Pittsburg NH Snowmobile Trail Report, February 9th, 2016
***”Great job on the trails we did 165 miles today of great riding thanks for all the hard work.” 2/8/2016 – Nick S.
The northern trails received 2 to 3 inches of new snow last Saturday, and left about one inch of snow cover in the Back Lake area which has improved lubrication for riding. Trails are being groomed and reports are that the conditions on the northern trails are great to excellent. Cooler temps are here and we received a couple of inches last night in the Back Lake area and probably more on the northern trails. Snow showers are expected to continue daily this week.
The trails in the southern area of town are poor.
Trails from First Connecticut Lake to Second Connecticut Lake are fair.
This weeks added snow will improve these conditions. Stay tuned for Thursday’s trail report.
Trail 141 is closed temporarily from Dorman’s gas to Young’s Store.
“Found Melvin today! Northern trails were better than expected.” 2/6/2016 Garrett M.
Riders were still having fun with Melvin this past weekend in the Burg. Where will he be next???
Happy trails and ride safely.
