The BSGSA executive would like to thank its members for their patience as we made arrangements to have the Cold Brook Parking Lot plowed for this season. Things will be cleared up in the next day or so!
And just as a reminder - please ensure that you have a Parking Lot Pass visible in your wind shield to assist us in covering off this expense, among others.
Failure to have your pass visible may result in your vehicle being towed, at your expense.
Parking Lot Passes are available at M&F Motorsports and GNR Recreation for $10 - proof of NLSF Trail Pass is required at time of purchase.
Please note - these are BSGSA funds which are used by the BSGSA to plow the Parking Lot and conduct any seasonal maintenance. We appreciate your support!
To all members,
It might not have seemed like a very long summer but what we had was enough its just about time to get back on the snow!
At the NLSF Annual General Meeting, held October 3-4 in Deer Lake, an announcement was made that the Federation would be placing three new groomers in the fleet and re-aligning the use of many others. This is great news for our area as it means we will be receiving a much newer model than the one we currently have had since grooming began on the island. We had hoped for a brand new machine, however once our wide tracks are re-installed on this newer machine, it will be much more effective and reliable than our current groomer!
For the past couple of weeks our team of volunteers and our groomer operator have been working to get our trail system ready for the winter. They have been busy with posting trail signage, doing bridge repairs, heated shelter upgrades/repairs and brush cutting to widen some trails that have started to close in with alders. We hope to have everything up and running in the next few weeks but as they say, many hands make light work so if youre interested in volunteering, please let us know by contacting us through the website or our Facebook page (see below).
Since the NLSF Annual General Meeting a number of regional associations have been given new grooming directives. That means for the 2015-2016 season the grooming and designation of BSGSA trails will be as follows:
The BSGSA will not be grooming west of the Main Gut Bridge in Stephenville Crossing.
- Cold Brook Road (Primary Trail) Cold Brook Parking Lot to Hynes Pond Map
- Camp 38 Trail (Primary Trail) Cold Brook Parking Lot to Gallants via Cold Brook Road and Camp 38 trail
- Rail Bed (Secondary Trail) Cold Brook Parking Lot to Gallants via the Rail Bed, and along the Rail Bed through Stephenville Crossing to the Main Gut bridge.
- Kippens Trail (Secondary Trail) Cold Brook Road to Kippens
- CB7 & Round Pot (Secondary Trail) Cold Brook Road to Camp 38 Trail via CB7 and Round Pot
- Town of Stephenville (Secondary Trail) Cold Brook Parking Lot to Stephenville via designated route.
- M&F Motorsports/GNR Recreation (Secondary Trail) Cold Brook Parking Lot to dealerships via Hansen Highway ditch.
If you have any questions or concerns about grooming operations, please contact the NLSF Head Office in Deer Lake at (709) 635-4395.
