Hornbeck Trails conditions Friday, March 23, 2018:  We have received 2 cms new snow in the past week.  The Hornbeck Trails will all be groomed and track set tomorrow morning.  Good conditions should hold up through the weekend, but warm temperatures forecast for next week should return us to daily freeze/thaw cycles typical of Spring.

The Hornbeck Trails are mostly snow-covered, and we have received a couple of centimeters of new snow over the past 24 hours.  A bridge on the trails, on the Lambert Road 1/2 km from the trailhead, was replaced yesterday.  The trails around the bridge are rough from heavy equipment activity, and skiers should approach with caution and take their skis off to cross it.  Otherwise, the trails are mostly skiable although not groomed and trackset since two weeks ago.  With the warm weather, bare spots are starting to spread across the trails in places – watch out for them.  The parking lot will be locked, but there is room to park three or four vehicles outside the gate.  No more grooming is planned.
