February 2nd. Trail Update. 2021
Smart has trails open. Visit OFSC Trail conditions for information.
he volunteers have been working pretty much every day for the last two and a half months on our trails. Everything from moving dislodged bridges cutting downed trees etc., all the usual things that need doing. Once the snow got here it was constant packing with sleds then sleds and drags to try and drive frost into all our swampy areas.
e got a big dump of snow last week which was needed but also made for a lot of slush on these swampy areas and on the lakes. We have had to help pull one groomer out of a spot which had been good previously but was a complete sink hole on the weekend. We had to bring an excavator in a long way to get it out. As usual our terrain is full of challenges but our crew works tirelessly on.
ith the cold weather and things finally freezing up the Trooper is now out with a drag trying to get everything flat and filled in.
he lakes will be staked this week as well. Positive thoughts that all will go well and we can move to yellow soon. Thank you for your support.
or specific trail availability details, always consult the OFSC Interactive Trail Guide (ITG) prior to accessing snowmobiles trails.
B105 Swift Road Reminder!!!
Just a reminder to all snowmobiles using Swift road.....This is an access road used jointly between Orillia Power Generation, Parks Canada, Hydro One, Simcoe County, Severn Township and the Ministry of Natural Resource. It is used daily by workers to access the dam and as such is cleared regularly by plow truck and tractor and blower. When you encounter their pick up trucks on the road we encourage you to wave, smile and thank them for this allowed access. If they continue to get harassed by sledders this access will be closed and we will lose an important piece of our trail system.
These are great people and some are fellow sledders so be nice! This is also used by cottagers and residents as well, some of whom volunteer for our snowmobile club so again be nice.
Please be cognizant of vehicle traffic and slow your speed down. There are speed limit signs posted! Stay to the right at all times. Thank you.
STAY TUNED NEW PICTURES COMING SOON !
