Well we finally have a reason to post. The central groomer headed west on Rte 100 last night. Very little snow between York and Hunter River with several large bare spots. There is decent snow west of Hunter River but still a few bare spots. The groomer has turned in Summerside and went back to Hunter River. The HR to Summerside has a double run. Snow is scarce between Kensington and Summerside. The groomer will make another run when it get colder tonight. Let hope for colder weather and safe sledding.
Well we finally have a start!!!! We will take it but definitely not the right kind to start a trail with. Very fluffy and full of air that will not hold any weight. Good thing is no wind, and therefore no banks, which is unusual around here. We need snowmobilers to drive and pack down snow before we will be able to do anything with the groomers. If we went now all we would do is push the snow off the trail with the drag when it is this light. Once it is driven on, the air will come out of it and hopefully there will be a few inches left to work with. If it is cold enough we will try and make something of it. Hopefully more soon
we started yesterday afternoon groomimg through Spring Valley and Margate (rt 206, 402, 304). Last night it went through to rustico, to the rail bed in fredericton, and to Louis place (rt 208, 306, 308). The operator said conditions are good to excellent with minimal bare spots. Get out and enjoy them because with the moisture in the snow and the high temps, they wont last long.
The groomer was out Saturday and Sunday; Saturday night he groomed the 209 to Fredericton and back; Sunday he groomed the 209 through Crapaud and Kinkora to Emerald and back.
He is heading out again this morning on the 301 to groom to the railbed at Lanks (213). He is hoping to be able to bring enough snow in on the trail in this area for anyone wanting to get out for a ride today or tonight. This will be the last opportunity for this year as the temperatures are going to be too warm starting Tuesday.
