    Myself and 3 friends were on the trails this weekend and had a blast, The trails were not groomed like highways but if people want that they should buy a car and drive the highways ,It was the best riding in virgin snow I have ever done.Keep up the great work and ignore the naysayers. By the way, we are not kids, My group were all late 50's SUPER WORK

    I just spent three days on your trails with my 16 year old son and three freinds. We put on 800km and would have to say it was some of the best groamed trails I have ever been on. All the hours you put in grooming really made the trip a memorable one for us. This was our first time leaving NS to sled but defiantly will not be our last, we are already planning to come back second week of March. I also enjoy reading your post each day that you have to keep everyone updated on what is going on. I would say in the 800km we put on we only came across two sleds that were going too fast for a norrow trail. Keep up the good work I'm sure everyone appreciates all the hard work that everyone in the area clubs put in. The trails don't get that good with out a lot of time and effort put into them.

    I have been spending most of my winters in Florida, but following your trails reports all along,( see my 24-03-2017 comment) you convinced me that I was missing out on something I loved to do, that is ski-doing so this year I sold my place down there and returned to Bathurst and just bought a new Yamaha VK540V and a camp in the Popple area and planing to go to your Danny Burger Run March 3, Roland

    First off Don thank you so much for all you do for sledders everywhere. Your reports are I am sure, the most informative of any club in the snowmobile world . Your constant work organizing not only groomers schedules, getting repairs done, and everything else you do for your club and all sledders is simply amazing. Your trail conditions as a result of all your team at Nepisiquit are unmatched in Atlantic Canada and beyond I am sure. Your safety messages are great and getting to a lot of sledders, not all unfortunately, but to many. We were there 3 days last week wed-fri did over 900 kms and trails were excellent. Friday afternoon just as coming close to the lodge met 2 sleds on the first turn out and low and behold first guy in middle of turn second guy completely over on left hand side I had to come to complete stop and just shook my head at the idiot, some really think they are the only ones even when they go by a club house with many many sleds in the yard. But keep trying Don you might get through to them eventually. Sorry for the length but you deserve so much gratitude for all you do.
    Thank You John

    A sincere thank you to all of you for your aggressive energy to make your trails the best there is! Been sledding NB Bathurst an area, several trips since Jan. 2nd 2018 and with the exception of Saturdays for the most part we have grinned from ear to ear all day long!! Safety has been a concern with sleds on the wrong side of the trail from time to time, however most of us are doing pretty well. Again, thank you for all you do, I can only Imagine some of the issues you deal with, Appreciatively, the sledders from Berwick, New Minas and Brooklyn NS

    I read your reports almost daily. I don’t know how you keep everything going so smoothly. You set a high bar for your replacement. Keep up the good work and we so enjoy your trails.

    Very big thank you guys for grooming our section of trail 22 from 503 to 19/22 shelter. We are up to our necks in snow and it is hard going with only one groomer. Hopefully, we'll be able to get the John Deere out of the woods this week and get it back on the trails. Thanks again, much appreciated.

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.
