Please note that these trails are 100% groomed by volunteers.  Grooming depends on snow conditions, weather, volunteer availability and equipment functioning (they do break down!)

Groomers

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.

 

ROKON

In 2016, the HMBA added a Rokon to it's inventory.  The Rokon will allow for easier year-round maintenance and is also a great for grooming trails when the snow isn't too deep.

Make sure you high five our volunteer groomers out there!

Volunteer dedication!


Winter Grooming is 100% run by HMBA Volunteers!!
