Post Poker Run Grooming Report
As of February 21st…….
The Sumpter Valley Blue Mountain Snowmobile Club Grooming Crew has put about 230 miles on the Snocat this past week while grooming most of the local trails in the area such as Greenhorn, Black Mountain/Skyline area, Blue Springs, and the Bourne area.
The groomer has been busy this past week,
working mostly on the trails higher up.
There should be some good riding out on the trail this weekend…..looks like we are in our typical early spring weather pattern of cold nights and warm days.
Riders should be ready to cross bare roads. Sumpter streets are deeply rutted and partially bare.
So far this season, the Grooming Crew has only been able to log about 550 miles on the Snocat…...all in the month of February.
The groomer stayed higher up on the trails during the poker run the weather turned warmer but after they were done, approx. 10 inches of new snow fell.
See the current weather forecast for Sumpter here.
Reports from riders say that conditions above Granite at Olive Lake and on over to Anthony Lakes are good. Riders can “trailer” up to Freemont Power Plant at Granite and ride from there. The ride to Granite from Sumpter is only a few minutes…

“The poker run was one of the best and there is still plenty of snow on the trails.” Jim Sheller, Grooming Chairman

You may ride the snowmobile trails all winter and never see the groomer……….but when you do meet the Tucker Snocat Groomer, you’ll know it! Please be careful out there -
Have a Safe Ride!
