UPDATE: Effective immediately we have to stop grooming Trail #14 (Game Rd) for timber sales until further notice. Please use caution when riding in that area.
Very busy holiday weekend in the Mercer Area. Groomers have been out full force today working on the trails. Trail #12 to Swamp Creek Road still has not been groomed. Reports are that it continues to be rideable but is rough. Trail #12 between Camp 1 and Midway Bar has been reopened but use caution when riding that area. Reports over this past weekend were that the Mercer trails were all good to very good. Weather forecast right now is for warmer temps and sun. As with most years this is the annual January thaw. In reality it is the true “Indian Summer”. Typically this usually does not cause much damage to the trails and is followed by seasonal temps and snow. So as of now the trail conditions remain good. If conditions change this week we will update this report.
Many thanks to all of you who attended the Mercer Area Sno-Goers Winter Blast. Your support made this years Winter Blast a huge success. Also, thank you to all our members who volunteered their time with setting up, working that day and cleaning up. The time and effort you spent was greatly appreciated. And thanks to all the businesses and individuals who donated to the raffles.
