Well we did about 70 miles today between PSF and Greylock. True to his posting on Sled Mass. GroomerGuy was grooming the state Forest. He got the lower trail from the Lake to the State Forest done and the circuit rd done.
Thank you Jim!!
Over all the trails are pretty rough though.
We headed to Greylock to get out of the groomers way.
Riding to Greylock via 90 was bumpy and a bit icy in the usual spots. Greylock was pretty good once you got on the roads..
I would rate the PSF overall as fair..

Just got back from doing a loop from Pontoosuc, up the mall Rd, toward Cheshire, top of Greylock, over to the top mom Jiminy, over the skyline, around the state forest, over to balance rock then back to pontoosuc. Greylock is pretty beat up. Everything from Greylock to the top of Potter is very rough. We ran into the groomer at the top of Potter as he was heading down Potter Mountain rd. From the top of potter all the way back to pontoosuc was pretty good, it we weren't the first ones across it but it was all groomed fairly recently. All in all it was a good ride on trails that I haven't been on in a couple years.

Thank you Jim H. and John G. and everyone else involved....

as reported yesterday by groomer_guy on Sledmass

2/15/17 Update:
We got more snow and we are trying to get it all groomed out for the weekend. We will be out the next couple days in the evening and during the day so be aware of the groomer. At this time the trails range from fair to good. Just be patient, we will have the trails set for the weekend. We are volunteers and most of us work during the day.Thank you and pray for snow.

Another up date fro groomer_guy
Thanks !


2/16/17 Trails update: We have been grooming this week and at this time most trails are rated good to very good. Keep in mind we are still grooming the other trails so you might not find every trail groomed yet. This weekend should be good riding.
