Just a reminder to all members about the SENBSA Hill Climb at Poley Mountain this Saturday 07 April 2018.

This is a major fundraiser for our club which helps with grooming and maintaining trails.

We are short a few volunteers for the staging area and especially the tear down at the end of the day.

Anyone that could lend a hand please call Lee Steeves at 850-3014.

 

06 April 2018 (9:30pm)

Groomers are out again on the Mountain tonight.

Last night one groomer made it to Nixon Road and to the Levy Road before it ran out of snow.

We had a groomer on Trail 864 towards Albert Mines and discovered a 4 wheeler on our trails.  Just a reminder 4 wheelers are not allowed on the trails until after April 15.  This is the second time in a couple weeks of a report of this in the last couple weeks.  Anybody seeing 4 wheelers on the trails before Apr il 15th please get the plate # and report it to SENBSA or  to Off Road Enforsement and stiff fines will be applied.

It’s a shame one or two people have to ruin this.

To all our members,please get out and enjoy some spring snowmobiling.

 

 

 

06 April, 2018 (12:00pm)

Wow,look at the temps.  We are continuing to groom as long as the temperatures stay like this.

Trails are very passable on the Mountain and it is probably the best spring snowmobiling we’ve had in a long time.

Just heard that the trails to Poley have been groomed and very passable also.  Lets get out and support this fantastic event.

The Clubhouse will be open for food and gas.

 

 

 

05 April 2018 (830am)

Three groomers left the Clubhouse this morning to see what we can do with the trails.  Hopefully there is not too much damage.  We will update later today when we hear from the operators.

Wing night is still on the go for tonight so let's everybody try and get out.

 

 

 

03 April 2018 (9:00pm)

Trails on the mountain were in excellent shape today.

Hopefully we will survive the upcoming weather.

We have groomers out tonight doing Sweet Mountain, Trail 878, and the mountain area.

 

 

 

03 April 2018 (6:30am)

Two groomers were out on the mountain last night returning to the Clubhouse this morning.

Heard reports the trails were excellent yesterday.

The Clubhouse will be open for gas and food today.

 

 

 

01 April 2018 (10:00am)

Three groomers are just getting back to the Clubhouse.

One was out to Teahans Corner and back through all trails on the mountain.

The second groomer went as far as the shale pits in Hillsborough.

The third went as far as the Hardscrabble shelter and was running out of snow and encountering water on the trail.  This will be the last trip in this direction .

Two groomers will go out again tonight when the temperature drops.

Clubhouse will be open.

 

 

 

31 March 2018 (9:00am)

Happy Easter to everybody .

Looks like the temperatures are going to cooperate with us for the next 3 nights.

I am hearing the trails are still good .

Three groomers will be on the go tonight as soon as the temperature drops.

Two will be on the mountain with the third heading to Salisbury and Riverview as far as the snow allows for grooming.

 

 

 

29 March 2018 (3:00pm)

Dont forget about wing night tonight at the Clubhouse.

The owner of the blueberry field on Trail 864 called and was very upset about people being on his field.  This is an absolute no no.  This trail will be shut down the next time this happens.

Please respect our land owners.

Grooming will take place again as soon as the temperature drops.

Anybody that can get out and bust open some trails this will be a big help.

The Clubhouse is open for gas and food.

Sled safe.

We have had some depressing comments on the trails on the weekend about smoking in the shelters.  People have called directors and also commented to on website about this issue.

The Board of Directors voted last year on a no smoking policy in our shelters and would appreciate that everybody obey this policy.

Thanks,SENBSA Board Of Directors

 

 

 

19 March 2018 (1:30pm)

Wow, what a busy weekend on our trails.  Hats off to our grooming crew for a fantastic job!

Not much to say about trails as they are all groomed and in great shape.

All groomers will be on the trail today.

Just left Alma and went to the Clubhouse -- met unit 2 at Teahans Corner and transmission problem is fixed.  Trails are grooming up real good, looks like winter wonderland back here.

There is a washout half way down the Kent Road -- it is marked with a cone so be careful.

 

 

 

11 March 2018 (10:00am)

Well after being on the trails yesterday I must say that’s the best it’s been this year.

All groomers are out again today.

We got a late start to Riverview but did get to Point Park and Trail 15.

Groomers today will be doing Moncton, Riverview, Hillsborough, and the mountain.

 

The Clubhouse is open for food and gas so please drop in and enjoy some great food.

Please be careful as there will be washouts out there .

Clubhouse will be open for gas and food.

Midnight poker run will be next Saturday and we will update the schedule for that this week .

Please enjoy what we have and don’t expect miracles as this is far from perfect grooming conditions.

There will be one groomer on the trails tonight trying to fix up some washouts and loosen up some snow for tomorrow; drive with caution   

Also the Clubhouse will be open. Happy trails

 

 

 

14 February 2018 (1:00 pm)

Two groomers out today.

One going near Don's Diner and doing top side of Mountain.

Second doing Hayward and Sweet Mountain trail.

 

Once again be careful and don't expect miracles.

 

 

 

14 February 2018 (8:30 am)

One of the groomers was out yesterday doing the trails on top of the Mountain.

Trails seem to be not too bad considering the weather we have had.

 

Please drive with caution as some places are wind swept and there is the odd washout

 

 

 

01 February 2018 (8:30 am)

We have been out with groomers trying to develop a trail base.  The snow we received is very light and has no bottom to it.  At present time we do not recommend being on the trails.

Lets hope this system coming has more snow in it than rain.

 

 

 

11 January 2018 (11:00am)

As of yesterday all of our trails were groomed and some with multiple passes.

The upcoming weather does not sound very good.  Let's hope this changes.

Lisa will be having wing night at the Clubhouse tonight starting at 4pm.

Let's try to get out and support this event so we can make it a Thursday night event. 

 

 

 

09 January 2018 (9:00am)

All trails are looking pretty good for the snow we have.

Our operators have done a great job.

As of right now all Moncton Trails are done.

Today we are grooming Trails 878, 885 and doing a loop around the mountain to touch it up.

 

 

 

06 January 2018 (9:00am)

A couple issues yesterday but not too bad for the first day out.

Clubhouse to Point Park and Trail 15 is groomed.

The mountain is about 80 percent done.  We had a track issue and had to go back before we were completely done.  Going back out tonight to finish.

Hillsborough did not get done as we had an alternator issue.  We will be going back out this morning to finish.

The Moncton groomer made it as far as the Ontario Road and parked for the night.  He will be going back out today with assistance of members doing signing in this area.

 

 

 

05 JANUARY 2018  (8:30AM)

Not at all what we were hoping for.

Two groomers will be leaving the Clubhouse this morning.

One heading into Trail 15 and then to Riverview.

Second one is heading around the mountain and then heading towards Alma as far as he can go depending on snow.

This afternoon one will be heading to Hillsborough and one to Moncton.

We ask everybody to be patient as we will do the best we can with the snow we have to work with.

 

 

 

26 DECEMBER 2017

Merry Christmas and a happy new year to all of our members.

Things are looking good if we could only get one more good storm we would be off and running.

Ground is frozen,groomers and drags are ready,we just need snow.

There has been a lot of trail work this year  ie.signing,bridge building,culverts ,and ditching.

Many thanks to the members that put a lot of long hours into this.

And let's not forget about the beautiful new Kent Road shelter.

Again many thanks to the members that put a lot of hard work into this project.

Let's hope for snow and hope to see you on the trails soon.
