  1. Great reports and good to see your taking advantage of all the snow in northern Ontario.

    Temagami North on A

    Rode temagami to new liskard 18FEB. About 12 kms plowed for powertech/lapraire equipment (hydro guys) which was no good. We had fresh snow a day or so before so was snow packed but with one or two days of sun it would be down to gravel. The rest of the trail was good but bumpy. Likely groomed and smoother now as it was the end of family day weekend when we where there.
  3. I rent my 7by 17 enclosed trailer out. Easily fits two sleds and lots of room for gear etc. PM me for details. I am located near Brantford, ON.

    End of season prognosis

    Yeah we will see what shakes out. I agree, it would be nice if there were more options in the crossover track market that were pre-studded. The storm 150 (1.5”) or the backcountry x (1.75”) would be ideal prestudded.

    Yeah doesn’t sound positive. But it’s at the dealer right now getting “inspected”.

    Yes the lugs are ripping off. A number on the outside edge. You have a similar issue?

    End of season prognosis

    Scratchers were down here and there - yes. No wheels. I have shaper bars and they seem to last quite well. Although the 1.6” ice cobra track didn't fair too well but with 5500 kms I guess you can’t really ask of too much more.

    End of season prognosis

    We just rode Kirkland Lake to Hearst and back with some side loops in Timmins area. 1400 kms. Rode April 7-9. Kirkland to cochrane was great on the trail but a number of bare spots and road crossings were dirt. A number of sections were down to dirt - anywhere near roads. Cochrane to kap was hit and miss. The day up trails were quite icy but on the way back they were great. Same story some bare spots too. Less new snow in this area compared to Kirkland. The Kap trail through town is closed and it should be although it is passable. Not much snow and lots of dirt - we took the highway bridge over the river. Kap to Hearst could use more fresh snow as the trails were icy and a fair number of bare spots but still overall good. In the timminis area some trails are bare and there are a number of sections with little snow. Trail to gogama and back was the best although it is closed now. Saw at least 4 groomers: 2 in the cochrane area and 2 near Kirkland lake so they are still grooming. But with little traffic and little new snow not much can be done in some spots. Overall i would say the trails were good and at the very least passable. Clubs are doing great work with the extended season. This is what I remember so if I missed something - sorry. We also ride in all conditions so take what I say for what it’s worth.

    Sault Ste. Marie - Area

    Do you have the link for the light bar and mounts you used? I hear 18” double row fits best. Sorry to highjack.

  12. Isn’t there a restaurant in foleyet? Just down the road and across for the general store. I thought we sat down to eat there?

    Geraldton/Greenstone Reconnected

    Was talking to some folks in geraldton, and they said the link between hearst and lonlac likely wont open this year as they are having some issues with some local land owners - so hopefully they will be able to open that section at some point!

    Sudbury Coming Around

    Not sure what it is worth but last Saturday rode from near royal in sudbury to shinning tree. Trails were good but not great. In shining tree could use more snow but easily passable. The trail up on a logging road (I assume that is what it is) was good but had some small moguls likely due to the traffic as there were a lot of people out in the area last weekend. Best trail we rode all weekend. I would not not hesitate to hit that trail again. But it would benefit from more snow. All of the other trails in the area that we rode were okay but lots of rocks, bare spots and moguls. Again only because of the traffic and lack of snow not because of the clubs. As for logging. There was nonligging on the open trail going up to shinningbtree but there was an old trail that was marked closed which was plowednfor logging. Hope this helps!

    Owen Sound..

    Nope. Just off the rail trail there is a side trail into town. Then if I recall it was less than 1 block to Boston pizza and gas (beside each other). The short distance in town was through a ditch and a parking lot. Both were snow covered last week.
