At the meeting, the board had updates on preparations for this season. The 417 crossing at Panmure will be closed, which will cause the W19 trail to be split into 2 parts. The Interactive Trail Guide will be updated accordingly. A re-route will not be available this season.

Work is underway to get drags, and groomers ready for the season. A startup meeting is set for groomer operators as well.

Efforts on funding for the W1 bridge crossing of the Ottawa River are ongoing.
