Jan 5-14 Trail Report

Happy New Years!!

Sorry for the lack of updates, I will do my best to have updates up by Thursday morning each week.

We are still fighting drooping trees these trees really slow down groomer operations. If you are out and see droopers please cut them if you can it only takes you a second or too, as well if you see a branch in the middle of the trail stop and throw it off to the side, this will make it easier for the groomer drivers and will really speed up operations.

Eagle river staging area is open and the front parking lot has been plowed out.

The North trails are open, and we have a few trails that have been groomed. The Athabasca lookout trail from the Eagle River staging (1) area to the Carson cabin (13), the Gundy trail from the Staging area (1) to the Gundy cabin (44), as well as from the Gundy cabin (44) to the Chickadee burner (41) were all groomed on New Years eve. The Golden Triangle is currently unpassable due to blowing snow and drooping trees. It is our goal to have the entire Golden triangle groomed out but Feb 1st.

We are planning to be out in full force this week in an attempt to get all the trails groomed.

The Groat Creek Staging area is open but has not been plowed out, please use caution if you are planning on parking at this staging area before we get it plowed out.

The south trails were all groomed before Christmas including the Goodwin Lake trail and the Summit trail right from town, as well as the Manweiler trail to the river and the Groat Creek staging area (38) to the Summit Cabin (33). These trails have not been groomed since before Christmas but we will be working on getting these trails re-groomed this week.

Groomers are back in action, we had a few problems with the North groomer despite our extensive maintenance plan, but thankful we were able to move the South groomer to the North to help out for a few days. The South groomer will be going back to the south this week and the North groomer appears to be ready to work again. Thanks to all who helped out getting the groomer up and running again.

Extreme Caution is advised when crossing any waterways including rivers, creeks, ponds and lakes.

Also note that the Whitecourt Town bylaw permits sleds to ride from town to the trail system on designated trails ONLY!!
