Trail Update and Avalanche

Hans retracted the trails at Emerald Lake yesterday and it was wonderful to ski them again. He tried to do the Connector but could not get the machine across the bridge at the 2 km. point—due to the snow melt. That is the end of that bit of trail grooming for this year on the Connector. We hope to trailer the machine and track Kicking Horse again soon but….???? The slide path got dropped on Sunday! We have up to 30’ of snow & debris blocking the summer walking trail. It did reach out onto the lake ice some 30’ as well. Very impressive to actually watch this avalanche happen and now to observe the debris running down the river of snow!

     A sincere “THANK YOU”  to the Management & Staff of Emerald Lake Lodge for the fantastic evening on February 16th 2017,—the 30th Anniversary of
Our Kicking Horse Ski Club!

Such a great success with 130 some skiers attending! Chefs Valerie Morrison & Alistair Barnes and their kitchen staff with all the servers were OUTSTANDING at putting on such a feast! The food, presentation and atmosphere were beyond our expectations and we got so many raving reviews from all the guests.
We also need to acknowledge ALL the staff who helped make this happen—from
administration, front desk, bell staff, housekeeping & maintenance—it is one BIG task to pull this off —especially on the second floor of the lodge!!!
We truly enjoyed the whole 30th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION. Everyone
loved staying overnight at your grand lodge with affordable room and dinner rates you graciously provided to Our Club! You sure made it happen in style for us all.   An opportunity we seldom get to experience and truly appreciate!
30 years is an amazing length of time to work alongside each other !!!
THANK YOU for being our partners—and for helping us along. THANK YOU all the skiers who came out to enjoy it.

One more club event, mark your calendar!!

Hello Dear members,

First, a big thanks to all the participants for our moon light skis this season, it was a great turn out this year! I would like to put together one last event for the club this season and thought I would let everyone know. It will be a 1 hour skate lesson (location to be determined), on March 4th from 2:00-3:00pm. All levels welcome, rental gear is available at Wilson Mountain Sports if needed. Let me know if you have any questions. I hope to see you there.

Until then, happy trails, Jessica.
