“Staging Areas will Open on FRIDAY November 23, 2013 for the Sledding Season. Extreme Caution is required during early season riding. Swamps, Beaver Dams, Creeks, Lakes, Rivers, are NOT frozen under the snow. It is NOT recommended to cross any wet areas / water ways. Riders should use the entire width of the trail system (from tree line to tree line) in order pack the snow and drive the frost down into the ground in preparation for the upcoming grooming season. Grooming operations expected to start in mid December 2013. We require an additional 10 – 20 cm of snow prior to starting regular grooming operations.”
Also note that the Whitecourt Town bylaw which permits sleds to ride from town to the trail system on designated trails does not start till Dec 1st
