Getting close to having a track…

Today–Joe packed a few times around the loop of the Fan and the Horse Trail too–after cutting a whole bunch of trees. The ice to the Horse Trail is packed also. NO TRACK SET TRAIL YET–till we get more snow but it is somewhat skiable….use caution! Tomorrow –he is hoping to work the same on the Kicking Horse Trail.

The Yoho Valley Road is still good for a nice ski. Enjoy the new snow.

First Track Set Trail for Field area

Joe did the TAK FALLS ROAD today–packed wide and double track on either side. “Cold as a bugger” he said–but it came out pretty good! He also stationed the track setters at the Kicking Horse Fire Road cause that will be the next one to work on. Go get ’em!

Greetings skiers,

    A short update….2 bridges got put in by our track setter Joe yesterday—Emerald River and Kicking Horse Flats.  It is now colder out and maybe our snow will start accumulating.  

    Meanwhile…walking around Emerald is easy & very well packed.  The lake is freezing up—but beware…not safe!

    Joe will bring out all the track setting equipment in the next few days and hopefully take the sled out for a run—to cut a few trees down at the same time.

    The FRAA(Field Recreation Advisory Association) has taken over the sled and insurance for the trailer last month. And a few new volunteers have offered up to help with the Ski Club. Marilyn and Bruce are having some health issues lately so you won’t see us on the trails so much—but I can blog!  I’ll let you know when the first tracks are down. Just need a good dump with no melting!!!

   Wishing everyone who reads this—lot’s of great skiing this winter.
