Western Newfoundland Groomer Details

2016-2017 Season……Grooming will commence when snow conditions permit!

 

PUBLIC ADVISORY!

The Bay St. George RCMP is advising snowmobilers and outdoor enthusiasts of dangerous snow conditions in the Lewis Hills are.

A press release from the detachment Thursday evening says possible avalanche conditions exist in the area, as well as in the area known as “The Bowl.”

Aerial views of the location indicate large amounts of overhanging snow. Warm temperatures combined with large amounts of rainfall have drastically changed the snow conditions.

Anyone entering into these areas are advised to use extreme caution.

 

ATTENTION SNOWMOBILERS!

 

Corner Brook Pulp and Paper Limited would like to inform all public that wood trucks are operating in four areas of our province for the 2017 winter months.

The operational areas are;

  • Riverside (Birch Ridge) – located off Sop’s Arm highway North of Hampden
  • Camp 185 Road – located near Gallants Hill, East of White’s Rd
  • Camp 34 Road – located off route 411 near West Port Road on the Baie Verte Peninsula
  • Southern Pond – located on the Baie Verte Peninsula

Anyone planning to snowmobile in these areas is advised not to travel on any of the plowed roads on their snowmobile and to park pickups and trailers only in areas designated for public parking.

 Corner Brook Pulp and Paper would like to thank all snowmobilers, firewood cutters and general public for their cooperation and remember to drive safe.
