Trail Report: Friday, January 17, 2020

Minnesota and North Dakota are experiencing snow and blowing snow. It is predicted 5-9 inches of new snow will blanket the area today through tomorrow.  This is in addition to the 6+ inches of snow received earlier in the week.  Groomers were out all week and riders are reporting excellent trail conditions.

Caution: The club received a report of an approximate 5-mile portion of a trail that has been plowed. The area is located west of Itasca State Park on Trail 33 going south from Highway 113 to intersection F58 to F57 and east 2 miles on Trail 18. Today's snowfall should help make this area easier to travel. Please use caution when riding this portion of the trail.

Reminder: USXC Heartland 200 Race is Saturday and Sunday, January 18-19! Portions of eastern trails will be closed on Saturday and Sunday through late afternoon each day. Check out the race route map shown on January 14 trail report. Please plan to use alternate trails during these time periods. Groomers will be out grooming the race route trails after the race.

 

Thank you to our dedicated groomers for the long hours spent making the FRSC trails an outstanding and enjoyable trail system in our winter wonderland!

Trail Report: Tuesday, January 14, 2020

The area received 3+ inches of snow Monday night to Tuesday morning. Our groomers have been out on the trails the last couple of days. Here is the tentative grooming schedule for this week.

The weather forecast is predicting snowfall accumulations for tonight and Wednesday in the range of 3-5 inches. Heavier snowfall is predicted for Friday and Saturday.

With the upcoming snowfall, it is usually the club's practice to groom in the woods first, and then the ditches and open areas last (to allow for the plows to go through and people to clear their driveways). This week they will do what they can and also prepare to groom in conjunction with the USXC race.

 

USXC Heartland 200 Race - Saturday and Sunday, January 18-19! Join the excitement and watch the race along the route! Starting Wednesday, race route markers are being posted on the trails. FRSC trails will be open through Friday. Portions of our trails will be closed on Saturday and Sunday until early afternoon and open again later in the afternoon. Please refer to the race route map and plan your snowmobile rides accordingly.

Pinehurst Stop1

On January 23 and 24, the Forest Riders Snowmobile Club held the 2nd Annual Forest Riders Snowmobile Club Ride for Hospice. Riders left the Two Inlets Country Store on Saturday at noon on their snowmobiles riding the groomed trails to the Shooting Star Casino & Hotel in Mahnomen. The club had hoped to raise more than last year’s $1,000 to benefit CHI St. Joseph’s Health Hospice Care. At the end of the ride, the club received over $3,000!

These donations make a difference to patients, families of loved ones facing this difficult stage of life. Community support ensures specialized quality hospice care close to home with an emphasis on comfort and dignity.

The club would like to thank everyone that rode either by snowmobile or drove support vehicles, and most importantly the parties that donated to this great cause! We are looking forward to the 3rd Annual Ride for Hospice in 2017!
