After a record, 10 out of 10 season, with 13 full weeks of riding and no trail closures or rain delays …
ALL TRAILS IN THE REGION WILL CLOSE FOR THE SEASON FRIDAY, APRIL 5TH.
Here are some stats from this record year:
- Record snowfall for the area
- A full 13 weeks (91 days) of open trails – the most in well over 10 years
- Not a single day of trail closures due to rain
- Record amount of trail grooming hours
- Record amount of sled traffic in the region
- Record amount of out-of-town touring sledders visiting our region
- An estimated $4M+ spent locally by sledders – a huge economic impact in only a few months
We thank our volunteers – especially those who drive the groomers for so many long hours.
We also thank the many land owners who allow us to use their property for our trails. Without them, the trail system would not be possible.
Thanks also to the OPP SAVE Team for keeping our trails safe.
Please note: 1) Closed trails means CLOSED TRAILS. Most trails use private property. These private landowner properties are NOT accessible during closed conditions.
2) Spring breakup is a very unsafe time of year as lakes, ponds, swamps and creeks start to open up. Ice conditions are unstable and completely unsafe. We encourage everyone to stay off trails and ice during this very unsafe time.
Only 8 months until we start this all over again! We are counting the days!
