Anybody know the reason? 

Guess: Lack of staff or not financially viable to open if capacity is 50%, for some places which likely have high costs due to location. I cancelled our Moose Horn Lodge booking, she mentioned that others have also cancelled and that for only a few bookings that there is no point in opening.

They are serving chilli and toast downstairs.

I went past the Moose Horn Lodge (Chapleau) a few days back. 
The trail re-route and work to power lines has caused the road linking the Lodge with the trail to be cut to dirt, but I just went the other direction and all is good. 
I can see issues if there is a melt, but for now the re-route is fantastic and uses the other road most of the way. 
Chapleau area is all great riding.

We stopped in Chapleau on the way back to Searchmont at the end of a 10 day trip. 

There is now a service to trailer your group around the closed section which I will try to post.  
 

Also, some are cutting through to Harwood Lake Lodge from or to the C Trail and then just hooking up to the C101D.  I have done it years ago.  If you call Harwood L L them may be able to help you out?

 

BTW - Loving the Renegade 900 T. 
1,700 miles now and it is quiet, smooth, and sweet to ride.  Eco mode is good for 76mph and I normally trail ride in standard mode.  It does over 100mph in standard mode.  I use sport at times, but I have never gone over 111mph.  This is the best touring sled because it  goes at a good pace with no effort.  We went from Timmins to Smoothrock and with all the stops still averaged 57mph.  All trails were perfect.  Never have I seen them like this and almost nobody around.  It was pretty cold also.
 

We went directly from Chapleau to Searchmont using groomed trails only last Sunday.  Never saw anyone and pushed 4-8” of new snow.  We took it easy to conserve gas so 45 - 60mph.  About 125 miles on the BRP odometer and 130 miles on the Arctic Cat odometer.  Had just dropped down to 2 bars on the BRP fuel gage as we turned into the Driftwood.  Gets good mileage if you take it easy.

We went from Searchmont to Dubreuilville first day.  Spent 3 nights in Dub.  Did some back trails and the Magpie a few times.  Had lunch on the sleds at Tim Horton’s after going through the drive through.  That was prior to opening back up.  Then Monday had lunch in Hornepayne and continued up to Hearst. 
Then To Cochrane with some excitement in Smoothrock where the gas station was closed.  Of course we never got gas since leaving Hearst and came in with the low fuel light on.

After learning not to trust anymore we were able to pay extra and buy gas to get us to Cochrane.  Then Iroquois Falls and Timmins and back to Kapuskasing.  Then loops and again back in Hearst.  Back to Dub the next day. Then ran down to Halfway for Lunch Saturday.  Took about 2hr. 45min. From Dubreuilville.  The Chili was great.  We then ran over to Chapleau and stayed at Valentine’s. 62 miles and very fast perfect run.  Sunday ran straight to Searchmont in new snow and drove home. 
Great trip. Best trails in the last 23 years.  Everywhere.

Wowsie looks great. Miss that place already. I always took lake out from lodge and followed the tracks back out to trail, when heading towards chapleau.  Not very long on road anyways to trail other direction either. Last time I was there owner just cut that hydro trail and I wasn’t sure if there was stumps under snow or not, so took bare dry road instead.
