Happy New Year Everyone! We are still in the deep freeze and unfortunately we were unable to get out the past week. The frigid temperatures did not allow us to complete all of the filling and moving of snow. The Snow Cats are out filling some of trails for the weekend today Thursday. It looks like it will be much warmer for the New Years weekend so get out, ride and enjoy!
Snow: We received an inch or two the past week for a total of 16-20″ on the trails.
Grooming: North Side – No grooming yet, but some filling has been completed: Eagle Staging, Athabasca Lookout, north to Carson Cabin.

Trail Report December 23, 2021
We received a few more inches this past week and have approximately 14-18″ of snow on the trails, just in time for Christmas. It is a beautiful wonderland out there. The Snow Cats are out filling and will start grooming. Remember we have 485kms of trails, so it will take some time. The snow cats will be out for the next week or so doing the initial fill & groom. Please beware the cats run 24/7.
Hazards: Beware of large waterways as they are not completely frozen. Staging Areas: Staging areas are open.
Cabins & Outhouses: Closed and Use at your own risk as we are unable to sanitize. Please clean up after yourself. If you pack it in, pack it out.
Trail Closures: Please be advised if you are intending to ride the Whitecourt Leg of the Golden Triangle this winter of our temporary re-routing. Please use the Whitecourt Golden Triangle Re-route from the Carson Cabin to Athabasca Lookout to The Eagle River Casino/Temporary Trail to Chickadee Creek, Manweiler Trail to Virginia Hills. (Gundy Cabin will still be accessible). Unfortunately, the Gundy Trail #44 East of Cabin/Golden Triangle to the Sakwatamau/Letter K is closed for the season due to multiple industrial pipeline closed-crossings on the trail. 9 crossings are affected on our northern trails. The 5 crossings on the Gundy Trail/Golden Triangle are closed for the season. The other 4 crossings will be temporarily closed at sometime this winter. We have NOT been given any timelines, but will be notified when they are working on the crossings on the trails. We will do our best to update you when we know what is happening. Please use caution and beware of signs of speed or work being completed this coming season. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR
Wishing you all the best through the holiday season and into 2022!
We Have Snow so get out and enjoy the ride!
