got a great dumping of snow today (about 15cm) and it's still going. Gonna have to hit up anything past Portage la Prairie and further east to get the good stuff. Going for a rip shortly.

We keep getting a few flakes at a time..The fog is starting to ad up...
Standing stubble between Rose Valley and Archerwill is OK, but many V ditches, that are not even close to being covered..Not really any place to go from there..

another snow advisory for Winnipeg and east. Anywhere from 5-20cm depending on location. If it all pans out on the top end of things we'll have about 35cm total in the last two weeks.

These were taken Dec 23, 2015 north of Hudson Bay in the Wildcat Hills. Trails are rideable but if you only want to boondock and ride powder then stay home, IMO. IMG_2672.jpg

Appreciate the comments above, Hudson Bay has been flooded with sledders over the past several weeks, with no let up in site. Grooming has been proceeding slowly as ice and frost conditions permit and updates will be posted weekly on the SSA web site under Trails and Conditions. One of the questions we get a lot is how much snow is there in the fields, and I have to say as a club we do not really promote field riding outside of the permissions we have for trails to cross private lands to get to crown land in the forestry. There have been problems in the past in fenced areas, private dugouts and near yards and it doesn't do anything good for PR. With the high traffic volumes and limited snow conditions from 20 to 45 cm dependent on the area, the trails that have been groomed do take a beating. The Trail Riders club has 12 shelters in the 680 km system many of which have been recently upgraded, we would appreciate an appropriate level of respect when using the shelters, "Pack it in, Pack it out" is a great motto that needs to be applied more as it is almost impossible to keep up with removal of garbage, cans and bottles in some of the main shelters. We also have had recent discussions with the RCMP who will be doing spot checks in Town and on the Trail system for registrations etc... As a club we welcome and support this as there has to be some level of responsibility and order out there. Registrations are the only way the only way that trails are funded in Saskatchewan and so far that pays for about half the actual cost, the rest is still supported by volunteer efforts. Also remember that all trails are two way traffic and during the week there could be a groomer around any corner, there have been a number of close calls already this year.
That about sums up the serious stuff, so have fun, be responsible and have a safe riding season. Oh yeah, please pass this along to anyone who you think needs to read it.

I understand that Hudson Bay received approx 6 inches, could be more north in the hills and a little less south of town. The new snow will now have fallen on freshly groomed trails which the groomer started on Tuesday. Once this settles the conditions in the area will be fairly decent and I would think that they may be able to groom the southern portion of their trail system to provide additional loops and opportunities for sledders to experience the great area they have.

Just spent 3 days there and they are working hard to get their trails in shape which has been touch considering the amount of traffic they had over the Xmas break and lack of real good snow. That will have changed with the latest snow fall.
