Trail Report for Shirley Bog Trail Busters
February 28, 2021
Grooming on a regular basis.  With the unpredictable weather we will have to adjust the grooming accordingly.
Several near misses on the trails this week.  A dog team was nearly hit and a couple of sleds got a close up look at the front of the groomer.
 Please slow down, ride on your side of the trail and respect others that are using the trails.

Update:  February 26, 2021
Entire trail system was groomed today.

Finally enough snow, and more expected, to groom on a regular basis. 
 The cold weather has helped set up the trails.  Have heard multiple comments on how good the trails are.  
The Bypass Trail is groomed nightly as it is being traveled hard. 
 The Draper Road was groomed Friday night.  
The entire trail over to ITS 86 is normally groomed on Wednesday's, depending on the weather.

When approaching a groomer wait for the operator to signal that it is safe to pass.
Remember that these are multi use trails, respect others that are using them.

Trails are bony - we need more snow.  According to the forecast we will be getting snow this week.  They are predicting 10" to 12" which will be a big help.
The landowner along the Clouse Allen Road has decided not to harvest that area this winter so we will be able to use it.  
The club sled groomer went out on Friday (01/29).  After the snow expected this week we will be able to take out our new big groomer. 
 As always, use caution on the trails.

Updated January 24, 2021
We have enough snow to snowmobile. Most signage is out. We have started grooming as have the Connector clubs.  All our trails were groomed Friday (01/22/21).  The Draper Road Trail has a couple of wash outs, passable but approach with caution.  Snowmobile trails are multi use trails, Do watch out for Sled Dogs and skiers on the trails. Please slow down when approaching them. As always, respect landowners property - carry in, carry out.

We have had one good storm in December. Two weeks later we are still cleaning up the trails from this heavy wet snowstorm. We unfortunately have had only a dusting every few days. Trails are not quiet rideable for lack of snow. Keep posted for real trail conditions. Soon we hope!

First 1/4 inch of snow in the Moosehead region! Trail reports coming soon!
e base of snow. The trails are getting really heavy use and we are having a difficult time keeping up the grooming. We are still waiting for parts for our track truck. We are hoping the heavy amount of traffic dies down in the evenings and we will make progress in getting our trails back in shape. Drive safe and slow down!
