3/1/2017: URGENT! SNOWMOBILERS STAY OFF LAKES AND PONDS !
Lakes and Ponds are unsafe in the Cranberry Lake Mountaineers Snowmobile Club's area ! Edges of Lakes and Ponds are open water, spring holes are open and channels are open and even if they re-freeze they will NOT be thick enough to support a Snowmobile !
SNOWMOBILERS STAY OFF LAKES AND PONDS !
St Lawrence County trails are CLOSED.

Effective Friday, March 3, 2017, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Region 6 is closing snowmobile trails and seasonal access roads on Forest Preserve, State Forest, and Conservation Easement Lands in St. Lawrence County due to warm weather and lack of snow. The lack of snow is dangerous to snowmobilers and damaging to snowmobiles. 

 In addition, any motorized or motor vehicle use on the trails and seasonal access roads can damage the trails, roads, and natural resources. The St. Lawrence County Snowmobile Association closed all snowmobile trails in St. Lawrence County on February 20, 2017.

Seasonal access roads, even those not opened to snowmobiling this winter due to the lack of snow, will remain closed during the spring mud season. DEC will reopen the roads once any necessary maintenance is completed and the roads are dry enough to safely handle motor vehicle traffic. Motor vehicle use during the spring mud season will damage roads and result in road opening delays.

Special Notes:

It is important to note that we never recommend riding on lakes or ponds. Lakes and Ponds are not part of our snowmobile trail system.

Throughout the trail, please use caution and watch for exposed rocks, icy corners, brush and current logging activity.

Be respectful of Groomers. Stop, pull over and go slow if passing.  Give the groomer the right of way. The operators are all volunteers who donate their time so you can have good trails.

For food gas and lodging locations, see Business section on Website and Map.

Snowmobile Trails are open December 15 or when we have at least 12 inches of snow thru April 1.

Thank you for riding our trails. Ride Safe and See you on the Trail!

Terms & Definitions for Trail Report:

Excellent- Smooth Trails you don’t want to miss!

Good- Could be Bumps or Moguls in the corners only. Straight-always are good.

Fair- Bumps or Moguls in the corners and some straight-always. Grooming may be limited by temperatures and snow conditions.

Marginal- Minimum coverage of snow and maybe bare spots. Due to warm temperatures or snow conditions we are unable to groom.

Trails Closed- Trails are closed at this time due to no base coverage. We need about 12 inches of fresh snow to create a 3 inch base to open the trails. Latest conditions will be posted here as well as through our email alerts. Please stay off the trails until you see a message on our website or face book page that they have opened.

Corridor Trails are typically groomed at least 3 times a week. Secondary Trails are groomed 2 times a week.

We are working on giving an accurate grooming and trail condition report. The Trail Condition terms and definitions that we will use in our reports should help with an accurate common understanding of trail conditions. The purpose of the report is to help snowmobilers make decisions about their trips and to insure their safety. The report will be expanded as sources provide accurate information.
