Snow again! 5-9 cm of snow fell overnight and Sunday morning, adding to the 13mm of rain that fell on Saturday. All trails are wet. The trails are soft, with puddles and muddy areas, so they are easily impacted by tire ruts or foot and hoof prints. Shaded areas that were groomed for XC skiing or fat-biking in the winter still have a lot of snow and ice patches, which are melting slowly and adding more water to the trails. Please give the trails a day or two to dry out after any precipitation. Be aware of the trail conditions and watch your own impact. If you are leaving ruts or prints, you are damaging the trails. And do not walk on vegetation beside a muddy trail, because you are simply widening the trail and creating unwanted trail braiding. Many trails will be good to go with a few sunny, dry days after these rains stop.
