Trail Conditions
Thee Night Grooming Window
(05:55 AM, Mar 25, 2019)

Mon, Mar 25th, Club #1
     All three groomers were out last night and are still grooming at post. The #1 has been stationed to Nepisiguit from Rogers Lake due to road conditions. It left Nepisiguit for Serpentine and should return sometime late tonight on Trail 23. This is at least a 24 hour run. The #2 is on Trail 19 from East Bathurst to West Bathurst o the Atlantic Host. At Post it is on the return leg. The #3 ran from Nepisiguit down “The Line” on Trail 23 turned at the 19/23 intersection and did the 23 up to Rogers Lake and back to Nepisiguit Lodge. This was the first good window for grooming and after Tuesday night it looks like it could be our last for the short term. So, the next two days could determine our season for grooming unless we get some negative temps over the next few weeks.

OSM Magazine
(06:00 AM, Mar 24, 2019)

Sun, Mar 24th, Club #1  
There has been a change in the OSM Magazine and television show. They have changed their schedule as follows.
Jacquet River to Super-village club on Sunday.
Serpentine Lodge through Nepisiguit Club on Tuesday.
Back to Nepisiguit to nine mile east for groomer shots by drone on Tuesday.
Grooming: I’m assuming that the groomers will be out tonight after the temperatures drop. It looks good for grooming after today. There is a lot of wet snow down after the snow rain event Friday night through Saturday with varying amounts of heavy wet snow from 10 cm up to 25cm depending on elevations from Bathurst to Serpentine.
    I’m sorry that I’ve been out of the loop with the club these past days, but am going through some family health problems here at home, which is much more important to me. I’ll do the best that I can giving the circumstances. 



Messy day here in Bathurst
(09:00 AM, Mar 23, 2019)

It's a messy day here in Bathurst. Rain then snow,back to rain, then snow. Power was out at different times throughout the night. Once the temperature drops, we could possibly get out  and  groom. There could be a problem with tree overhangs.


Trails in Great Shape
(05:50 AM, Mar 20, 2019)

Wed, Mar 20th, Club #1 -15 at post
     We had the good with the bad yesterday.. Te #2 and from the Host to the Nepisiguit Lodge up the 23 and into the 502 Austin Brook Cluster and return to East Bathurst. Most parts of that trail were 11/10. For everyones info the mess near Cloucester Jct. on Trail 19 has been cleaned up (See Map Below). The #3 Big Blue groomed from the Lodge out 23 to Nine Mile Shelter and continued on 22 to the 22/507 intersection Trail is 10/10. The bad was on the #1 where we were going to make a rerun to Serpentine yesterday morning. Couldn’t start the unit. Electrical problems with the starter wiring. Floated it to Bathurst Heavy Equipment. Should be ready this AM, but grooming from here to Sunday does not look good with temperatures out to lunch. 
     For all you Southern sledders there is no worry of the lack of snow or trail base. We should be good up this way until the first of May. Yes, down the road there will be problems, but keep tuned in to this site and we'll do our best to keep you informed.



Weather Looks Good Going Forward
(05:50 AM, Mar 19, 2019)

Tuesday, Mar 19th, Club #1 -11 at post
     All three groomers were out again yesterday. The major was the #1 going to Serpentine on Trail 23. Trails are approaching 9/10 while 50 % is 10/10. The only trail not done in the system is the 503 and reports are that it is still great. We’ll see. 
      A lot of visitors on the trail system yesterday and the trend may continue into the weekend. The weather looks good up until Friday where the forecast keeps changing from rain to snow. The good thing is, that there isn’t much to the precip.
Tickets are completely sold out for the Steak Bar-B-Q supper for this Wednesday nights supper at Nepisiguit Sports lodge.
If you want tickets for the remaining two suppers you had better book soon

Nepisiguit Club #1

The Nepisiguit Snowmobile  club #1, which is the oldest snowmobile club in the province, has the largest membership in New Brunswick with 949 registered last season (826 for 15/16),  (849 for 14/15), (794 for 13/14), (809 for 12/14), (765 for 11/12), (579 for 07/08) with a strong Nova Scotia and PEI contingent and maintains a trail system about 400 Kilometers in length. The club started in 69/70 with one small groomer with membership fees of $10 and groomed  about 175 Km in the area between Brunswick Mines (Old Theriault Rd), Highway 430 (Nine Mile East Rd), and the now Caribou Mines.

Trails were designated and signed by such names as Caribou, Bear, Fox, Rabbit and Beaver. Log shelters were built along the trails and were also designated with animal names. One unique feature at the beginning was that all traffic was in one direction. It made for safer trails as the drags were only so wide. The trails were made in a series of 5 loops and one could vary their trip in any combination of loops as they so wished. We only use a small percentage of these trails today in our present system< namely: Nine Mile East, Nine Mile North, Rio, and the Forty Four. As time progressed  the trails expanded closer to Nepisiguit Falls where the Bathurst Fish and Game Ass. had built a lodge which is currently the Nepisiguit Sports Lodge. Then it progressed into Bathurst to the Atlantic Host Motor Inn.  Then the trail system blew up into the Chaleur area ( we were all one club back then) and down to the Miramichi to the Belfont area where there was a thriving club house.

Of course everything was dependent on the volunteer. Some of the founders were Howard Doucet , Bud Kenny, John Labonville  and there were a few more, plus loads of volunteers.
