Not great news about the trails. Friday's storm caused great devastation to some trails, such that we had to close Trail 23 out of the Nepisiguit Lodge to Rogers Lake. (see yesterday's post)
Ron is sending a groomer out today from Rogers Lake up to Red Pine shelter , 507 and up the 22 to check on what happened in that section. I will try to report at the end of the day. Ron also has some help to open up the 503 on Thursday. There are reported windfalls in there, but it is passable. He also said that once the water drains off in some of these trails he will make an attempt to recheck them. However, there seems to be a soft period at the end of this week, so that may add some additional problems.
We have had it easy in the past 5 to 6 years with good snow to start the season, but going back in history, we've also had similar circumstances and in some cases we were not able to start up until mid-January. We will do our best with what we have. I'm not sure what is wrong with the nbfsc trail map, but it does not appear to be working properly.
