    It is disappointing to see the trails closing but we all have to be proactive in getting past this virus. Thank you to everyone who make snowmobiling in northern NB so good. All of the clubs do a great job of giving us some of the best trails in Canada but club # 1 does the best job of keeping us informed. Already looking forward to next season. Be Safe everyone.

    I would just like to thank everyone for there hard work that is put into the trails and the trail report up dates. Many of us read your reports daily with our coffee and it's too bad that the other clubs don't put the time in to up date there end of the trail system . Lets not forget about the 1st class grooming that we are subject to every time we travel over to NB , fantastic job guys . It's a pleasure to read everyday the trail conditions along with any info that you pass on to all snowmobilers . Hats off to all involved and keep up the good work

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.
