We are receiving snow today.  A winter snowfall warning is in our region between now and Thursday.  Please do the snow dance!!

We groomed The Golden Triangle connector from the Carson Cabin to the Freeman River this past weekend with favourable results.  We groomed to the Athabasca River from the Chickadee Burner and up to the Virginia Hills Road and back to Gundy Trail (Golden Triangle section).  As well, we will be grooming up to Shiningbank Lookout via Summit, Bessie and Manweiler trails in the next couple days so beware of the snowcat on the trails during the day.     

Staging Areas: Both staging areas are open. 

Hazards:  Reminder that our trail ends at the banks of water bodies. Please be cautious for signage and re-routing on the trails in the north and the south during this winter.  We have made many changes with flattening some hills, widening, mowing and mulching various trails.  Multiple re-routing/bypasses have been completed; please watch for signs or ribboning.  We have Forestry Industry adjacent to many of our trails, therefore a heads up and stay on the trails.

Did You Know
We Have Maps Available  
Through Our Website?

We often get asked where is the paper map copy?  We have our maps available through our website to print.  The perfect map is a 11 x 17 and you can read the detail with ease.  We recommend you print (use Firefox Browser) and laminate it yourself (or send to a copy place and ask for laminated or the tearless paper).  The map has distances, marker points Whitecourt Trailblazers’ Facilities, The Golden Triangle Trail System and some rules.  

In addition, we have 2 Whitecourt In-Town Maps that show the routes out of town as well as in-town trails that can be printed. 

If you are a Garmen User or other gadget user, we have a GPX Map with GPS points for download.  Our favorite is the Google Map that is very friendly that we have GPS locations marked.  You can use it in various views.  

In addition, we have a simple Quick Trail System Map that includes our trail names and our facilities for reference.  

We have numerous maps and signs on the trail system, take a picture of our large map next time you are out, it is the same as the 11×17 map.  

There are other maps available to purchase through the APP Store that have been developed.  The ideas are endless.  Please take the time before you head out to plan your route. 

PLEASE NOTE:  The Golden Triangle has points designated by letters and our points on the Trailblazers’ Maps are by numbers and names.

Trails are holding for us with folks riding in the north and south.  We would love some snow mother nature – pretty please?   There are some bare spots and early riding conditions.  Trails have not been groomed for a few weeks, but definitely rideable.    

Staging Areas: Both staging areas are open. 

Hazards:  Please be cautious of lower snow levels on the trails due to ruts; they can be rough riding.  Reminder that our trail ends on the banks of any water body, please use at your own risk.  Be cautious for signage and re-routing on the trails in the north and the south this coming winter.  We have made many changes with flattening some hills, widening, mowing and mulching various trails.  Multiple re-routing/bypasses have been completed; please watch for signs or ribboning.  Please stay on trails due to logging in areas.
