Trail Report By: Diane seneysnowmobiling@gmail.com     of the Seney Snowmobile Association
Seney Trail Report:
DATE:   1/23/2017
BASE:   0-8"
PAST 24 Hrs:   misty and a less than 1" snowfall
CONDITION:   good. soft, wet snow
    GROOMER UPDATE: Must be our luck or something. The case Allegan so generously loaned us has gone down twice already. The first time it was parked between Shingleton and the Bear Trap over night because a hydraulic line blew. Yesterday afternoon the week bearing went out on the drag. All was fixed promptly and we are oh so grateful for the extra piece of equipment.

Conditions: The warm weather for the last few days has made the snow wet and very soft. There are some waters spots and dirty corners close to town. The Case and Tucker are headed out today to tandem groom 431 to get it in shape before the cold weather sets it tonight. Tomorrow they plan to do the same thing to 43 and 8. Tomorrow afternoon a new storm with forecasted lake effect is coming. Heres hoping the equipment holds out and the lake effect drop lots of snow!

Warm Weather Grooming:
Typically they don't groom much above 37 but there are a lot of variables: How much sun. This makes the snow wetter and softer How much wind. Also makes the snow wetter Is there rain involved How much sled traffic Is the temp still dropping below freezing at night. If so they can groom at night.
This is the short version but the trail boss makes the call. And if the operator calls and says the snow is balling up in the drag then he will be directed to return to the barn as this will not produce a safe trail.

VETERAN's Ride: March 11th. Come join us in honoring our vets for the freedoms they have so selflessly provided for us. Be a Vet, Bring a Vet or come and spend a day with a vet. A guided ride through special trails just for the ride, hot lunch on the trail and dinner back in Seney to round out the day. It's a great time.

Trail 43/8 - the water hole that keeps rearing it ugly head is froze again. Don is leaving the stop ahead and stop signs up for now. The water is high there because of the beaver dam and it undermines the trail without notice so the signs stay up til we are sure it's okay.

The detour signs on 43 just outside of town were taken down this past weekend but i'm pretty sure they will go back up soon with this weather.

Logging: Trail 43 south has logging going on for the last 2 miles off of ten curves road that will be going on all winter.
