Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

an Update on the ASC trails, fresh today.

Dug out the Drag Today.

      Hooked up the Drag today and did Trail D101B from 76 then back to Dwight then back on D101B up to Oxbow. Its -14C and they should set up nicely. Every year I'm so thankful for the Excelent re-design that Garry Evans from Tall Pines did on our Drag. It works flawlessly. The packer pad he designed and built for us and Tall Pines works great also. The Guy is a Genius.

      We didn't change the status of our trails this week as there are still a few wet spots and the other trails we packed will need another pass on them to be able to open.

      We have All heard the term "Short Term Pain for Long Term Gain". Well last year we lost the use of our part of Trail 65 due to logging. I'm happy to say we will benefit from the logging roads they built and will have a new 12.7km awesome trail. It had been packed once and will need to be signed and groomed 1 more time, GPS the route so it can go on the OFSC Interactive Trail Guide. Hope to be able to get to it next. A huge Thanks to Kent and his brother Bruce for the help linking the trail and Kent riding shotgun packing it. It was a long day.

      Next week if the cold temps hold I plan to get to the west side of Dwight on 77-78-79 to get them packed. There are plenty of wet spots on those trails and I see there is sled traffic on them so that should help put some frost into the ground. Just a heads up as we open the remaining trails, the existing open trails won't be groomed that day. We will try to open 1 day and groom the open trails the other day so they don't get out of hand.

      Here is the latest Kawagama TV update from Don Able.

      That's it for now. Good night from Oxtongue Lake.
