2014 02 trails newThe President of the Southeast Sno-Riders says the snowstorm this past week has ensured at least one more weekend of riding.

Mitch Gobeil says everywhere west of Piney got a few inches of snow which has really improved trail conditions. He notes this past week they were able to groom all the trails they have opened this year.

"If we hadn’t received this snow, we hadn’t made the determination, but there was a good chance we would not have been able to groom because there was nothing out there to groom and with the heat it tends to ice up the trails, makes it difficult to groom, especially when there was not much of a base, because everyone is aware we didn’t get lots of snow this winter to start with."

Gobeil notes east of Piney, the South Junction and Moose Lake area did not get any snowfall. He notes the trails have been busy over the last few weeks with riders trying to get a few more days of snowmobiling in before the end of the season.

"Things have been busy, a lot of snowmobilers on the trail. In talking to the owner of Silver Birch Resort at Moose Lake on the last weekend in February, he said the traffic was crazy. I know from our club, we did an overnight ride and myself and a few others we came back through Falcon Lake, and they were all pumped out of premium fuel even Falcon Lake which was a surprise."

Gobeil says this past weekend was their annual vintage show, shine, and ride which was a big success.
