Just looking to see if anyone has sledded up to the casino? If so do they have anywhere to store your riding gear or are you walking around with it? Any help would be appreciated. :celebrating:

i personally dont think i'll go back there again. i went there one time with 6 others and as we walked around the corner to the coat check the guy in there said "oh look more annoying snowmobilers" so if my annoying snowmobile money isnt good enough for them then someone else can use it.

we walked out and went to the little gas station restaurant up the road a bit where we were greeted with smiles and fabulous service.

I rode there yesterday for the first time and thought it was great. Lots of room to park the sled, free coat & helmet check. Two for one buffet. It cost me $9 for all you can eat with a beer and tax. Service was good.

My only disapointment was no trail markings to get back over to the Jim longbottom trail. We figured it out though.

It was groomed for the first time on Thursday when it was around 0. About 14 sleds were behind the groomer. There's no base yet. Give it a chance.
We spent about $2000 last year twinning that section from the Brokenhead River to the Powerline.

It's not officially open yet because the bulldozer work has not been done. The Indian Reserve would like us to reroute the trail to the north through the bush so we don't have to run the river and also so it will be away from some of the homes. Problem is that the ground is not frozen enough yet.
We're not sure if we can fit down the existing trail with the machine. We'll likely decide this week what will happen.

From the bridge, run down the river for about a half mile or so (around the bends). Watch for a trail up the bank on your left side. It comes out at the end of a road near some houses. After you come up the bank, turn right on the trail and it will take you straight back to the powerline. The other option is to run the river back to the powerline, but I'm not sure if you can climb the bank this year. Or, you can just run the river all the way back to Jim Longbottom trail and bypass the shelter.

I rode just North of the gas station to the gravel road and went east (right). Follow that road and it takes you to the trail that leads to the power lines.

I saw the cat going down the trail on saturday.

Polaris Dave...just moved to Garson last summer and I have to tell you that you that you are a fine representative for your club and snowmobiling. I just blew off the dust off my sleds, one has been sitting for two years, and I will be getting passes this week and they will be for Brokenhead and I will join the club shortly as well. Now if we could only get you off that Polaris....Good work buddy.
