45/457 to Newberry was panned last night with a few water holes that showed up south of the McMillan intersection.
We’re going to try and get the east trail into Naubinway tonight but going west still needs to freeze up before we can do anything.
Germfask trail still as locked gates until things freeze back up a little.
It’s early season riding so watch out for the water holes and obstacles and let’s hope winters here to stay for a little while.


Trail Grooming update
As with most Snowmobile Clubs within the area, we are also experiencing a lack of snow and forecasted warming temps, we are therefore forced to suspend grooming operations until we get some much needed snow and colder temps.

Ron was able to make a pass to Newberry and Naubinway last night with pretty good results. We still need more snow and cold but it’s a great start!
Don’t forget to sign up for the Groomer Tracker App, it’s a great way stay updated where the groomers are at and $5 goes back to the club.


The Tuckers are all set and ready to go, we’re thinking tomorrow morning heading towards Newberry and Naubinway (457/45) should the snow continue. This was panned a few days ago with minimal waterholes that we added 50 straw bales to yesterday and seems to be freezing up good now.
Our south trail (457/2) towards Naubinway and Michihistian is going to take a bunch more snow and cold before we’ll be able to get the groomers through but we’ll check them again this weekend and work on starting to freeze them up with sleds.
Germfask (43) still has the gates closed as it’s still really wet, we’re going to try and ride it tomorrow and we’ll let you know if we’re able to open but will take time before the groomers will be able to get through.
Last and definitely the most important is we still have open water on our lakes!!! Yes you’ll see people out with snowmobiles/SXS’ fishing but the lakes not safe everywhere. There are also a bunch of ice heaves from the ice shifting the last few days so please find an alternate route as of now.

We have a new trail coming into the east side of Curtis saving a mile of shoulder riding. It starts just 100 yards east of the gas station and connects with the existing trail by Lilac lane. This trail was made possible by 5 private landowners, donations made in Catherine Custers memory and the Skidoo snow pass grant! This is going to be a great addition to the Curtis Trails!

Happy New Year!
We took advantage of the nice weather and unfortunately no snow today to continue on updating signing and brushing, that is definitely a year around job.
Tomorrow looks like it’s going to be right around freezing for a high with cooler temps following with some snow in the forecast after that, let’s hope by mid next week we’ll have enough snow that we can start working on getting the trails ready to open!!!

No snow to speak of and no rest for the Groomer Association. Groomer, tractor maintenance and continuing trail signing and brushing.


Passing along some trail reminders that our private property owners gates will remain closed until Dec. 15.
Please respect our private property owners who graciously host our snowmobile trails. As you know, snowmobile trails across the state are continuously being lost due to off trail riding and disrespecting the privileges the Snowmobilers and Clubs have been granted.
CAT has invested thousands of dollars for heavy forestry equipment, tons upon tons of trail building materials and hundreds of labor intensive hours into trail reroutes and wet area trail improvements. Even with all of our efforts, we are still reliant upon mother nature doing her part in providing cold temps and snow to work with.
We currently have 2 trails that have on going logging operations:
Trail 45, logging operations start at Old Engadine Rd and runs eastbound for approximately 2 miles.
Trail 2, within the Hiawatha Sportsman Club will have a slight jog / reroute approximately 1/2 mile West of the Millecoquins River bridge. Eastbound Sledders will be required to stop, prior to entering the short reroute jog.

Another busy weekend for the club and had 3 crews out doing trail maintenance.

- Mark and Doug worked on northern section of trail #43 in Germfask.
- Ross working on trail improvement grant, skid steer work and spreading wood chips on the Curtis trail.
- Al, Rich and Ron working on trail #43 reroute in the Wolf Rd. area.
For the most part, all trail maintenance activity will be winding down and eventually ceasing until after the close of the firearm deer season. In the interim, the club's focus will be on the groomer barn and equipment maintenance.
