Are they grooming Muskoka?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the groomers are out around Gravenhurst?

Trying to book a week ahead in hope that a few trails will open.

You'll need to book more to the north, unfortunately.

Around sprucedale and Kearney seem to be some of the only Muskoka area trails

Getting really close.

102D was not bad on Saturday north of Bala.  If Gravenhurst opens we may have a loop for the up coming Sno-Bomber weekend in Bracebridge

C102D and C114

 

After all the snow they  go yellow. Grooming issue?

I would like to try the trails into Bala. Anyone been south of Port Carling?

Did the Magic tour yesterday (Feb 14) C101D from Gravenhurst to Bala was not in good shape, looks like it had not been groomed, slow riding lots of moguls. The status was yellow and looks like the northern part still is today.

I saw the Snowcrest groomer heading west through town, just after dark last night.

It was green today. The section from 17 to Bala was terrible. Mogul city. Hopefully a groomer hits it soon or again if it was done recently.

I believe MLSTA may be currently dealing with a shortage of trained operators.

 

NOTE: There are ways to get from 17 to Bala with minimal use of C101D.

We were on it yesterday. My back is feeling it today. The top speed from Bala to 17 was about 20 kph. Lots of traffic, groomers can't be everywhere, so many possible reasons.

I hope I didn’t sound critical of the groomer operators and other volunteers. I know they are all working hard and their efforts are appreciated.

Snow Rider, I agree some local trails were pretty beat up over the weekend. Sheer traffic.

 

Now today...a little better.
