Received a report last night from a Water Bomber pilot that they have run into cases ( in the Whiteshell) where people are flying drones in the area of the fires & even had a case where a float plane entered the flight path of one of the water bombers. In either case it will CAUSE THEM TO STOP OPERATIONS.


We don’t need Parks or any other authority to tell us that resources must be stretched extremely thin at the moment with the number of fires throughout the Province – indeed throughout Western Canada & NW Ontario. We MUST do our part.


If you are on the water and water bombers are circling above or are scooping water:

move quickly and safely towards shore

stay near the shore

give crews room to work.

Trails are closed – respect those closures

Campfires are forbidden

Back country travel not allowed

Parks continues to give us regular updates (we can’t thank them enough). Going forward, to allow Parks personnel the opportunity to focus on the job at hand, we’ll only report on new fires or significant changes in the situation on the fires that have occurred so far this week (Camp Lake – north of Falcon, Betula, Nutimik, Big Whiteshell x 2)

Whiteshell Snowmobile clubLooking for a Fulfilling Opportunity?WE WANT YOU! We all know that snowmobile trails don’t just happen. It takes resources and many volunteer hours to maintain 13,000 kilometers of snowmobile trails in the areas of signing, grooming, equipment maintenance, shelter upkeep, etc. Why volunteer? People volunteer for many different reasons. For some, it’s to help others and give back to the community and club. For others, it is to build self-confidence, gain personal growth and learn new skills. We know it’s important to get outside during winter and enjoy all that Manitoba has to offer. Giving your time lends you a sense of well-being and connectedness to others and certainly fights boredom. It allows you to share your talents, abilities, and experiences while at the same time learning new skills from others. And don’t forget volunteers can have fun and enjoy themselves by making new friends. To volunteer please contact Snoman at or your local club today! ... See MoreSee Less
