Although the health unit for the area around North Bay closed down the snowmobile trails, it’s not expected to happen here in the Sault and surrounding area.
Sault Trailblazers is the organization in charge of trails in the area. They note that currently their over 500 kilometers of trail are closed.
Once open, they do not anticipate Algoma Public Health asking for the trails to be closed here.
“We have not received any direction from APH to close our trails which in fact aren’t even open yet. The only closure of the OFSC trails has occurred in the North Bay Health Unit district,” said a representative for Sault Trailblazers. “There were concerns with southerners travelling to the area which is not expected in our area due to the distance to travel and the restrictions on reserving hotel rooms.”
Snowfall amounts have not been significant enough to safely open the trails. The Trailblazers are hoping this recent snowfall changes that.
“If conditions continue to improve as forecasted, we hope to start packing trails soon with hopes that we can start opening some trails over the next week or so.”
