Please be cautious when riding Chickadee Burner to Gundy Cabin on the Manweiler Trail as logging is occurring close to the trail. Signs posted. Logging crew will be there for a while.
THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR SUPPORTERS
We want to thank everyone who has purchased a Sled Deck Raffle Ticket! We are over $13,000 and today is our last day! Thank you, you have made a difference with your support!!!
We are very appreciative of the support online, as well as to those that help us throughout the year. We are a non-profit organization that relies heavily on grants, sponsorships, donations in kind, donations, trail pass sales, fundraisers and VOLUNTEERS!!! Without any of these supports, we would struggle to develop, maintain and groom trails.
Here are some QUICK FACTS, that you may not know:
Grooming Hours: It takes over 170 hours to groom all of our trails – 1 TIME @ $125/hr +
North Trails – 60 hours
South Trails – 50 hours
110 hours x $125/hr = $13,750
Golden Triangle Trails (Connectors) – 60 hours
Filling in creeks/trail preparation prior to grooming is a bit more time (170hrs +) 1 Time @ $125/hr +
Annual trail cleaning, signs, no other major repairs (water retention, dangerous trees, bridges out, etc) we will work well over 400 logged volunteer hours. Add in difficult years with wet seasons and high winds, this will increase more work and potentially higher costs.
THANK YOU to everyone who attends our rallies, buys tickets and trail passes!!!! MOSTLY A BIG THANKS TO ALL OF OUR PAST AND CURRENT VOLUNTEERS!!!!!
REMEMBERING OUR 2020 INVASION
Missing our rally this year- 2021, but we will see you all next year. Enjoy your Family Day Weekend everyone!
Don’t forget to get your ticket for the Sled Deck. 2 days left. https:www.rafflebox.ca/raffle/whitecourttsc
We have received fresh snow everyday over the past week. We have about 6-12″ on the trails. Things are looking a bit more snowy out there and our sledding season has begun.
Trail Cleaning: Thanks again to all of our trail cleaners on both the north and south trails, who cleaned a second time after our big snow squal. Trail cleaning will be finished on the north side today and we hope to be finished trail cleaning later next week on the Golden Triangle section from Carson Cabin to Letter O. We will then be filling creeks with the snow cat on the connector between L & O.
Grooming: We groomed on the south side Summit Trail to Summit Cabin, as well on Bessie and Manweiler Trails.
Hazards: Major waterways are not frozen and extremely rough. Beware of logging on the Golden Triangle Connector between Gundy Cabin and Virginia Hills and Logging by #15 & #16 (Carson Trail). The trail that crosses the road on #10 area is being used. Watch for signs and beware of big equipment.
