Pretty hard to believe we are still able to sled. We received 2-3″ of fresh snow this past week, but it is going fast. South Side: Summit to Manweiler and Bessie Creek, Shiningbank Lookout to Tom Hill trails still in great shape. Northern areas still have lots of snow as well. South facing hills and areas are starting to see bare patches, beware of rocks and debris. Please stage from staging areas. Extreme Spring conditions- Be cautious. OHV Bylaw in effect – Unlawful in town- April 1st. All gates are closed.
