I was thinking of taking the train to Moosonee and travelling to James Bay this winter by snowshoe or ski.
Has anybody done this on here? If so, or even if not, any suggestions, tips or advice?

Thank you,

Sam

Sounds ambitious! Are you planning on hot-tenting or cold camping?

I just love the area up there and would like to experience it in the winter. I would be cold tenting it.

Snowshoed from moose river crossing to Moosene 20 some years ago and it was an easy straightforward pull. Expect the rest of the route would also be straightforward as locals would be running snowmobiles packing things nicely.But no idea if the tidal surge is a factor. It wasn’t when we did it.

How many days did that take you?

Any polar bear issues?

No polar bears that far South. Memory is that is 90km from trestle to Moosenee. Four days. There was no new snow and the river is wide and windswept packing the snow for easy walking. About the last 20km snowmobiles travel up river to hidden cabins, allowing you to walk in mucklucks and pull tobbaggan effortlessly

I'm not an expert but I have been (somewhat) up close and personal with polar bears.

Those don't strike me as polar bear tracks, in fact I'm not sure they are even bear tracks.
