Hello from Voyageur Country snowmobiling for winter of 2021-2022
We are working on all area trails. I will try and give the latest updates and what still needs to get done to be ready for the season.
Here at Ash River/Kabetogama area, we had a great day of trail clearing on Dec. 4. A large turnout of volunteers was wonderful and a lot of trail clearing was done. We had 40+ people working and had a nice pizza party at the Ledge after the work. That is the good news. However, with the recent warm weather, rain and then wet heavy snow, we have lots of work to do all over again as we have lots of brush back on the trails. If you are in the area and looking to help, Riding all trails and cutting brush and clearing will hasten the time that we can get to ride the trails. Right now, many parts of the trails are barely passable. Things need to get cleaned up before we can get a groomer out there. We will have a machine on the trails this week and I will keep folks updated as the work gets done.
In the Area of Elephant Lake and Crane Lake, they have the same issues. They will have a machine working on the trails this week and groups will be heading out of Melgeorge’s and Crane Lake on Wed and Thurs Morning. If you can help, check with them. The Orr trails are pretty much ready to go.
Groomers have not been on any trails as of yet, and the Park Service has not staked the Lake Trails, and portages have not been cleared. Riding is not ready here as of yet.
Again, if you can get out on trails and bring saws and help clear that would be great. I will keep this site updated as we move forward and get things ready to RIDE!
