GROOMING REPORT 1/13/18

The Pearrygin Lake Sno-Park winter trails are provided through a partnership between the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission, the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the dedicated volunteers of Methow Fatbike. Please respect their time and efforts by being courteous to other trail users, respecting the conditions of use for this trail system, and respecting trail use designations and closures. Enjoy!

Weclome to the riders here for the 5th Annual Northwest Fatbike Winter Meetup! The Methow Fatbike volunteer grooming crew has put in around 30 hours of grooming work since Thursday's dump of about 10" of new snow. The trails are beginning to firm up but soft sections will remain. Please help us provide a good trail experience for all users by running low tire pressures (less than 3psi) and regardless of your mode of travel, choosing other trails if you are leaving tracks deeper than 1". Your patience and care of the groomed surface will be rewarded with good conditions. Deep ruts and tracks require multiple grooming passes and extra time and effort to repair. Enjoy the snow and enjoy the trails!

Don't forget, a Washington State Sno-Park permit is required to park in any of the three trailhead parking lots located in Pearrygin Lake State Park. No trail pass is required to use the trails, only for parking. The Sno-Park funds pay for the parking lot plowing and most importantly all the fuel that goes through the snowmobiles we use for grooming.
