All of Oro Medonte has received about 4 inches of fresh powder last night and will continue to get another 3-4 today if the forecast is correct. The weather Tuesday – Thursday has made the trails pure ice at the moment and the climbs, especially with new snow, will be next to impossible for groomers. Groomers will not be able to do much until we get milder weather (which looks like Saturday and Tuesday of next week).
We will assess the options over the next few days to see what can be done.
It has been a difficult winter to say the least. Just when we get a nice trail laid down we have a melt. The last one has really done a number on the trails.

As you plan your spring and summer outings, Cross Island Farms invites you to come tour their 102 acre organic farm, complete with goats, cows, pigs, wildlife, and an Edible Forest Garden containing hundreds of varied, edible plant species. They are located in the gorgeous Thousand Islands Region of New York State, only 2 hours from Ottawa by car.
The Great Lakes Seaway (bicycling) Trail in the U.S. extends around the Southern border of Lake Ontario, and along the St. Lawrence River shoreline. It brushes right past the bridge to the island, and they are only 1.6 kilometers from that bridge.
There are many quiet roads on the island to bike on, and they are located only 1.6 kilometers up the road from one of the largest state parks in the United States, where you will find many biking trails; some running through the trees, while others edge alongside the rocky Saint Lawrence.
See attached flyer for more details.
