What is it like to the North?? I've got 57 fuckin miles on my new sled and want to ride this weekend. Can anyone North give us a report?? Our cottage on Kushog Lake has basically nothing..

Sorry to start a sled related topic....

East of north bay looking yellow, but you want guaranteed head to New Liskeard/Kirkland lake, tons of guys reporting Cochrane area is great right now. 

Around lake of bays starting to go yellow, I believe we'll see some dwight and dorset stuff go yellow by the weekend as well, possibly. 

I got fucking Pneumonia at Christmas, i have not even started my sled since before then.

We all got knocked on our asses with something here but luckily not that bad.  All the sleds are ready to go thanks to wildbill.

Take care.

I know what the OFSC says, but I want to know what it's actually like.

The Valois in Mattawa says some trails are open there. Around here the rail trail is yellow from Fenelon to Haliburton

I saw that too.  I'd rather hear from sledders instead of a hotel wanting people to come and stay at their place though.  And I don't know how the rail line can even be open after that rain

The rain froze up pretty good and we got 4-6" overnight. Plenty of sleds on there yesterday and today. I went by the trail a few times today and it looked ok. My buddy just got back from Que and put on 1100kms on his new sled. He said trails we excellent but that means you'd have to trailer there

More snow in the forecast. I bet some trails open in the northern area of the MSR and maybe a near north club too. :pc:

Wrong forum for that, the only regulars here are dope smokers and stock exchange watchers :ashamed:

:lol:LOL.

I just had 3 friends return from Cochrane who said the conditions were minty. They posted a bunch of pics on FB and things did look great. Quite the hike to go sledding but I think when they left, those trails were mostly the only ones open during that time?

Personally, I'd check out Ontario Conditions for trail conditions/info as most there update regularly.

Not really interested in that, at least not yet.

Saw some pics on OC and the trails look great.

This past weekends storm has put down a rock hard layer of dense snow here in Wasaga. If we get the snow forecasted this week, I could see it going yellow for the weekend. Groomer has been out as well.  I checked out the beach run yesterday and it’s almost unridiable, most of the locals are using the backroads and parks roads to get around.

I'm crossing my fingers for that as well.  Should be lots starting to open.

Thanks for the info.

We just booked a cabin in Mattawa Thursday and Sat,  riding to Pembroke for Friday night.

If it opens here, I suspect it will be a bit rough, and although we are generally pretty dry, that torrential rain from the weekend will cause some problems.  The forecast is setting up for some system snow, lake effect and cold. I bet a week from now it’ll be a whole new ball game.  Can’t remember a worse year for snow here in at least a decade.

The VRT was groomed and a few have gone by already. It'll be a shitshow on the wknd if some other closeby areas don't open up.
