 E-bikes NOT allowed on Wanoga: 3 PSI

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.

      Thank you Groom Crew!!!!

    2. Miguel Montaña says:

      Wind blown snow has buried the wonderful grooming work.

    3. Miguel Montaña says:

      Got pretty buried in wind blown snow. Might be rideable with 5.05” tires on 100 mm rims by an 80 lb rider.

    4. Brian Thomas Coop says:

      A couple inches of post groom freshies, a couple snowshoers, plus some fresh fatty tracks have 3psi running great on 1/7/23.

    5. William Priest says:

      Recently groomed and ready to ride. Snow in good condition. Stay in the middle of the trail and watch for sudden turns. I saw many tire tracks where people over shot the turn and blew out the trail. Slow down. Also, when you find an off chamber turn, ride up on the high side. Don’t ride in the deep soft ruts. Reminder that eBikes are not allowed on these trails. I saw 2 riders out there today and couldn’t catch them to talk about proper etiquette.

    6. Grace Ogawa says:

      Rode it the morning of Feb 2 and it’s really in excellent condition considering. Swoops was freshly groomed and riding well, too! Still need to be careful of thin-crust areas and hidden postholes, as always.

    7. Grace Ogawa says:

      Beautiful to ride morning of Jan 9 (Sunday). Definitely needs a gentle touch in places so it’s in great condition for taking it easy and enjoying the volcano views. Swoops has not been groomed since the storm. Gary tells me it was an 8 hour day just getting the main loops back.

      Toss a coin to your groomers, they’re doing amazing work.

    8. Miguel Montaña says:

      Another Gary Meyer in-the-wild, on-a bike-sighting. Dusting of fresh snow on firm and smooth groomed snow. Conditions were pretty perfect. Didn’t notice ice. But I’d be mindful of it in the typical locations.

    9. Grace Ogawa says:

      So this is technically ridable but you want LOW PSI (like 3 or lower) and ride delicately… that being said, it was great fun! A few people have been on it with too much air and left the some divots on the east (far) end but it’s 80% gorgeous. Just… delicate.

    10. Miguel Montaña says:

      Thank you so much groomers for your work. Trail is in exceptionally rideable condition given how much new snow we’ve received. So if you see this and are wondering if it’s worth going out on Thursday morning, by all means yes. It will all likely get buried tomorrow night.

    11. Miguel Montaña says:

      Firm fast and flowy. Enjoyed seeing Gary Meyer in the wild, on a bike and not grooming. Thanks!

    12. Miguel Montaña says:

      Inch or two of fresh on firm base. Swoops has drifted unridable snow for about 30′. The rest was soft but two bikes, two loops, ridden in decently.

    13. Miguel Montaña says:

      Was riding great this morning. Snow was accumulating but enough riders circling it kept getting ridden in. SWOOPS aka WOFGB was lost in drifted snow.

    14. Grace Ogawa says:

      Great job groomers! Was riding really well this morning. The extra snow has given the trails more cushion but they’re also a bit slidier. Definitely air down those tires to 3 PSI or less, and be gentle on the corners.

    15. Miguel Montaña says:

      1” fresh on gorgeous base. Perfect.

    16. Grace Ogawa says:

      Riding really well today! 3 PSI for 3 PSI is the sweet spot.

      1. Bonnie Phippen says:

        Just got off 3PSI. A couple was coming off it as we started (3 of us). So followed their tracks as it snowed a wet snow. But rideable! If temps keep lowering maybe could ride it this aft, but if not it will be too heavy of snow my guess. — Oops clicked wrong reply button so this is not chronological.

    17. Grace Ogawa says:

      Met a guy out here who said “this is a postcard day!” and I think that’s about the sum of it. Great riding!

    18. Miguel Montaña says:

      Thanks Groom Crew! Very well packed. No ice.

    19. Miguel Montaña says:

      3 PSI was perfect today. Thanks Groom Crew!

    20. Gary Meyer says:

      WOOHOO! What fun it is to ride again!

    21. Gary Meyer says:

      3-PSI is still under DEEP SNOW

    22. Gary Meyer says:

      Winter Storm!
      White out conditions at Wanoga.
      3-PSI is gone until this storm passes.
      Expect VERY soft conditions and deep drifts on Outer Loop

    23. Gary Meyer says:

      Steve groomed both loops.

      I’ll hit it again tomorrow.

    24. Miguel Montaña says:

      Was perfect this morning. Firmly packed tread. Light dust of powder on top.

    25. Gary Meyer says:

      Packed and riding well

    26. Gary Meyer says:

      Freshly groomed.
      May be the last time we groom unless we get more snow.

    27. Derek Manwill says:

      Trails were great in the morning!

    28. Gary Meyer says:

      3/7/2018 Outer loop and 3-PSI were ripping fast this morning. When the sun burns through it will get soft.

    29. Gary Meyer says:

      Trails did not set well and are soft
