Thank you for the update/report Mid Range. Now we just need cold and maybe more snow to connect the dots?

It's a no go as we speak on TQ 13 north.....club posted last nite on their fb page......joseph river north of maniwaki is flooded. Swamps and rivers will be a problem with many clubs due to the lack of cold. Stay tuned.

here's an example of the lack of cold.....volunteers at work on TQ 63 just outside Maniwaki

You are right on midrange.

Your first photo here is gonna be what many other clubs will be seeing as they try to open up the trails. The snow is great but without cold cold weather for a solid week or more this is gonna be troublesome. For a while yet.

indeed Iceman.....ground is not frozen......let's be patient. Club sank a groomer in a swamp on TQ 13 south of Grand-Remous. Lots of surprise under this pile of snow.

Do what they do in NY and hope the belt doesn't get wet.

imagine a groomer in that swamp.

At least its getting there!

here's a pic for you Rich
