After going through a bit of deep freeze, it looks like the weather is turning for the weekend with good sledding temperatures. This past weekend saw a lot of big drifting plus downed trees on the trails. The Operators had their hands full cleaning up on huge drifts and downed trees.
Both the #1 & #2 groomers were running 24-7 up until last night. The #1 just got back from Piston Alley and then went around the California Loop. It groomed all clusters along that loop and back to Rogers Lake. The #2 didn't stop as well. It came from Bathurst and did a big scrub between Nepisiguit and Rogers Lake. Once back at Nepisiguit we had an operator change at which time it proceeded back down towards East Bathurston Trails 23 & 19 and on to Bass River. It was still on the trail early this morning. They are at rest as of early this morning. Ron hopes to get the #3 "Big Blue" fixed up today. It means removing the track to get new stesuds on one of the main drive wheels. At present our trails are running from a 7 to a 10. Going forward it is shaping up to be a busy week on the trails. All of our trails will have seen grooming over the last three days and some, multiple times.
