Groomer Report

The city trail and trail #8 going west are the only trails left that are being groomed and rideable they may make it to the weekend at least west of Brimley

We have a new plowed parking area at the beginning of trail #8 under the International Bridge, which now has an all season porta John. Make sure you lock your vehicles and trailers.

If you are staying in the Sault please look at our list of supporters on our web page and give them your business. Please do that in all towns you visit. The grooming entities are all made up of volunteers who want you to support those who support us!!!!!!

Remember trail base is the amount of snow between your track and the ground below not the amount of fluff piled up in the woods. 10 inches of snow compresses to less then a inch on the trail.

Base 1 – 3 inches -Trail is in fair Condition.

Brimley to Raco, Trail #8 –

Base 1 – 4 inches -Trail is in fair to good Condition.

I hope all of you can laugh at this as much as I did. People who don't belong to clubs generally don't get it. They don't understand what it takes to have good trails. They can mostly just complain when they aren't up to their standards. Think about it. Hope your riding season is all you are hoping it will be.

Some crappy temps out there right now. Hovering just below freezing with some drizzle. And daytime temps are to be 35. Not what we need to get swamps frozen and keep the snow we got. Looks that way all week. 😞 ... See MoreSee Less
