Trails are officially closed!!

Staging area gates have been locked and officially closed!!

Rivers are open and riding on water ways is not advised!!

The Whitecourt Trailblazers would like to thank all the volunteers that helped to make this season a success!! We would also like to thank all the people that bought passes this season. With the money that we collect through trailpasses we are able to run two groomers approximately 280hr EACH!!! and use almost 5000L of fuel EACH!!! Which is a value of $13000-$15000 just in fuel!! With the money from passes we also are able to expand the trail system, maintain the trails we have (ie Mulching),  maintain and upgrade the warm up shelters, and promote sledding in our area.

So once again we would like to thank all the people who bought passes, as well as all the hard working volunteers that make this club as successful as it is!

 

Don’t forget to buy you tickets for the 2015 World Sled Invasion!!! Also check back here through out the year to see what we have going on!!

Whitecourt Trailblazers – TRAIL REPORT – for the week of March 10 – 16, 2014.

“Golden Triangle between Whitecourt – Swan Hills – Fox Creek is 100% groomed and in great condition. The Trailblazers led a group of 60 riders around the entire Golden Triangle Trail on Saturday March 8, 2013 (220 miles / 350 kms).

 Much of the Whitecourt Trials were groomed Monday March 10, 2014 and Tuesday March 1, 2014 ( this week!).

 Trails remain in good spring riding condition with 1.5 ft – 2 ft of built up trail base. Some exposed trail sections on sunny southern exposed slopes have seen more melting and in some cases most of the snow has melted on a number of these southerly exposed slopes on the trails. Use caution on south facing slopes. Mild March temperatures and clear blue skies provide snowmobilers with a great opportunity to enjoy the trails with family and friends. Please check the Club website for the latest trail updates.”

Golden Triangle Ride

Mar05

The Trailblazers are riding the Golden Triangle in one day, Saturday March 8th. This 10 hour ride is not for the faint of heart. Pack a lunch, extra fuel and oil, and a tow rope (just in case).

Leaving Eagle River Staging Area at 8am sharp. Riding to Swan Hills, gas up, then ride to Fox Creek, gas up, then back to Whitecourt. Will be 10 hours or less. 220 miles. Novice riders are not recommended as this is a very long day and a fast pace will be required to complete the ride before dark.

So Saturday, March 8th at Eagle River Staging Area at 8am!
