Previous Western Trail Conditions
Route 100 to Summerside was groomed last night and Central groomer has been returned. Route 100 and Puisville Trail was completed overnight. The West Point loop is still in excellent condition.
The West Point loop was groomed overnight as well as Coleman to summerside on route 100.
West 100 Fromm coleman and Puisville trail was groomed over night, conditions are great with the exception of some bare spots. The West Point loop will be groomed once this afternoon then the 2nd trip will be done this evening. East 100 will be done this evening as well, probably only until the power lines by Curran. Please enjoy the rest of the weekend safely, and remember to display your permits.
East 100 was completed this afternoon. Later than expected due to the extra groomer being stuck. Conditions were good with still the odd bare spot. .
Good early morning everyone. West 100 was groomed overnight as well as 203-Puisville trail. Conditions are good but snow was not packy. East 100 was to be groomed by morning by the Central groomer but it was stuck for several hours in Emerald on its way up throughout the night. So fingers crossed it’ll be fit to come west with that groomer and get the railbed opened. Then the West Point loop will be groomed. Tomorrow we will have 2 groomers in the West, but they cannot groom until it’s below zero which will be at nighttime only. I will have more info on the east railbed once morning comes. Please sled safe, don’t drink and drive, and display your permits. Enjoy your weekend.
Hi folks. More snow in the west last night. It’s +1 this afternoon and that’s why the groomer hasn’t moved yet. Once it cools off this evening, then we will begin grooming. Right now the way the snow is with the temp it would all stick in the drag. I will update more later
The West Point loop was groomed overnight, it is in excellent condition. Please- snowmobiles only on groomed trails.
West 100 from Coleman to Tignish, and the Puisville trail we’re groomed last night. Conditions are best from Duvar-West.
FYI there are some stop a heads and stops missing, and nowhere to be found under the snow. So please take caution when approaching road crossings. Someone is going out to replace the ones we can today. If you know of someone taking these signs, please please tell them to stop and pass the word along. .
The West Point Loop was groomed last night, groomer is still out on his way back. There aren’t any stakes across the fields so please stay on the groomed path. Enjoy the day!
Good morning folks. The groomer went west 100 last night to Tignish, he says the trails from Duvar tin tignish are the best. Coleman to Duvar are bare in places. The puisville trail(203) is groomed as well, with plans to do the West Point loop tonight. On the Puisville trail- the groomer had to go beside the Warren Rd as the drifts were as high as the tractor in places so take extra caution. Other than that enjoy the weekend because it maybe the last! I will update on the West Point loop when I know more.
Groomer is finishing its route east on 100, will be complete mid morning. There’s a lot of bare spots so hopefully some of them will be filled in and ready for the storm tonight/tomorrow!
Good morning folks. The Groomer went west on 100 last night to Tignish, should be back to Coleman around 8-8:30. It’s not a perfect job but it’s smoothed our not too bad. The snow is still sticky. When it cools off tonight hopefully groomer will be going east on 100 as far as conditions allow.
Groomer went out tonight but had to return not far after beginning, the snow was lumping and making a mess. Will try again tomorrow night weather permitting. .
Good evening Folks! What a day!! If you’re out tonight, the groomer is currently on the West Point loop so watch out for that! The trails are hard packed and smooth, a couple bare spots.. the loops are in good condition. I recommend scratchers if you’re out.. however I was out all day without them and did just fine. Enjoy tomorrow, -3 and sun I believe? Then a couple days of above zero and maybe some rain :( so once again, be cautious for the groomer tonight. It’ll probably be the last time it moves until we get some new snow. Fingers crossed!! .
Groomer went to tignish on 100 last night and is on Puisville trail right now heading back to Coleman, then will go East on 100, and once returned then do the West Point Loop this evening. Conditions are smooth and packed, with a few bare spots on rail bed.
The West Point loop was groomed last night but the groomer is currently stuck in the “Klondike” awaiting removal which will be late morning/early afternoon so if you are riding through this area(Duvar end of the loop) please be careful for the groomer if it’s still there and the problem area.
