Well i rode to grand beach a few weeks ago same thing but more like 2/3 good. Was out in lac du bonnet this last weekend and it was alright.The main trails were beat pretty good but there was a poker derby on. The ditches around home are quite full. It's just been like that the last few years here, having to look for snow. I am going to go to the Kenora area next weekend to see if i can find some there. It seems it's a part of snowmobiling now.

Sunday, I rode from Birds Hill to Lac du Bonnet and I thought it wasn't that bad. We were supposed to go to Bird River but had a late start. Riding around Lac du Bonnet we went down the side trails (shorter, but not as popular) and we thought they were in very good shape.

Im planning on heading to Bird River this weekend (I hear it's great), maybe even pass through parts of Ontario to find more.

Apparently there setting up radar runs at Falcon Lake this weekend too. 60% chance of snow on Saturday ![:0]

bigwilly, I havent gone there yet this year but I hear it is pretty lame for snow. The radar runs are only 660 ft so kinda pointless unless your geared for that.

Went for a rip last night but couldnt see a damn thing due to the strong wind. Still had to go out though :p

we rode the fire guard roads south of Richer
and it was great . The only badriding was on the marked trail . The only problem with this is that it is very easy to get lost.
The trails up the trans Canada were groomed
and looked very good . We didn't ride it as we were meeting at Richer .

Just got back from the Kenora area the trails BLOW!!! the posted speed limit is 50kph but you r lucky if you can do 15, terrible! So we didn't get to ride in falcon lake but the trails looked freshly groomed. We are just going to trailer there next weekend. lots of snow on the lakes though. HAd a blast put on 250 miles.
