Total snowfall since December 15th=22″, compacted base on trail 4-7″. Snow depth in the woods 12-16″. Overall the trails have very good coverage, a few rough spots on the marsh/lake crossings to use caution, especially on Bullhead trail. Total snowfall since December 1st, 28″. Total snowfall since November 20th= 30″. We had a warm spell that melted most of the snow from November 20th and December 1st other than the north facing areas.
