TRAIL REPORT

Sualt Ste. Marie Snowmobile Association

March 18th 2018

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.  The sun is melting a little bit of snow every day and areas in the open will develop bare spots or corners

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.
