Previous Island 4 Trail Conditions
It cooled off enough last night to send the groomer out for a little tour. We groomed from the 104 rail bed in Vernon River, the 217 through Greenfield and up the 103 rail bed to Pisquid River. On the trip back down, the groomer went up the 311 through Lorne Valley and back to home base on the 104 rail bed.
Groomer has just finished after being on the move for approximate 36 hours straight.
Yesterday, two passes were made on the 104 rail bed from Vernon River to Murray River, then groomed the 217 through Greenfield and up the 221 to Ashton. After completing two passes on the 221, the groomer went into Georgetown and Montague on the rail bed, then back to Pisquid river on the 103 completing two passes on the entire 103 rail bed and making four passes from New Perth to Pisquid in the last day and a half. Hope the cold weather sticks around and everyone has a great weekend snowmobiling!
Groomer went out yesterday once the temperature dropped. Left home base on the 104 rail bed and went to Pisquid on the 103 rail bed after making a single pass in Greenfield on the 217.
On the way back from Pisquid, the groomer went up the 311 through Lorne Valley and back, completing two passes on the 311. From there, the groomer went to Murray Harbour on the 305 County Line trail and back up to Greenfield, finishing two passes on the 305. Groomer is completed a second pass through Greenfield on the 217 and is currently on the 104 rail bed grooming to Murray River.
Groomer went out last night and groomed the 217 through Greenfield and up the 103 to Pisquid. On the way back the groomer went on the 311 Lorne Valley trail. Unfortunately we had a couple issues with the groomer/drag and had to leave the drag on the 311 at the Lorne Valley rd crossing. Please be careful in that area.
Groomer went out last night and groomed from the 104 rail bed in Grandview, the 217 to through Greenfield, and went up the 103 rail bed to Pisquid. From there it went back down the 103 rail bed onto the 217 and down the 305 County Line to Murray Harbour. Groomer is currently making it's way to Ashton on the 221, and will groom into Montague and Georgetown after. Please use caution on the 221 near Dundas as the marked washout is still there.
Groomer made two passes on the 305 county line trail last night.
There is a large washout in the Dundas area on the 221 between the Weatherbee rd and the Cumberland rd. Please use extra caution and reduce speed in that area.
The #4 groomer was able to get two passes on the 104 rail bed from Uigg to Murray Harbour, the 217 through Greenfield, 221 to Ashton, and the 103 rail bed from Pisquid to Cardigan. Unfortunately the rail beds are showing significant gravel in areas and the rest of the trails don’t have enough snow to process in the drag or to cut and fill moguls. Let’s hope we get more snow!
Groomer left last night on the 104 rail bed, onto the 217 through Greenfield and up to Pisquid River on the 103 rail bed. It returned the same way for a second pass, fueled up at home base and carried on down the 104 rail bed to Murray Harbour. From there it went up the 305 County Line trail, across the 217 and back to fill up on the 104 to complete one pass of that loop. Please be advised there is little to no snow in some areas, especially on the 104 rail bed. Grooming is scheduled to continue all day and night.
The #4 groomer has been on the move for the last few days. Yesterday the groomer left home base on the 104 rail bed, onto the 217 through Greenfield and up the 221 to Ashton. Please use caution in that area as there is a lack of snow in the fields. From Ashton the groomer went back down the 221, and groomer the 103 rail bed into Cardigan and Georgetown. Groomer went up to Pisquid on the 103 rail bed and made its way back to home base on the 104 rail bed.
Groomer #4 is on the move today. We are attempting to pack the snow that is on the trail now and hopefully, with any luck, more snow will blow on to the trail this afternoon and evening. Grooming is scheduled to continue until the entire route is completed.
Groomer left home base on the 104 railbed, through Greenfield on the 217 and is heading to Mt Stewart on the 103 railbed.
The #4 groomer went out yesterday for new operator training and to help fix up a few areas that still have some snow. The groomer left on the 104 rail bed toward Murray Harbour, then onto the 305 to Greenfield and then down the 217 to get back on the 104 railbed to park for the night. Snow levels on the railbed were fair at best, and in the Murray Harbour area, there was more gravel than snow. The 305 trail is in ok shape overall and the 217 is hit and miss for snow.
#4 Groomer is sitting pretty and ready to groom... when the snow is fit. There hasn't been enough snow on the ground to groom in our area yet. If you're scratching the itch to ride your snowmobile, please stay on the marked trail, as off trail riding can lead to trail closures on private property.
