Any chance of riding from there Monday?

The Swift Diamond Riders are out of Coleman State Park, and here's their Saturday (March 7) at noon trail report from Facebook. The snofest was held in their area.

SDR Update:

Evening all. Quite a day at the SDR Warming Hut and Coleman State Park with the final day of SnoFest. Very...Very...Busy and we appreciate all that stopped by and showed the local clubs and businesses your support.

As for the SDR Trails, it’s no secret, they got completely smoked with the heavy traffic. We sent 4 groomers out tonight but there is no way that one shift will make miracles. The odds are against us between the traffic that is still out there and the “mealy” type snow we are pushing around. As you are aware we are now through the first week of March, the sun is high and daytime temps quickly become an issue. Please know that from this point on everything with trails and grooming is anybody’s guess and as the old saying goes “We will get what we get”. Rest assured that the SDR will continue to do the very best we can to keep things smooth but there is only so much we can do at times. Next weeks weather pattern would be an example of that.

Hope you enjoyed your weekend and SnoFest.

Thanks for the update, it was helpful. We visited the Mountain View Grand two weeks ago, it looked like this.

Made a reservation to stay this past Sun to Tuesday. Arrived to find this.

Wound up trailering up to Coleman SP on Monday, rode from there. It was 60 degrees there at one point on Monday. Found some great trails, but sometimes we would come around a corner, and it would be mud for 100 - 300 yards, then back out of the sun, and it was OK again. Some areas were great, but I doubt there will be much left by this coming weekend. This was at the aptly named Grandview snack shack.

For an interesting report on snow cover in NH go here: https://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=NWS&issuedby=GYX&product=ESF&format=CI&version=1&glossary=0

The NWS does a flood assessment each spring, and it includes measurement of snow depths in Maine and NH.

 

Baker River has called it a day for the season. Pretty good sign that things are shutting down. Down my way they never really opened up.

It really was a light snow winter. We did good to get in the riding that we did. Biggest storm for us here in central Mass was in November. Could see the lawn for most of the winter. Looks like lots of clubs will be shutting down this week.
