Sualt Ste. Marie Snowmobile Association

Reported On: Feb 22 2018


Warm during the day and cold at night though  trails still good shape.  Groomers going out late night early morning.  Supposed to get some snow Thursday night late and Saturday night too.

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.


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.
