We are already getting calls about the opening of ATV trails in Jackman. Even though this winter has not been the coldest or snowiest, This is still Jackman. We do indeed still have snow out there, mostly at the higher elevations, and our lakes are still frozen.

Now, normally, the club tries to get our trails open by Memorial Day weekend. (the rule of thumb up here)

Shall I continue with the oddities or do you get the

1st Jackman trail report for 2016

December 28, 2015 | 0 comments

We did get 8 inches of snow in town this weekend. BUT trails are not open yet. This was our first good snow followed by very cold temps so trail opening depends on how much snow we get this week (12" plus in the forecast) and the temperatures.

The club has started some panning of trails but they will not post open trails until after this next
