11:00 AM - December 23, 2022
Lodge opens this morning at 10 am for food and gas. Come on over and visit the "New Look" Lodge. We are really proud of our new look.
Here we go again; Two steps forward and one step backwards. The forecast for tonight does not look promising, but looking over the last few days, it has changed slightly in our favor. It will start out as snow and turn to rain overnight. It could be a little different in the high ground, especially near Popple Depot where it looks like more of a snow dumping up to 25cm and some rain. The only difference in the high ground as opposed to Bathurst, is that there is more snow (up to TWO feet in places).
I was speaking with Ron on Wed night and we both agree that this was one of the more difficult start-ups with all the wet snow and downed trees and branches. With Christmas upon us he is hoping you would understand that groomer operators do he decently groomed where have lives too. The trails are decently groomed on what we have done already. Trail 23 from Nepisiguit to Popple Depot. Trail 22 from Nine Mile Shelter to the 301/22 intersection, most clusters and the 507. I'm not sure if the NBFSC trail map showing groomed trails is correct, but it doesn't on my computer.
