The warm temps and rain gave way to dangerous ice, with exposed rocks, bare areas, and open water bars. The Hathaway trail 100F-3 North to Somerset is not recommended. 100 S to Hogback is very rough. The groomers could not go out – not much loose snow to even find to gather into the trails. It’s hard to even keep your sled cool and tracks lubricated. Watch out for overheating!
