Groomer Report

Grooming is done for the season

Trail #8 going west of Brimley is the only trail left. The groomers are parked for the season. Trails officially close April 1 but there will be snow on forest roads long after that. We will leave gates open until trail is unrideable.

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 0- 2 inches -Trail is in poor Condition.

Brimley to Raco, Trail #8 –

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

Looks like all the benefits of being a member is on the website link they posted on here! Definitely worth it in my opinion!

We are just starting to pack/groom some of our trails. The dry ones. There is lots of water in the swampy areas in the city, Soo to Kinross, and Kinross to Raco. Ride carefully as rocks and stumps may just under the trail surface. And not bite for skis in corners! We will continue to try to pack those wet trails down, but if we go thru with groomer it will make a wet mess for sleds. Ice may hold a sled but not the groomer. ... See MoreSee Less
