Snowmobile Trails Receive Forty Inches of Snow for Christmas
PIERRE, S.D. - The Black Hills snowmobile trails received over three feet of snow during the recent storm, and groomers are out in full force to get the trails in riding condition.

"Grooming has been difficult," said Ryan Raynor, trail program specialist in the GFP Division of Parks and Recreation. "This much snow accompanied by high wind has caused deep drifts. Crews are working hard to get the trails ready for snowmobilers."

Great snow conditions exist in the northern Black Hills; however, the southern trail system only received 8 inches of new snow.

Snowmobile trails in eastern South Dakota also received substantial snow cover, but Raynor reminds riders that, like in the Black Hills, it will take a few days for groomers to get caught up.

Current trail conditions can be found at our website and on twitter @SDSnowBHills or @SDSnowEast.
