Closed

It's official. The gate has been closed and ski season has come to an end. Thanks to everyone that came up and enjoyed using the facility, the season was pretty darn good.

update

Conditions are pretty sad as the rain has iced everything up. No grooming has been done as the warm spring weather is upon us. The gate is still open but it is ski at your own discretion. The snowshoe trails are also icy under the trees and are a bit hazardous.

conditions

Groomed up the skate lanes on the dog trails, Gun barrel, Cataline, BX, Wrangler. Repaied the holes left by the snowshoe tracks so should be safe to ski again, Conditions didn't allow to set any tracks so if you go ski, just be cautious. Enjoy

Snowshoeing Trails and Cross Country Ski Trails

Snowshoers please stay on the designated snowshoe trails.  Significant damage was done to the skate lanes on several trails during the warm weather.  Leaving 4-6" holes in the trail surface, making it very difficult and unsafe for skiers.

The snowshoe trail system starts by the lower parking lot at the large fir tree where a map is posted and trail junction marked as the beginning of the Maison Trail.  All junctions have maps and signs.  The trail is marked with yellow flagging tape and yellow snowshoe signs.  Snowshoe / Ski trail maps are available on the website and can be downloaded and used with Avenza Maps.  This app also provides GPS location so you know where you are.

Thanks for the great season so far and we will keep you posted on trail conditions.

Ski tournament

Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped make our 4th annual kids ski tournament a big success. Teams from 100mile and Quesnel had nice things to say, their kids had tons of fun. Dale did another great job announcing, glen and Paul along with all their support crew handling our timing/results. Lisa and Sean for spearheading course and stadium setup, bev for planning out fun stadium obstacle course for fun team relay, Scott Gordon and Malcolm for grooming. Also Jen Clark and Lynn Samson for taking care of the fantastic food. Special thanks to Jim Simms for taking care of large warming tent which again came in very handy. Many thanks to all the others, without you we cannot host these great events and all the kids really appreciate it. Big pat on the back to all.
