I was there on the weekend. Trails were fair to middling. There were some very icy corners, and some sections of trail had some considerable "melt off" areas on the sides of the trail.

There were 3 separate accidents while I was there (4 hours total), and the last required an Ornge chopper for transport. Lucky that they had 3 OPP cruisers (with sleds) and an Emergency Services truck stationed there for the day.

Can't say the trails were that bad to have caused that unfortunate outcome. They were at capacity for sleds (100), but that is a pretty high %. My first time visiting, and probably my last.

Drive safe if you go....
Regards,

If you are not running studs and good carbides, don't go, imho.
