The holiday break means more are heading out to places like the Meadowlark Ski Lodge in the southern Bighorn Mountains for snowmobiling.
"Getting busier every weekend," said Brant Melzer, a snowmobiler from Rozet.
Melzer came down to Ten Sleep with a group for snowmobiling and skiing. He says he's hit the trails throughout the past month and each weekend has brought out more riders as conditions improve.
"Last couple of weeks it's been pretty good. The snow pack is getting up a little bit better. The south side's a little bit lacking, more than the north side is, the Sheridan side. This warm weather ought to help with the base," said Melzer.
For this early in the season the trails are handling better than expected.
"The trails themselves are actually pretty good. The snow pack on the trails is good. There's not a whole lot of vegetation or rocks or gravel, anything sticking out. It's packed down pretty good. Compared to last year it's a lot better. It's still not great, it's not the best, but it's a lot better than last year," said Melzer.
"I would say it's probably better than in the last decade for early season. There's still some thin spots but overall it's probably better than normal," said Charlie Hicks with the local ski patrol.
Hicks says the biggest crowds won't come until February, but there's plenty of good riding for the early birds.
"Cold snow gives you that champagne powder and we got better than normal. We got enough to get a little bit of a base to cover most of the rocks with some light snow on top of it," said Hicks.
Hicks recommends that riders keep an eye out for rocks on the trails since it is still early in the season.
