Grooming started Sunday Morning with the groomer heading west towards Summerside. We only did the main railbed past Reids corner as water was still sitting in the fields across from Green Diamond and off the Rail Bed. Groomer came back to Winsloe and did a Driver Change and did the trail towards Borden. We are trying to cut the trail where we can as the mild temp on saturday did more damage to the railbed then the rain did. Groomer Left Winsloe again and went back to Summerside and did the Warburton Road(route 208) and is doing the Grand River trail presently(route 204). The snow is fluff and will easily blow off in areas and will not stick very well. Hopefully in will process well enough to stick to the areas it is needed. Plan is to do a driver change later this evening and go back toward Borden and back to Charlottetown. We are planning to do a double pass on the North Side Trail (route 212) thru the day Tuesday. We plan to try to keep the groomer going as much as we can til the weather shifts later this week. Sled safe as the snow is very hard underneath.
Eastern Grooming Committee. A little introduction to any one that may not know us here at Eastern Grooming Community, we are a 100% volunteer group that was started to help improve and create new trails in the eastern end of the island we rely solely on our fundraising to be able to create and groom the trails in our area. We do the best we can with the volunteers we have. On Wednesday, March 3rd Eastern Grooming Committee left our base in Greenfield and headed out to the trails. First grooming the 313 to Uigg then doubling back the 313 extension to the 305 then headed to floating bridge on the 425. Friday, March 5, the groomer left base in greenfield grooming the 313 to Uigg and surrounding areas then proceeded to the 313 extension and on to do the 425 to floating bridge due to high traffic and people running in the middle of trail. Please remember to stay right, the trail will last longer for everyone to enjoy.
