3/24/17: Storm Stella was a blessing after the big meltdown of late Feb.and early March. Well, today was the best chance to carry that blessing forward but it became a failure. Except for the lake ice, a lot of excellent riding was realized! There still may be some awesome areas of snow left in the woods,  but getting to them is the problem. The feeder trails are becoming rock and mud bound so it leaves the club no choice but to close the trails. Barring a miracle of an early spring blizzard, it looks like the season is over. Thank you for your patience, your membership, and your support! Please come to the meeting on 3/26 at 9am at the Tannery Road clubhouse in Otis to show your ideas, enthusiasm, and support for the next season!

3/17/17: Otis received 16-20 inches of snow. Some trails are open and riding is limited. This weather flip-flop caught everyone off guard. The gate at Rt 23, Trail 7 is closed because the swamp crossing is not safe! Stay off the lake ice! Alan road gate is open. No link to October Mtn. without Greenwater ice. There are reports of downed trees. Watch out for an abandoned ATV on Crossover Trail. Beware of the usual hidden rocks and objects.

3/14/17 Snowing heavily in Otis. 16″+ at 2pm. 100% chance until 8pm. Should reach 2 feet The trails are open with these strong warnings. 1. STAY OFF ANY ICE. The Rez and Big Ponds ice is extremely thin, if frozen at all. No connection to October with thin ice on Greenwater pond. 2. Expect windfalls and mudholes. 3. FRT gate at Alan Rd bridge will reopen. 4. There is no base. Watch out for hidden rocks and objects.  5. No grooming- yet.Wink

Saturday 02-18-2017 Trail Report:

It was a great sunny day in the Otis area and the trails held up fairly well with riding conditions reported as good to Excellent. Many riders said they even rode to October Mountain State Forest. Local enforcement and state law enforcement we’re out greeting snowmobilers and the local vendors were selling a numbers of trail passes. Hopefully Mother Nature will be kind to us and stay off turning up the thermostat. We will see what this week brings and hope that we have more snow in the forecast.

Otis received a nearly two feet of snow on a frozen base. Many trails are broken and grooming is in progress. Still, the warmer than average base conditions result in some  hidden rocks, objects, and water bars. The lake ice conditions are poor so use best judgement and by all means stay away from Kibbe Point. If in doubt, stay off the ice!Laugh

Thanks to the thousands of viewers for landing here for the KTSR trail report. Another lame winter is upon us, but it seems to have more potential than last year’s total no-snow-show. Opening and closing trails has become a daily eventFrownand reporting it here and on the KTSR website is time consuming. So until trail conditions are worthy of posting here, I will keep the Knox Trail report as current as I can. Go there! Keep thinking snow!

12/20/16  Trails are open but riding is very limited. Use extreme caution. Warming temperatures may result in trails closing. Otis State Forest has been groomed. Stay off the ice. IT’S NOT SAFE!
