After looking at the trails in the Moncton area there will be no grooming due to a lack of snow.

 

 

Friday, 15 March 2019  6:30am

Very nice weather for sledding yesterday, and I heard there was a fair bit of traffic.

There will be no grooming with the upcoming weather for the next 2 days.  Looking ahead it looks like Sunday night will be our next time out.

Next week's weather is looking pretty good with cold temperatures at night.

 

 

Wednesday, 13 March 10:30pm

All trails on the Mountain and Hillsborough have been groomed, and are in great shape.

Trail 15 out of Riverview is very icy and is not recommended.

Trail 885 is in good shape and very passable.

 

Let’s get out and enjoy wing night tomorrow night as the looks of the upcoming weather this could be the last night leaving from town .

 I have also heard the railway out of Salisbury is passable .

Sled safe and stay to the right.

 

 

Tuesday, 12 March 2019  8:30pm

3 groomers are on the move tonight.

We have had one groomer in Moncton helping out.  That groomer will return today doing Riverview / Point Park and back out the 885.

Moncton groomer will be going to Coal Branch.

Another machine will be doing the Mountain trails to Alma.

The fourth machine will be doing Hillsborough / Albert returning going to Sweet Mountain 878.

Trails should be setting up good with these temps.

New groomer is not into circulation yet as we have completely detailed it and doing some modifications before it hits the snow.

Hats off to our operators who have been putting in some long shifts after this recent snow.

Sled safe.

 

 

Sunday, 03 March 2019  5:00pm

We received our new Tucker today at the Clubhouse and what a beautiful machine it is.

new tucker  tucker b

We would like to thank all of our members, club sign sponsors, and most of all our giant cash draw supporters.

Without all this support we just couldn’t make this happen and we all should be very proud to have a machine like this in our fleet.

 

 

Sunday, 03 March 2019  8:30am

Very easy to do a report today as all trails in our system are in great shape .

 

Groomers were out last night touching them up.  We can definitely use the snow that is coming in Moncton and Riverview.

 

Heard a story of pancake breakfast at Mountain View shelter starting at 10:30am.

 

Directors meeting for Monday night will be rescheduled to Monday, 11 March 2019.

 

 

Friday, 01 March 2019  9:00am

Sunday, 24 February 2019  10:00am

Very busy day on the trails yesterday.

I arrived at the Clubhouse around 2:30, and it was definitely the most sleds I have ever seen there.

Trails were getting a little rough by the end of day with the increased traffic .

Two groomers out last night with one doing the Mountain and one going to Point Park / Riverview .

 

 

Friday, 22 February 2019  9:30pm

One groomer has been out in the mountain area all day.

There will be one going to do Hillsborough / Albert and one going to Riverview tonight.

Moncton groomer will be on the trails tomorrow also.

Sled safe and stay to the right.

 

 

Wednesday, 20 February 2019  9:00pm

Trails on the mountain, Hillsborough ,and to Hardscrabble have been groomed and are good.

Groomer has been to Riverview and trail is passable.

With the snow tomorrow everything should be good.

Let’s everybody try and get out for wing night.

 

 

Sunday, 17 February 2019  8:30am

 Three groomers were out last night on the Mountain and one to Hillsborough, Riverview, and Moncton will be done once all the water freezes back up

 

 

Saturday, 16 February 2019  7:30am

Here we go again with our weekly rain day.  It is definitely a struggle trying to keep trails with the weather we have been getting .

Lots of traffic on our trails the last 2 days.  I saw a group from Nova Scotia on our trails yesterday which is nice to see.

Let’s hope for more snow soon as we have a good base and it wouldn’t take much to be back in business .

The directors meeting for Monday night is rescheduled to Monday Feb 25 due to the holiday

 

 

Friday 15 February 2019  6:30am

After being in the trails last night, I must say they are better than expected.

With these conditions, please stay off the throttle in corners and when taking off as you spin right to the ice.

Very big crowd for wing night, nice to see.

All groomers will be in the trails today.

 

 

Thursday, 14 February 2019  6:30am

Happy Valentine's everybody.

We have had all groomers on the trails and we are having a real hard time with the light snow on top of top of the hard trails

The snow is pulling off the trails with the drags.

