We are back to normal with the wet weather behind us. The #2 unit was out of Roger's Lake and all trails were done, including the 503.. The 3 unit groomed from Nepisiguit to Rogers Lake. Ron had the #1 unit at the shop for full Service over the past two days and was ready to go last night. It groomed down to Bass River, then over to Nepisiguit and back to the Atlantic Host. The trails remain flat and hard. Yesterday was a busy day at the lodge as well as every where across the system. BTW the head pond is safe to cross except it is very icy.
Mount Carleton thank you: Ron received a call this week from Louis, the grooming manager of the Park thanking us for sending a groomer up into Mt Carleton in a snow storm to help them out. Their groomer got stuck in a huge drift. Ron had our operator Roger Theriault travel from Rogers lake to the cupid trail to plough out the stuck groomer and hauled him out of the snow drift. This took place during the night of Feb 8 in a blinding snowstorm at around 11PM on the Cupid Trail. Louis said if we ever need anything from them please ask and he would be happy to return the favour. He was very happy we helped them out as they were in a mess with only one groomer. Ron told him we were happy to help as we have to do this in our business of grooming. At this time, the club would like to acknowledge Roger for his dedication to grooming and for his extraordinary help in this case. He was basically on the trail for over 25 hours as he also groomed from there into Serpentine Lodge for a short rest and a meal from Alyre then onwards from there to the Park with the Park Groomer via Candy Cane. Fueled up at the park and groomed the 504 and 23 back to Rogers Lake.
