Took the Little’s out in in the backyard sledding and tubing. About 9” out there. I however would rather be ice skating before snowmobiling.

I was just razzing Lexuslover for no snow. Would much rather have 14 inches of ice. Unless this snow melts and we get a good freeze it will be sometime before trails are open with the swamps and water crossing open.

Our snowmobile club is getting a new groomer this week. I talked to one of the club guys last night and they are going out this week for groomer training and pack trails. No drag. They do several miles of trail that don't cross swamps or water.

I got out a bit today. Trails are by no means ready for a real ride. A lot of the bigger lakes are still open, lots of swampy areas wet as can be. Couple weeks for sure, and we need more snow. Got about 10 ish where I am at, good start anyhow.

Question..
How long does it take for the clubs to get the Trails in riding , safe condition?
Here in Sask trails can be open Dec 1st..But trail marking usually takes 2 weeks when we have the rite amount of snow to be safe..

Depends on the area. In the west metro it's a lot of plowed fields and swamps... so it takes a lot of cold and 1.5-2ft of snow pack to cover up all the obstacles.

the north shore there are wheel sized boulders and a lot of swamps... Same story, takes quite a bit.

Central area a lot of the trails are on forest roads, and it's more sandy less stony, not as many fields. Takes about 6-8" to make things ride-able in that area, pending the swamps are solid.
