The Hinton Mountain Bike Association (HMBA) will be grooming select trails in the Hinton area (West of Happy Creek) for non-motorized activities such as cross country skiing, snowshoeing, bicycling, hiking, dog walking and trail running.
A specialized groomer, the same type used by nordic centres, is towed behind a small snowmobile . The groomer is 30 inches (76 cm) wide, ideal for creating winter trails for our non-motorized recreationalists.
Grooming is a slow process, the snowmobile runs approximately 5 kms/hr towing the groomer as it rolls and packs the trail down.
Once groomed, it will take a few hours to harden before it is ready for use. Grooming will be done mostly at night when there are less trail users. This will give a better chance for the snow on the trail to set.

Winter Grooming is 100% run by HMBA Volunteers!!
