The following is just a quick update on the project areas to let you all know where we left off and where we are heading for the 2020-2021 season.
Cranberry to Snow Lake Trail
We have made alot of progress! The trail development started in early March in Cranberry Portage. About 80 percent of the work is completed. Infrastructure Team lead, Jim Sloboda has provided a more detail update (with pictures) HERE
Our brand launch originally scheduled for this past March will take place in the fall, providing it is safe to do so. During the launch, we will be promoting: SledMB53 Brand Design and Logo Toques with logo distributed to all committee members Toques available to purchase with proceeds going back to the northern trails SlebMB53 Product Website Community Ambassador Team Snowmobile Friendly Communities Program
