A big thank you to Shane Martin and Donny Martin for going out again
today and packing parts of the B105 from Swift Rd to Big Chute.
Trails 14 and 15 including the sometimes nasty swamp just past the floating bridge. They also did C trail to Quarry Rd and Port Severn.
There is still a fair bit of water and the temperatures are not suppose to be very cold unfortunately to freeze these up faster. We will continue to work on what we can and hope Mother Nature helps us with more cold and snow.

PATIENCE, PATIENCE, PATIENCE…
I am receiving a lot of emails, texts and phone calls asking about the trails and the ice so people can get to their cottages. So here is a quick Cole’s note version of what reality is although everyone thinks lots of snow so now I can go snowmobiling.
Ice Conditions: last Friday night the bays (Wood Bay, Lost Channel, MacLean Lake, got to nearly 1” of good blue ice. The river remains wide open. High winds on Wednesday with 2 foot waves didn’t make ice. Then there were 5 days of zero temps and 2 feet of snow. The ice actually deteriorated to slush and is now very unsafe. I checked Wood Bay yesterday and I could push a shovel through the ice. I even thought I would be able to stand on it. Then we received another foot of snow. THERE IS NO ICE
Trails: There is absolutely no frost in the ground. The snow in the bush is actually melting from the bottom up. There was only 4-5 inches of snow yesterday in the bush before the latest snowfall. Rocks were showing. Therefore the ruts and swamps are nowhere near frozen. Our equipment will be severely damaged if we were to try and groom. We will be taking out the Skandics shortly to try and pack the trails. It is going to be very muddy and a very difficult task with all this snow and no frost.
So please be patient. I know it is difficult for most to comprehend all this snow and no trails open. The SMART Club will be doing their best with what Mother Nature has provided us with. We shall post pictures shortly of what I am trying to say about the mud. Unfortunately our trail system is an absolute horror show with ruts caused by the ATV’s and 4X4 Mudder trucks. We do not have the luxury of abandoned railway beds, farm fields and logging roads like some clubs. It is a huge challenge for us.
