Yes! Snow is so deep even the groomer had trouble. Big thankyou to the Rainy River crew that put in extra volunteer hrs this week to run the West end groomer back to Emo, allowing us to finish the rest of the trails for the weekend. The heavy snow is hard on equipment and both groomers need repairs. Depending on parts availability we may be late getting out next week😞

New place to look forward to on the North Western Ontario Snowmobile Trails Assoc. - Nwosta Wilderness Loop!
Just wanted to let all the members know that The Dryden Ski Club is up and running, Wednesday evenings 5/9 and Saturday/sundays 10/4 and hoping for every other Friday evening starting January 17th. The Dryden ski club welcomes all members travelling the Highway 601 trails to stop by for coffee, tea, hot chocolate, pancake breakfasts, burgers, hot dogs, cold drinks and daily specials any time during our operational hours. We know it can be a pain to have to sled all the way to town for a late lunch or coffee, and are hoping to become a winter stop for any and all sledders.
The Dryden ski club is working on getting new signs to better share our location along ski hill road off the 601 for NWOSTA members not wanting to venture all the way to town for a hot drink and lunch, And or a hot supper on our evening hours. Chalet is always warm and welcoming!!
