The head of Southeast Sno-Riders says the snow last week was a welcome sight. Mitch Gobeil says their full trail system had been open for a few weeks but conditions were not ideal. He says all that changed last week, noting they got a significant amount of snow across the whole area.

"I think pretty much around six to eight inches and the trails look good. The snow has made a big improvement."

Justin Rempel of the Voyageur Trail Grooming Association, which maintains trails along Highway #59 and area, agrees.

"We've had tonnes of snow lately which is fantastic for snowmobilers. Our trails are looking really, really good. We've got our groomer givin' er seven days a week right now, trying to catch up and get some good trails out there for everybody to use."

Rempel says their entire trail network is now open.

Meanwhile, Gobeil says business has really picked up at fuel and food stops along the trail system.

"It has of late, after the cold snap. The ones that I speak to the most, because I live in South Junction, so I talk to the Co-op located in South Junction, I was told that last Saturday there were 50 snowmobiles parked there at one time. When I was there, it was about 30. So it is obvious the traffic has picked up."
