enjoyed meeting everyone at Rapids Resort, and in other places too. I am looking forward to doing it again next year too.

Thank you all. Have a good summer and thank you for visiting!

Greetings and welcome!
It is a hard pill to swallow, but it looks like the season is just about over. There are places to ride off-trail, but the trails that I saw today were about done. There was a good bit of dirt in Wausaukee, and some dark snirt on trails closer to home here in Silver Cliff. The ice layer on side roads took a good beating today and is gone except for in shady spots, where little remains.

We saw mixed clouds and sun and a high of 53. There was a wind that made it feel a little cooler, but the sun was warm and the wind sped up the melting.

Like I said there are riding opportunities on forest road trails and sheltered areas, but most of us are done around here. Heading  north might help. Things change a lot even 10 miles north up by Benson Lake Rd and north to Hwy 8.

Tuesday is supposed to be sunny and 55 and theere are a lot of warm days ahead.

Here  are some pictures from the weekend. Thank you all for visiting!

Morning update-

The weekend was a warm one. We hit 40 on Saturday and 46 on Sunday.

The lowest high temperature that I see in the forecast between now and Friday is 48, And Tuesday and Friday are predicted to see mid 50s.

As of yesterday there were still a lot of trails intact, but the bad spots were getting bigger. There are still end of season riding opportunities if you pick your spots on sheltered trails and forest roads.

There is some cold weather in the forecast, but not until after next weekend.

I will be back tonight after work with some pictures from over the weekend and a better look at how local trails fared.

Have a good Monday and thank you for visiting!
