Looks like we're back crossing on the dam ?

Noticed the same thing, last year while up there after Xmas, Dennis actually ran the groomer up to the Dam. Curious to see what that’s all about.

They posted online that the bridge needed work.  Didn’t specify what exactly what was wrong but it wasn’t safe anymore.

 

The dam is wider now and crossed it last year.  It wasn’t bad at all.

Yes I confirm, they closed the bridge for safety issue. Here is what the snowmobile club published on Facebook about that:

Following a thorough inspection, we made the decision to completely close the Mattawin Bridge. The bridge is not safe enough.
You will have to borrow the bull dam Taureau. The change has been reported to the federation and will be visible on your snowmobile app(imotoneige).

And yes the crossing on the dam Is ok now it have been reworked, the central section is wider and pretty straight on the west side.

Figured it had to be some sort of safety issue.

Either way ride the trails as they are presented and make some memories!!!!!!!

That bridge always seems too low to the water to be able to handle floods and ice buildups...  Was a nice bridge and only like 5 years old, hopefully they get it fixed up to avoid the dam crossing...
