Cabin to Rent at The Enchanted Meadows
Grooming Report March 6th. 2014
Snowmobilers may want to watch for water eroding the trails as reported to me today (Friday March 7). Heavy rain this week with more on the way are a cause for concern.
This week's grooming report, as you might guess, is no grooming due to rain and warm temperatures. I was up on the mountain Wednesday to unplug the SnowCat engine heater to save electricity, and it was raining, 40 degrees. We just have to wait and see if next week is better, weather wise. Temperatures so far, day and night, have been above freezing, and next week's forecast looks like it could be the same.
The 98 SnowCat is still at Wallowa county as theirs is still being repaired, and the SnowCat at Halfway had a driveline break so is broken down as well. The 98 is the northeast Oregon back up Cat when others go down. Looks like it will get used in that capacity this year. They will hopefully get everything fixed this next week.
