Snowmobile trails closed after ‘brutal’ season 

Local snowmobile trails are closed. 

Fluctuating temperatures and recent rainstorms have lead snowmobile clubs across the region to pull the pin on the season, according to Parry Sound District Snowmobile Club President Barry Wilkinson.  

He says that the clubs’ groomers were driven to their summer storage spots on Monday, officially marking the end of the season. 

“There is no base left. If you look around there is not enough snow on the ground to do anything significant. Especially with the rain and flooding,” he said. “Unfortunately, we are done.” 

Wilkinson said that while volunteers worked hard to get trails useable, they didn’t have much to work with this winter. Mild weather conditions ended the season before it had really begun.

“It was probably two weeks long on the Seguin trail, maybe three weeks, but for anybody else open it was hardly more than a week. It was brutal, and it was like that for probably 70 per cent of the province.” 

Now that the season is over, officials are asking riders to respect landowners and stay off the trails.