We need sled traffic desperately and lots of it.

We are still out trying to deal with it, but don't expect miracles until we get this packed down.

Please be careful as there could still be icy spots.

So members we need traffic, lets get out and support wing night tonight.

Thanks

 

 

Wednesday, 13 February 2019  6:00am

Finally some much needed snow. All groomers will be out on the trails as soon as the snow stops.

We will do our best to get them in good shape for wing night.

We will update with the progress first thing Tomorrow.

 

 

Sunday, 10 February 2019  8:00am

Groomer was out on the mountain yesterday and will be back out today.

From what I hear the trails were pretty good after the groomer went over them.

Clubhouse will be open for food and gas today.

 

 

Thursday, 07 February 2019  1:45pm

Update on Riverview from the groomer operator

885 groomed up pretty good and is passable, with the little dusting we had this morning lube should be okay.

Trail 15 on hydroline in Turtle Creek very icy.

Trail 15 to Petty is closed due to a logging operation.

Railroad bed in Salisbury is low on snow but passable.

Hillsborough to Mountain good to go.

Two groomers are out on the Mountain now.

Could be the last kick at the can out of Riverview/Salisbury for a while.

 

 

Thursday, 07 February 2019  6:30am

All groomers will be out today trying to loosen up the trails which I think shouldn’t be a problem.

We are going into Riverview, but we are not sure how far we can get depending on snow count.

Wing night is on for tonight, last week was not a real big showing for this.  Lets everybody try and get out and support this event we have as it is great food and a great social evening also.  If you cant get out on your sled drive up and check it out.  Just a hint, try the salt and pepper wings they are awesome.

Lets cross our fingers and hope for the best with this weather system approaching tomorrow.

Sled safe and please remember to stay to the right side.

Thanks

 

 

Sunday, 03 February 2019 12:30pm

Lots of traffic yesterday

Groomers have been out steady and the trails are fantastic .

We had a lot of drifting in areas and we have been out trying to stay ahead of this problem.

Please use caution due to drifting In open areas.

Looks like we’re going to get our weekly warm spell with rain on Tuesday .

Let’s cross our fingers this system moves through quick and doesn’t damage our trails .

 

 

01 February 2019  10:30 am

I left Alma last night and went for wings, pretty good crowd at the Clubhouse.

Hard to believe, but Alma received 10-12 inches of snow on Thursday night and the Mountain around 6 inches.

People leaving Riverview said the 885 is good to go.  We have a water hole on the 15 on the Riverview side of the Turtle Creek bridge.  We are grooming to each side of it until it freezes.

I would rate all trails in the mountain area and Hillsborough as excellent.  Hats off to our operators for doing a fantastic job on the water holes.

Groomers on the mountain are in for a little maintenance today but will be going back out tonight.

Moncton trails have all been groomed once and we are going back out today to double them up.

Speaking of Moncton I keep forgetting to mention the new shelter on trail 34 near Lower Mountain Road.  You can actually see it from the highway when you are driving by.

A big thanks to all the volunteers involved and all the local companies for there donations.

Good job guys.  KW

 

Wednesday, 30 January 2019  8:00 pm

Here’s what I know as of now.

The Mountain is good to go right into Alma.

Hillsborough is good to go.

Riverview 885 is good, talked to a member who was on it after it was groomed and said it was good.

Trail 15 out of Riverview has water problems in Turtle Creek area.  I would not recommend going this way until further notice.

Groomer is heading to Salisbury on the rail bed tonight so we should have a report on that by the morning.

Clubhouse will be open for wing night Thursday night.

Let’s everybody take it easy out there and respect the conditions we are dealt.

We have done our best to repair and cone water cuts so please everybody drive with caution.

See you all for wings tomorrow night.

 

 

Wednesday, 30 January 2019  1:00pm

Three groomers left the mountain this morning going to:

-Hillsborough area

-Riverview -- in the 885 to Trail 15 and back the 34

-Caledonia Mountain area to Alma

The Moncton groomer is down for repairs, but will be back out tomorrow going first to repair a beaver dam wash out.

We will update as soon as we hear from operators on conditions.

I did hear one report from a member that left Riverview and went to the Clubhouse and said it was very passable as long as you use a little caution.

