Attention Racers!

Twin Bears (race start/finish) was not plowed well, so PLEASE, if you can, park at Compeau Trail (come down the trail and stay to the right to get to Twin Bears, approx 1/2mi). There is limited parking w/ 4x4 vehicle at Twin Bears. Sorry, we rent this facility and expected it to be plowed better 😞.

6-8” of new snow and it has been snowing all day.

Roads are not great, please drive safe.
