Good morning from Bathurst. -2 at post. Wow! Storm of the century. A whopping 10 cm. We'll call it the St Patrick's nephew's storm.
Ron had the groomers out earlier than expected in the afternoon and are still on the trail at post. It wasn't the predicted snowfall with close to 10 cm at best. Grooming last night had the #2 groom Trail 19 from East Bathurst to the Atlantic Host and then back to Nepisiguit Lodge and a change of operators and continued on to Rogers Lake on Trail 23. It also did the 502 into Austin Brook, 509 into Shady Lane, Bouchy Brook Cluster. It is still on the trail at post. The #1 was out of Rogers Lake on Trail 23 to 507, Trail 22 north to the 301/22 intersection, then south on 22 to Nine Mile Shelter, back on 22 north to 507, Red Pine Shelter and back to Rogers Lake for an opperator change and it proceeded back on 23, Piston Alley to Governors and Popple Depot. It did the 506. It is still on the trail at post and will continue on the 503 to Trail 19 (Simpson Fields) and back. GREAT JOB BY RON AND CREW. BRYAN & JACOB ON #2, FRANCOIS AND MICKEY ON #1.
