Groomer Report

Grooming is done for the season

with the foot of snow Monday forest service roads and most trails should have rideable snow this weekend.

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.

Follow us on facebook too

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.
