There has never been a better time to Ride the Moose. All trails were groomed last week also some grooming will start again tomorrow. There is a packed base of 12-24 inches on most trails outside the park and off trail in the park there is at least three feet or more in most places. Our weather forecast is showing below freezing temperatures well into next weekend. Our trails will close for sure on March 31st. There could be some hazzards in the ditches going in and out of the different communities as the towns and RM's clear culverts and drainage areas.
