Thank you Western Financial Group

Thank you to the Western Financial Group for your support. Our organization received $5,000 via their Community Infrastructure Grant. These funds will be used towards our 2015 trail projects.

Wigwam Flats

With the warm weather many of us are already heading to South Country to ride. It is recommended that mountain bikers stay on the main trails as mountain bike tires can spread invasive plants.  

Montane Trail Grooming

  

Ten kilometers of the Montane road network was groomed for Nordic Skiing on Sunday afternoon. Hope to groom about once a week going forward.

Snow bikers, snowshoers and dog walkers please stay on the outside of the grooming. We will be grooming the sides for these activities probably starting today.
