Hoping for more snow? So are the members of the Sangre Snowrunners Snowmobile Club. Just over a dozen cheerful members of this group met January 3rd at Pizza Ranch in Pueblo to discuss snow and trail conditions. President Lester Lewis gave a report on the conditions on the Ophir Creek Trail System. He and a small group had been checking out the trail, putting out map boards, and working on grooming it on January 1st & 2nd. He reported the road is plowed down low, but good snow conditions on top and at the south end of the snow slide. With the weather changing to higher temperatures, the snow is not expected to last long.

The Snowrunners are one of 38 snowmobile clubs in Colorado which operate under the Colorado Snowmobile Association. The Snowrunners originally started in Westcliffe in 1984. At that time Pueblo also had a separate snowmobile club, but the Westcliffe club had the grooming contract for the trails and did most of the work to prepare the trails. When the Pueblo club started to shrink in membership, the two clubs combined and kept the Forest Service special use permit and grooming contract from the Westcliffe Club.