I will also update later on wing night tomorrow night depending on conditions.

 

 

Monday, 28 January 2019,  6:30 am

The groomers have been out on the Mountain all weekend patching up water holes.

Our trails are very much passable and in good shape but extreme caution needs to be used due to water cuts in the trails.

We have done the best we can to mark these with cones.

We groomed in as far as Trail 885 and turned around due to water.

The Moncton groomer was out and said it groomed up good.  He is going back out today to put some pallets in some water holes.

I have not heard of anyone trying to get out of Riverview, but i would imagine there is a lot of flooding on the hydro lines.

Please sled safe.

 

 

Friday, 25 January 2019 6:00 pm

Trails are closed until further notice.  We are going out tomorrow to check and see if we can groom.  We will update as we get reports .

 

 

Thursday, 24 January 2019  6:30 am

Sounds like the rain might be reduced to 20mm.  After today there will be a lot of water laying in low parts of our trails ie.Riverview/Point Park and Moncton.  Any feed back from people out in these areas on Friday would greatly help with our grooming operations.  Also we have a lot of ice damage to trees in the Moncton area which we hope will correct itself today with the warm weather.  As soon as the temperature drops low enough on Friday we will have all groomers out on the trails to see what we have to work with.  We have a fantastic base so lets hope we can save it and carry on with this fantastic year we have had so far.

 

 

Wednesday 22 January 2019 6:00am

Another blast of winter with a lot of water in it which we did not need.

All groomers will be off the trail until we see what this system on Thursday brings which does not look good.

We will update on Friday after this system moves through.

 

 

Friday 18 January 2019  8:00pm

All groomers will be on the trail tonight .

Moncton groomer will be going to Point Park tonight .

I would rate our trails in excellent condition .

Let’s cross our fingers for not too much rain with this upcoming system.

All groomers will be off the trails as soon as it starts to snow.

Next update will be after the storm.

 

 

Thursday, 17 January 2019  9:55am

The Groomer swap has been completed with the Moncton groomer. On the way back he did Trail 15 up to the hydroline towards Petitcodiac

He also tried to build a snow trail beside the plowed road in Nixon.

We have been having problems as per usual with our trail along the Caledonia Road towards Hillsborough/Albert.With the high banks it becomes very hard to groom.  We have got permission from the land owner to groom the open section in this area which will really help us out.  It is very important to stay on the trail in this area or we will loose access.  And to add to this, please stay on the trail in all farmers' fields and private land owners' properties or we will loose these privileges as well.

There will be no groomers on the trails today.

Please try and get out to wing night tonight at the Clubhouse.

Please sled safe.

 

 

Tuesday, 15 January 2019 7:48am

Trails are in good condition everywhere.  All groomers are dispatched and will be on the trails today.

We will be meeting the Moncton groomer and changing machines to bring that one back to the Clubhouse for maintenance.

Please remember Wing Night at the Clubhouse Thursday night.

Thanks and safe sledding.

 

 

Saturday, 12 January 2019 8:30am

After being on the trails yesterday, I would rate them as excellent .

Riverview Main Trail was done last night and one groomer went to Teahans Corner.

Today we will be doing the 885 and side trails on the Mountain -- so please drive with caution .

 

For people coming from out of town using our trails I would like to mention a few drop off points.

 

 Let’s everybody sled safe out there and enjoy these fantastic conditions .

 

 

Friday, 11 January 2019 6:15am

Just what the Doctor ordered, a little fresh snow on top of that wet stuff.  To make it easy most of the trails have been groomed with one pass with the exception of Trail 878 which we are doing today.

Trail 15 to Petitcodiac has a low snow count on the hydro line.

Most of Moncton has been done up to Cole Branch, and we will be back out today doubling up on the trails.

The Clubhouse will be open regular hours today and on the weekend.

All groomers will back on trails today.

Please sled safe.

 

 

Thursday, 10 January 2019 1:45pm

Moncton groomer has been repaired and is back on the trail.

 

 

Thursday, 10 January 2019 10:45am

Update

Moncton groomer is down with mechanical problems,will update as I know more.  KW

 

 

Thursday, 10 January 2019 6:00am

That”s what we needed, biggesr snow fall so far this year.

