**Trail Update Thursday PM**
Today’s sun took a toll on trails south of 31 to north of Churchville today. We will leave them open for now, but I would avoid that section, dirt is starting to show in places. There are reports that Churchville is still OK. From Colby street north to TRS Pools was cleared and groomed and the groomer will continue to work the north trails as there is decent snow there. Please keep the trail updates coming and thanks to those that have posted so far. HSF
