Will we or won’t we??

We are hard at work getting trails in. And our winter weather has certainly arrived.

We hope you’ve purchased your trail permit by now and chosen to support the Snowroamers.

The big question is will this weather hold up? We know there will be warm spells but the hope is they are brief and there’s not too much rain.

Keep your eyes on the sky and on the OFSC interactive trail guide for the latest trail status info.

Driver Training

Hi folks. Hope you’ve all found ways to beat the heat this summer.
This is just a quick note to let you know that Snowroamers volunteers will be taking a break from The Driving Training program this season. Please refer to the OFSC website and follow links for Driver Training once they post the info, to find a club near you who is providing the course.
Snowroamers thanks all of the volunteers who put so much time and effort into the program. Your efforts established a program that was well known and always filled up with students quickly. You’ve all earned a well deserved rest and we hope you enjoy spending this fall prepping for a great sled season with your family and friends.

Thanks. See you next year.

Well folks time ran out on this poor excuse for a winter over a month ago.
Now it’s time to thank all those people who are so important to what we do.

First up is a big thanks to our Landowners and Conservation Authority partners. Allowing us the privilege of access to your property is one of the things that makes organized trail snowmobiling so special. Without a doubt you have some of the most beautiful countryside in Ontario and without your valued cooperation we have no trails.
Big thanks to every single volunteer who cut a tree, pounded a stake, hung a sign or helped out in other way. Without you we have no trails.
Big thanks to the Snowroamers Executive who attended the meetings and participated in the discussions and voted on the motions. Without you we have no trails.
Big thanks to the Huronia Southern Zone grooming association and to the OFSC for providing our groomer and the funding to run it when we got that little bit of snow. Without you we have no trails.
Big thanks to our permit buyers who year after year continue to support us with your permit purchase. We do our best to try and get you safe, fun trails while respecting our landowner and conservation authority partners. We are grateful for your support and for riding safe, smart and responsible whenever we do get trails available for you. We hope you continue to support us because Without you we have no trails.

Finally, here’s great big giant middle finger to Nature. You screwed us over again this year big time!! We don’t know why you’ve decided to be so mean to south Ontario, but guess what? We’re a stubborn bunch us sledders, we’ll be back next year with stakes, signs and a groomer ready to roll.

Have a great summer everyone. Give your ride the end of season treatment and tuck it away for a nap.

We’re back. Sort of.

Well it’s been a less than stellar winter. We were off to a decent start and things we’re looking great on January 9th and then well….you know what went wrong.
But we’ve got some precious white gold and it’s thick and heavy. The B202 got a groomer pass and it looks ok.

Here’s the scoop. The B202 will be set to LIMITED status in the morning. We want the track that the groomer left today to setup overnight. It’s supposed to drop to -16 by the morning.
If people go out and roost it up now, than that’s what will set. So PLEASE STAY OFF until we pull the switch and go limited.
The reason for LIMITED is that, once again we must deal with a very icey base and thin snowpack on top.
Riders who grab it ‘n gun it will obliterate that thin snow layer. So please exercise care with the Happy Flapper..
We can’t state this enough, use EXTRA CARE when on the trail.
We’ve faced similar conditions before and been safe and got some good days on the railline.
Your cooperation and patience while we try to make a silk purse from this sow’s ear of a winter we’ve been handed is greatly appreciated.
Ride safe, ride smart, ride responsible.

Busy but quiet

We are moving ahead with trail installs but it is slow work due to the extended corn harvest this year. We’ve got small teams going out and just hopscotching over fields of corn. When things open up and we need groups of people to head out we’ll be in touch with volunteers on our contact lists. Until then here are some pics of early season prep work.
