Sault Ste. Marie Trail Report – 02/19

SAULT STE. MARIE UPDATE via Sault Ste. Marie Snowmobile Association – 02/19

2/19 pm update- I finally got to get out and ride! Left this morning from the Soo on a fresh groom (thanks Buck!) on trail 8 toward Raco. As we’ve been saying, there is slag rock on 8 popping up, the worst of which is just past 6 mile, so just take it easy there and you’ll be just fine. In Raco, I met up with Raco Dave and several of our club members.

We hit the 889 loop, and then some off trail, forest service roads and two tracks, as this is where the most snow is. I then ran down 480 to 472 and met up with some more of our volunteers, and went down 472 to Rudyard where we had a great lunch at Huck’s Pub & Grill (thanks Jen!) Yes, the road riding in Rudyard where Snowchasers club is unable to groom the ditches is no fun at all, but it was worth it to stop and support Huck’s, as they have supported us!

From here, we rode 472 toward Sullivan Creek Rd. It’s pretty thin until Sullivan Creek road, but I heard it’s great from there west. From here, we took forest service roads back to 480 and those were AWESOME! We saw our newest volunteer, Marc, coming back in the Pisten Bully from his run on 8 between Brimley and Raco. Finished off the ride with another loop up 889 to the overlook, and back to the Soo on trail 8. The northeast side of 889 is getting bumpy from traffic, but I’m sure the Raco crew will straighten it out. 8 is also showing some bumps, but nothing crazy. Trails are definitely thin on 8 more so than anywhere. Again, lots of good snow on the forest service roads as those don’t see the same traffic, or have a rock base.

I saw maybe 20 other sleds out all day. All seemed to be enjoying themselves!

I’ll be updating as we move through the week. Thanks all! ❄️❄️❄️
