Winter has returned to Sault Ste. Marie. Fresh snow fell overnight and into the morning. Hopefully it spreads across North-Eastern Ontario. (photo attached)

SSM is the closest starting point for many in Michigan and I love to start 6 hours from home rather than 9 hours from home. We try to ride north & east rather than drive it.

Info on the Soo area is great to get. Thanks so much for keeping it out here. The info on the Aubrey Falls area and the D106 connection, and other connections not on the interactive map is what we get from you which is great!

Thanks for taking the time.

Sault Ste. Marie Report:

Approximately 10 cm in total in the past 24 hours. Nothing to get too excited about as trails are still closed. Snow is likely Lake Effect and may not go very far inland.

Have emailed my Wawa, Chapleau, Aubrey Falls and Elliot Lake contacts earlier this morning to gather feedback and report back here.

Domtar area is rideable. Logging roads are ok north of Searchmont.

Thanks for the info Dan,

I plan to be riding around the Soo starting Thursday evening next week.

I will run to Black Creek Outfitters and then to Elliot Lake one day. (I hope to see some more new snow by then?)

The trail is now limited from Aubrey Falls to Elliot Lake. Hoping the D106 is opened too. Is the gate on the Garden River Bridge open before the trails open?

Maybe we will run into you somewhere?

Thanks for that info. It is listed as "Limited" not "Open". That upper section is flat and does not need as much snow.

Thanks for getting that groomed!

That's fantastic ElliotGroomer. Thanks for the important update. Had a feeling that if there was snow, you guys would be right on top of it. Wonderfult and thanks for your dedication.

There's a group from the Sault heading to Elliot Lake next weekend via Aubrey Falls. We are riding Elliot Lake to Aubrey Falls on Feb. 2nd.

Today, we will be in Aubrey Fallls.

On another note, The Sault received approximately 4" of snow last night, Lots of snow now Scott and Ski.

Thanks for the update and, more importantly, for the grooming.

Elliot Lake is a great place to start from.

Thanks IQ,

The trail is all green now to Black Creek Outfitters from Elliot Lake. Hope to see the D106 open, but if the Garden River Bridge Gate is open, we will try it anyway.

Sounds like conditions keep getting better.

Wednesday Jan. 30th - 12:55 PM Weather Update:

It's snowing heavy in the Sault and started approximately 11 AM, so this storm is now in full-swing and making its way across N/E Ontario.
