EPISODE 4: Trail-Groomer Rescue

October 30, 2017

It is true.  North West River is at the end of the open road.  The furthest point in Northeastern North America one can drive in an automobile.  There are 6 more Labrador communities further north from us that are only accessible by airplane, boat or snowmobile. No highways here.  About 35 years ago a 20 foot wide trail was cut thru the boreal forest leading north.  The surface was never grubbed off and as a result we must wait for Mother Nature to dump about 4 feet of snow on the ground before it becomes passable.  But boy… when the trail gets groomed, look out!  The Trans Labrador Snowmobile trail becomes a 24/7 snowmobile highway leading to the north coast of Labrador.  These large groomers become a lifeline as travel on a groomed snowmobile trail is a safer alternative than ice travel.
