Comments: New snow has allowed us to start going out to assess conditions and groom a little bit. Full assessment isn't known at this time, but most areas are considered rideable if not 'good' condition.
Grooming: Parts of Elm Creek Park we’re groomed today. the southern half of the trail section will be groomed tonight as well as well as other portions of the system that are groomable. Bottom line is we are going to groom everything we can. The fields will be groomed if they were disced. If they were not, we will go around them. Please use caution where we have not groomed yet.
In general, no grooming will commence until adequate snow base is reached. Based on MN DNR guidelines that is around 8-12" of decent base as well as adequate and safe ground conditions. Early season issues such as wet areas and unfrozen swamps prevent grooming in some cases.
Guidelines: Trails officially open when snowcover reaches 4 inches on or after December 1st and closes by April 1st. It's always a good idea to avoid riding on the trails until after they have been groomed so a nice base can form.
