Opening Day @ the Dunes — April 6!!

Gopher Dunes is ready to make the long-anticipated announcement of our Opening Day for the 2014 Season!  This sure has been one bitter cold winter with record snowfalls and a winter that just wouldn’t end!  Finally a few days ago the guys were able to start pumping water off the low-lying areas, having been delayed by the sub-zero night-time temp’s.  Although our snow is now pretty much gone, it’s the deep ground frost that has caused uncertainties as to when we would be able to open our facility, with the parking fields and lane-ways still very wet and muddy!

Sign-in will begin at 9am and riding will be starting after...
