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.
