 Washed-out trail sections a concern

 

CORNER BROOK — Snowmobilers riding in the areas near Lundrigan Drive and behind Marble Mountain are being asked to use caution as recent heavy rains have washed out some parts of the trail.

Donnie O’Keefe of the Newfoundland and Labrador Snowmobile Federation said he believes riders have tried to skim across the wet areas on the trails. He has heard about riders being dislodged from their machines in the areas in question.

“I think they might have been trying to ‘run the water,’” he said. “I’ve been told you can get around the wet spot (near Lundrigan Drive) by sticking close to the tree lines, but we can’t put a groomer back out there until we’re 100 per cent confident there is no water ... because a groomer would go right down through it.”

He said mild weather over the weekend caused the section behind Marble Mountain to develop wet spots.

“I’m aware of a couple of wet spots up there over the years,” he said. “In the last couple of days we’ve had a lot of snow that is now potentially covering up dangerous gaps or sinkholes, so we’re advising caution.”

A quick survey of several riders showed the trails between Corner Brook and Deer Lake have slight gaps, but nothing too serious.

O’Keefe said the federation is advising snowmobilers to check its website and Facebook page to ensure which trail sections have been groomed and when.
