Dec. 19

Conditions on the lake are "adequate" for snowmobiles with what little snow we have.  The S trail from Otter lake to Malachi was reported by Hydro guys as terrible and they would be going back to where they were parked at Pelican Pouch by road.  For our approach, we have been able to shovel just enough snow to cover the rocks.  No markers yet due to lack of snow to sufficiently pile around the markers.  We have been staying on the west trail and along the east shore in the S lake although tracks were observed more down the middle in both lakes.   The road is easily passable with the truck in 4×4, your experience may differ.
