Gary’s Grooming Report:

3/13/19
Both loops groomed and riding great.

Dog Sled races this weekend 15th – 17th. The race starts in the Snowmobile parking lot. Look both ways when you cross the snowmobile roads while riding the fatbike loops.

Fat Bike Ride Description

Please Help Keep Trails Open to us by Respecting Trail Etiquette:

  • We share the ski and snowshoe trailhead on the north side of parking lot.
  • Take the snowshoe loop. PLEASE stay off the ski loops. Do not ride on or in the classic tracks.
  • Wide tires 3.8″ or wider.
  • Important: TIRE PRESSURE – based on current conditions use 4 PSI. Your sidewalls should wrinkle like a funny-car tire.
  • If you’re leaving ruts its too soft to ride.
  • Yield to all other users when riding.
  • Meissner Nordic helped us get our trails please help ease trail conflicts and stay off the groomed Nordic trails.

Sno-Park Permits Are Required:

  • A Sno-Park Permit is required when parking in any Oregon State Sno-Park between November 1 and April 30. Pick one up at Pine Mountain or Sunnyside.

Snowmobile Trails:

  • Its is difficult for snowmobile riders to see you. You will hear them way before they see you pull over and let them pass.
  • Stay to the far right of the trail and yield to snowmobiles.

Winter conditions can change hourly… If you’ve ridden this route recently, you can add a report to the discussion area below — or use the status update pull down at the top of the page.

      It was nice to meet you, Gary. Big thanks to you and Steve for grooming!
      Inner loop was riding great. Out loop was a little soft in the middle, but Gary was about to groom it again.

    2. Mark DeJohn says:

      Major suck fest about half way around the Outer Loop. Had to bail to the road to get back.

  8. Derek Manwill says:

    Deep snow drifts in most clearings throughout the loop. Still fun!

  9. Miguel Montaña says:

    Pedaled this morning. Firmly packed snow with a dusting of about 1/2″ on top. Riding very well. Didn’t see any icy spots to speak of.

  10. Gary Meyer says:

    Groomed and riding well

  11. Gary Meyer says:

    Outer loop is now groomed and open for business.

  13. Gary Meyer says:

    12/2/2018
    We have ONLY roughed in the Outer loop.
    There are areas with dirt showing so we can not groom it.

  14. Gary Meyer says:

    3/14/2018
    We are done grooming for the season.

  15. Gary Meyer says:

    3/9/2018
    Freshly groomed.
    May be the last time we groom unless we get more snow.

  16. Derek Manwill says:

    Trails were great in the morning!

  17. Gary Meyer says:

    Trails are soft

  18. Gary Meyer says:

    Still too thin

  19. Gary Meyer says:

    Jan 30th 2018
    Still not enough snow :(

  20. Gary Meyer says:

    Short answer when we say its soft yes it’s too soft to ride.
    Always check the weather. The last few days we have been in an inversion, Bend is cold the mountain is warm. Wanoga has been in the mid 30s durring the day and barely reaching freezing at night.

  21. Erik Santner says:

    So I can’t ride a 27.5 plus bike on Wanoga trails? For some reason I thought the minimum requirements before were 3″ tires.

  22. MOD Brown says:

    Fat Bikes, LOL
