Finally cold enough to set a track on the ICE to the Horse Trail from the Boathouse! ¬†Also a sled track to the back of the lake on the ICE for s/s. ¬† The Donation Box Stand got moved to the Back of the Lake ! ¬†And Emerald Trails & Connector got refreshed! AND– Joe found the bench at the upper creek (9 o’clock position). ¬†It was a GOOD Day !!!

Avalanche hazard

In the spirit of safety….and due to the extreme avalanche hazards throughout the Rockies–the Ski Club has been encouraged to create a trail across Emerald Lake on the ice/slush …….from the Boathouse to the Horse trail….this ¬†year–the weather ¬†has developed extreme slush and water on top of the ice at Emerald lake. Joe has agreed to try to pack the first few passes on the lake.. ¬†We will see how it goes???? ¬† SKI SAFE …

Trail update–Jan 9th

Yesterday–Joe packed and track set The CONNECTOR TRAIL for the first time! ¬†Caution–it is a deep track and only the first pass through with the groomer. ¬†–Let’s call it ADVANCED until it gets smoothed out. ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† He also tracked the Tally-Ho and Kicking Horse trail. ¬†Lot’s to ski! ¬†Enjoy ¬† ¬†EMERALD TRAILS ¬†are still quite good–except for slush on the ice.

OUPS…

Joe is working the Tally Ho all the way down the Kicking Horse Trail ¬†right now! ¬†Parks Canada will do avalanche control on the Burgess slide path which could runs ¬†across the “Connector Trail” –(at about 3 kms. from Emerald Lake). ¬†So hopefully we will be able to ¬†open that trail soon. ¬† Skee ya later!

4 PM…SORRY–HE DID NOT MAKE IT OUT ON THE KH TRAIL YET. ¬†THEY DID WORK SOME OF THE CONNECTOR INSTEAD–AND IT IS NOT COMPLETE YET……

EMERALD TRAILS ARE EXCELLENT!
