Some areas have only had their trails open for 2 or 3 weeks
Snowmobilers and the businesses that rely on their traffic say an unprecedented mild winter in northeastern Ontario has been devastating.
As of this past Friday, most of the trails on the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs online map were red, meaning they are closed due to a lack of snow or mild temperatures.
Gilbert Fortin, governor president of the District 14 Temiskaming-Abitibi Trail Association, said such a mild winter season has been unheard of in his experience.
