GROOMING REPORT 3/17/19

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 trail groomers 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!

This weekend marks the end of grooming operations for the season. It's been an amazing winter and the grooming crew thanks you for your support of the trails and the Sno-Park program. This trail system is a labor of love for us and its rewarding to see its use increase each year. We got out last night and groomed many of the trails in Pearrygin Lake State Park and all of the trails on Lloyd Ranch. Pearrygin Lake State Park staff will begin plowing the campgrounds on Monday the 18th to prepare for upcoming camping season. Please be sensitive to any soft sections of groomed trail you encounter (especially as temperatures warm in the afternoons) and choose other trails or lower your tire pressure if leaving tracks deeper than 1". Although grooming is ending, feel free to enjoy the trails as long as the snow lasts. -Dave, Doug, Joe, Steve, and Alex (aka the Methow Fatbike grooming crew)

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 and makes this trail system possible. No trail pass is required to use the trails, only for parking. The Sno-Park funds pay for the plowing of trailhead parking, grooming equipment and maintenance, grooming staff, and fuel for the snowmobiles we use for grooming.