All groomers will be out today.

-one going in the 885 to Point Park/Riverview

-one going in the 34 to 15 and Salisbury

-one doing top of the Mountain and to Alma

-Moncton groomer will also be on the move today

We will be trying to run 24 hours a day until our trails are in top shape so be careful out there.

Please be patient as the temperature did not drop to where it is good for grooming, and we also have a lot of new snow to deal with.

The temperatures for the weekend definitely looks like good grooming though.

 

 

Wednesday, 09 January 2019  1:15pm

Due to unexpected circumstances the Clubhouse will be closed on Thursday night.

We will re-open Friday for regular hours.

Thanks

 

 

Tuesday, 08 January 2019 10:30pm

One groomer was out on the mountain today; another left the Clubhouse and went in 885 to Riverview and is on the way back to the Clubhouse now.

All groomers will be on the move Thursday morning after the storm.

I was out on the Mountain signing today and a big thanks to Mike Mitchell and Roace Arbeau for their help.

I would rate the trails on the mountain very good with only a couple small washouts near Dons Diner.  KW

 

 

Sunday, 06 January 8:30pm

Trails were good on the Mountain on this weekend with lots of traffic.

All groomers will be leaving in the morning with one going to Hillsborough /Riverside Albert, one to Riverview / Salisbury ,one on the Mountain and the Moncton groomer will be on the move.

Let’s cross our fingers for the upcoming storm on Wednesday.

There is a general meeting Monday Night at 7PM at the Kiwanis building in the Hunters Room which is the building next to the Riverview Arena.

All members are welcome.

 

 

Saturday, 05 January, 2019  7:30am

Hearing reports last night the trails on the Mountain are good to go and are in pretty good shape.

We are expecting a large amount of traffic today so we are going to send a groomer out around lunch time in the Mountain area.

Please drive with caution due to the low snow conditions and the groomer on the trail.

Another reminder to pleeease stay off the throttle when taking off.

Clubhouse is open for food and gas.

Sled safe.

 

 

Friday, 04 January 2019  8:00am

Hearing reports this morning that it is very passable out of Riverview as long as you take your time.  Also hearing out of Hillsborough is very passable.

Saw pics of New Ireland Road and it looked very good.  We do not want anyone to think you cannot get out because we pulled the groomers of the trails.  We figure we are going to do more harm than good with the limited snow and the texture of the snow.  If everybody could try to stay off the throttle a little bit when taking off that would help this situation.

I will be leaving Alma tomorrow and hope to see everybody out there.  Lets enjoy what we have and cross our fingers for the future forecast as it looks good.

The Clubhouse will be open regular hours for food and gas.

KW

 

 

Thursday, 03 January 2019 7:30pm

Almost all trails have had one pass with the groomer except for Trail 885 and Trail 15.

Conditions are not the greatest but passable.  The snow we received is very light and will not pack down, and we definitely need more of it.  The Mountain is somewhat better than in town but please take your time and be careful.  I would not recommend leaving town.

At this time we are pulling the groomers off the trails until we get more snow.

 

Wednesday, 02 January 2019 5:30pm

Three groomers are out with one in Moncton, one in Salisbury / Riverview and one on the Mountain.

Haven’t heard from any operators which is usually a good sign.

 

Wednesday, 02 January 2019

Groomers will be leaving the Clubhouse this morning.

Hopefully we have a trail base left and something to work with.

Moncton groomer will be going out also to see what we have to work with in that area.

We will keep you updated as we hear from our operators on the conditions.

 

 

Clubhouse will be open on Thursday, 20 December 2018 from Noon to 10:00pm and it's WING NIGHT

 

Wednesday, 19 December 2018  6:30am

We made pretty good progress yesterday with groomers making it to Riverview on Trail 15, Levi Road on the 885, Alma, and Hillsborough.

Moncton trails will be completed today, and the groomer also made it to Salisbury .

All 3 groomers will be out on the Mountain today.

 

 

Tuesday, 18 December 2018  8:30am

All groomers will be leaving this morning.  We are trying to do Hillsborough, Alma, Riverview, and Moncton.

Please be patient as we are still dealing with minimal snow, trees down, and plowed roads.
