Thank You to all of our Supporters

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!!!!!

Trail Report February 11, 2021

Feb11

We have not received a lot of fresh snow and VERY COLD THIS PAST WEEK!!! We have about 6-12″ on the trail system. Some places are deep and others are not. We are all super sad that we aren’t able to host a rally this coming weekend, it’s always a good time.

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. We will not be cleaning or grooming the Carson Trail between #9 to #6 (cut across trail to Golden Triangle and Gundy Trail). Trail cleaning is finished except for the Golden Triangle section from Carson Cabin to Letter O. We will then be filling creeks, with the snow cats on the connector between L & O.

Grooming: It’s been too cold this past week to groom.  SOUTH:We groomed on the south side from the gravel pit to the Summit Trail to Summit Cabin, as well on Bessie and Manweiler Trails.  Trails can be still a bit rough in places due to low snow.   We have not groomed the Summit to Tom Hill or Goodwin and Groat Creek – they will be groomed when it warms up next week.  NORTH: no grooming done yet – next week.

Hazards: Trails can be still a bit rough in places due to low snow-ride cautiously.  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.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID 19 Pandemic Restrictions and late snow, we are cancelling our Rally. See you Family Day Weekend 2022. Don’t forget to support us on purchasing an online sled deck raffle ticket through our social media and website. It has now become our major fundraiser.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.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID 19 Pandemic we have cancelled our Annual Family Snowmobile Rally on Family Day weekend. See you in 2022 at our next rally. Please support us in our fundraiser, as it is our major fundraiser for the year. https://www.rafflebox.ca/raffle/whitecourttsc

Happy New Year Everyone

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!Wishing everyone all the best in the new year and hoping you are all healthy and happy. We are very grateful for all of our members, funders, sponsors, supporters and mostly our volunteers. A lot of hard work goes into getting the trails, signs, equipment, snow cats, facilities and lookouts all cleaned, maintained and prepped. In addition, there are many hours that go into the administration, decision making, fundraising and making sure we are planning for today and the future of our trails. Thank you to all the Executive and volunteers that have done so much for the Club yesterday, today and tomorrow! Our trails are ready, just waiting for SNOW!!!