Groomer leaving Coleman heading west on 100 and will attempt the puisville trail if the snow permits. When it returns from that run it will be heading east as far conditions allow. Please place your permit on your snowmobile where it’s visible and enjoy. Remember the PEISA has zero tolerance for alcohol.
Hi folks. Due to the mild temperature and rain/freezing rain in the forecast last night the groomer did not move. Another mild day today at +4ish. Hoping for a cold night tonight so we can do some grooming(if the snow holds up after the rain/fog/mild temps). Temperatures need to be at the very least -5 to -7. I’ll post an update this evening hopefully. I can’t speak for conditions yesterday as I was not out, but from what I’ve gathered, some places are beat up, some gravel coming through in spots. Traffic was heavy this weekend plus we got a lot of fresh snow overnight Saturday. Just keep in mind that driving in the middle chews up trails faster than keeping to the right. Stay tuned folks.
Good Morning! The groomer is just about finished of the East 100 run, the trails are in excellent condition from Tignish to Summerside(Groomer turned at North Dr where the bypass enters the fields) It appears we MAY dodge the heavy rain forecast, but still get a couple mms.. fingers crossed! One more good snowfall would pretty much allow us to groom our loops.
Anticipating heavy traffic this weekend weather permitting, so ride safely, sober, make sure your pass is visible on your sled and keep to the right of the trail. Happy trails!!
West 100 is complete, and the groomer is leaving for East 100 after refuel. Trail conditions Coleman-west are great. The groomer will go as Far East to Summerside as snow conditions allow. If you’re out tonight please watch for the groomer lights. Keep to the right of the trail to help maintain conditions. Fingers crossed we dodge the rain tomorrow!
Groomer on it’s way west on 100. As of 4:30 was in Duvar.
The groomer left Coleman on 100 at 4:30pm heading west with the compactor. The plan is to send the groomer and the drag tomorrow night once some frost gets into the snow and it will set up better, right now the snow is fresh and powder-y especially in the west and some sections have ice patches beneath it. The compactor will pack snow in the center and leave fresh snow to each side for when the drag goes and wings it in to smooth and pack it down. It's going to get cooler tonight so that will be an advantage for when the drag goes. Please put your pass on your machine so that it's visible, be cautious if you meet the groomer and sled safe. Also, please do not spin up the snow exposing the gravel/ice.
Groomer is gone East 100 with the compactor as far as he can go(probably Miscouche) then will go west 100. If you’re out, watch for the groomer and be cautious of any ice patches under the fresh snow! OH- and fingers crossed for more!!
Groomer went east on 100 from Coleman with the compactor and will go west when that route is completed. Just breaking down banks, several bare spots. A
The railbed is groomed but extremely hard and some places are slippery. If you’re out ride carefully, there’s not much snow for cooling.
Groomer is gone west on 100 as of 6am, then will go east 100 until snow conditions deteriorate. Trails are not optimal, a lot of bare spots from the wind.. Ride safe and keep warm if you’re out this weekend as it’s a chilly one!! .
Route 100 from Tignish to Conway was groomed overnight. With heavy traffic all weekend trail conditions aren’t great, but if we keep to the right they will last longer. Hopefully some snow coming soon. Happy New Year, safe riding! ..
East100 to Miscouche was groomed overnight after the West 100 run. Trail conditions are good but frequent icey patches in the open areas. Enjoy and ride safe!
Groomer has left Coleman heading West on route 100. Watch for flashing lights if you’re out! Safe & Happy riding.
Groomer left from Coleman heading west on 100 about 4:30pm, will go east 100 once it returns as far as snow permits. There are bare/icey spots on railbed in several areas between Coleman and Elmsdale so take extra precaution. It is very windy tonight and expected tomorrow as well, so trail conditions will most likely quickly deteriorate overnight. Please ride cautiously and watch for flashing lights. Be safe and enjoy the first ride of 17/18 season!!
