  1. Thanks Lep, little clarification, you are pretty much correct. I do the section of "C" trail from the South end of Mattagami Lake to Shining Tree down to where I split with Sudbury, about 130 plus kms of trail. Pat, the club president and his wife Chantal, who is everything else in the club, look after Mattagami Lake, "C" trail from Mattagami Lake North to Post 392 where Timmins splits with him, 90 plus kms of trail. Yes, that power line is challenging and needs more snow than most everywhere else. Also he goes into Gogama. The main issue has been a so called refirbished machine delivered to m
  2. To whom it may concern, the trail section that I'm responsible for is now closed. The interactive map will eventually reflect that. Thanks, Derek.
  3. It is really thin on the trail coming into Shining Tree for about 10 kms. Just not enough snow. Watch for the odd fist sized rocks that have been kicked up. If we get some snow by Friday like some models say, we will be good. Also keep in mind the C for the last 50 kms coming into the Tree are rock hard. The milder temps should help though........
  4. Carm, you would have to ask Auld Reekie in Gowganda about th L143 trail, I have not rode it yet. C trail is done for the season, the forestry is moving in Monday. Kered.
  5. Mining, not logging but same diff. Logging is now going to move in as of Monday because mining pulled the trigger. Derek.
  6. The "C" trail North of Shining Tree has been plowed due to mining operations this time. The Water Shed located @ highway 560 & highway 144 can be thanked for that. They haven't even responded to the clubs calls. They plowed 15 of 20 signs into the trail as well, slows, arrows, etc..... Couldn't wait a couple of weeks to look @ rocks that haven't moved in 12,000 years. We really do have to get off these logging roads. Had a deal with the logging companies to wait until after the March break, then mining couldn't wait I guess. Very frustrating, three years in a row now. Derek.

  8. Auld Reekie is best, we just have microwave stuff in a general store with no seating. Snacks/ non- alcoholic drinks / fuel/ oil & other sled related items. Not advertising, you asked. Derek.
  9. Carm; Yes for Shining Tree, Auld Reekie carries it so I'm assuming they are not out. happy sledding!
  10. Carm; Just woke up, groomed "C" Shining Tree to Sudbury split point, Sudbury was up a couple of days ago. GEM has a groomer on A107C right now from Gowganda, almost to the "C" trail as we speak. All should be green by day's end. Reported mine last evening. Hope this helps, Derek.
  11. Hi, Derek here. I look after the "C" trail for 60 kms either direction from Shining Tree. The "C" trail passes right by the village of Shining Tree with a 1 km of local trail L142 dead ending @ Shining Tree Camp for premium fuel and or snacks. No bar or grill but microwaveable snacks like chili, stews, ravioli, etc........ store is open 8am - 10 pm while the trails are open. This is not advertising, just informing. Now for the trails. They presently show closed on either side of Shining Tree because on the South side some rocks are showing through the trail. On the North side for 10 kms a
  12. "C" trail from Shining Tree to Timmins should be open by January 22nd. Just opened from Sudbury to Shining Tree. Worked on North section along 560 highway last couple days. Have to break rest of trail to the Mattagami and get it signed. Pat has done North of the Mattagami almost to Post 392, Timmins has been down as well. Some trees down and needs to be signed. Warm weather coming may be a grooming issue but like I said, January 22nd is the goal. Logging was to be done but postponed until after March break. I do not know about the "C" trail North of Timmins but heard of some issue, probably lo
