The Husky remains out of service for a hydraulic line repair. We are awaiting the delivery of factory made parts to complete the repair.

The following trails have been groomed for skate with our back up snowcat, the BR180, which is only set up for skate grooming.

The classic trails have not been removed and remain in fair to good condition. Classic tracks will be monitored and re-set with the snowmobile and tracksetter once they start to deteriorate.
