Pittsburg Ridge Runners News & Trail Report – 1/25/23

Hello Snowmobilers,

Most of our trail system is now open.

We received GREAT NEWS last week that the Perry Stream trails – 140 /141 /142 /147 are OPEN!

It turns out there will not be any logging happening after all.

Unfortunately our 2023 Trail Maps have been printed showing those trails as being closed.

Here’s a snap shot of those trails from the 2022 Trail Map.

Hopefully you can add them to your new 2023 Trail Map.

The groomers will continue daytime grooming for the next 5 days, then transition to night grooming, which is the preferred way to groom trails.

Night grooming gives the trails the needed time to setup, and they holdup much longer the next day.

  • Trails north of Magalloway Rd, the East side and West side trails are in good condition with good snow cover.
  • Trails south of Magalloway Road, to the Back Lake hub area are in good to fair condition.
  • Corridor 20 south from Pittsburg village to Canaan VT is OPEN, ungroomed, but track packed and passable. Needs more snow.
  • Trail 142 north & south of the Route 3, Lake Francis boat ramp, and Trail 139 along side First Connecticut Lake and Route 3, are closed due to high water.

Trail updates will be posted on Facebook and on our website. Watch for Jason Busfield’s trailside videos on Facebook.

Please take it easy out there.

Watch out for the groomers, water bars, rocks and icy corners.

A snowstorm is moving in later tonight with possibly 6 to 8 inches of snow. Then next weeks forecast is looking very snowy.

Yeah! Pittsburg Flurries!
