Here now staying at LSP. Tons of snow.....tons of snow! But it is raining heavy now, not supposed to last long so I think there will be great sledding here for  a couple weeks if it cools down like it is supposed to. The lakes are bad, so much snow that the pressure has brought slush up to the top,  but they are passable (at the stake lines) for sure. Running from shore to the stake line almost buried my sled in the slush. The clubs are clearly trying to keep things groomed but one of the clubs just north of here had a groomer go down. 

 

here is the problem.......

 

So many sleds. Holy F&%#@.........I have never seen so many sleds. So many brand new sleds and brand new flashy bright suits. Clearly everyone in Ontario decided to get into snowmobiling this year. Our group vowed we will never ever ride on a weekend up here again. Way too may tools who have no clue what they are doing. Its downright dangerous. Idiots. 

 

But to answer your question, the trails are covered in snow, these clubs are working hard and I would say its worth the trip.

Solution. Take a day off and ride mid week. I can see a mental health day coming.

But the amount of sleds is crazy this year.

Rode in the area on Saturday from Birds Creek to Haliburton area and back through LSP.  Parking lot at Birds Creek was almost full by 9:00 am Saturday morning. Traffic was heavy all day.  Met the groomer late in the afternoon heading south from LSP working the rail bed trail. Those guys do an awesome job!
