We are down to one groomer as of yesterday afternoon. We put the #1 groomer through the ice near the rt 11 highway on trail 19. We managed to back it out, thankfully a four track unit. In doing so we broke the fan blade. With quick action by the crew, we had a tow to the shop and went to Tracadie for a fan. Installed it and towed the unit back and were on the trail by 2pm. Unfortunately the unit developed another problem and it could be due to the break through the ice. The long and short of it, is that we may be down until Tuesday as it is in Tracadie fot repair.
The?Big Blue is still our backup and it has the trail broke from Nepisiguit to Popple Depot plus the California Loop. We'll push through this, but please bear with us. We thank you for your patience. Please note that the trail to the Host is groomed short by two kilometers.
