November 23, 2017 Update: No new snow and the rain last night and warm temperatures (4.5C) have drastically reduced the snow at the stadium and lower elevation. Early season skiing had been quite good on the packed trails but has deteriorated. We did some ginzug grooming with skidoos Tuesday but no tracks set yet. We groomed Larch Hills Rd. to Cec Cabin, Alder Lane, Larch Lake Loop, Sky trail and Reino’s. No reports of conditions yet today.
Non groomed trails: The Thicket was cleared Sunday but needs a bit more snow. A section of Caribou Memory is affected by snow plowing from just above the junction with The Thicket down to the next road junction. They will be logging until about mid December.
Anyone using the Chalet can help Pauline by bringing in some wood for the stove from behind the Chalet. Please take care and contact us if there are hazard trees and blockages. You can contact 250 832-9804 or firstname.lastname@example.org . This trail report will be updated as needed.
Winter 2017 -18
A new and updated geo referenced Snow Shoe trail map is on-line – see link below.
Our trails are volunteer and user maintained. Please carry pruners or a small folding saw with which to assist us in trail maintenance.
All last year’s snow shoe trails have been brushed and had summer windfalls removed and signs checked and replaced if needed. However, recent snowfalls may have bent small trees onto our trails. Please help us all by removing any that are obstructing your trail.
Snow in the trees is thin but trails are open. Boots only, are adequate at this time.
