February 18, 2021

Had some great riding in the Columbia/Colebrook/Stratford/Groveton/Millsfield/Berlin area this past weekend.  Was surprised that there wasn’t more traffic out there actually.  Thanks to all the groomers for their hard work!



Please check here for events happening this weekend.

The next trail condition report is expected to be out Thursday, February 18th.  

This report is “as of the above date”.  Trail conditions change depending on weather and use.  If you have concerns about possible condition changes, contact the local club before you go out.  This report’s rating system:
  • Great - Trail has a really good base, groomed flat with solid snow that should hold up to traffic.
  • Good - Trail is flat with a good base, there may be ice underneath, and while groomed snow could become a bit mushy.
  • Moderate - Trail has decent riding, but may have bare spots, ice, or rough sections.
  • Marginal - Trail is passable, but may have thin snow, open or partially filled water bars, bare spots, ice, or trees down.
