Goose Creek Trail April 6th, 2021
With the lower section of trail melting off quick, we decided to move the cat up and do one last groom for the season.
At the airport we probed 235 cm of base and a few centimetres of fresh since our last trip.
Two dry danger trees cut down and hauled for firewood at the Shaw cabin.
Use caution on the trail at lower elevations, as we are now seeing areas starting to open on the sides where culverts and creek ditches are.
Unloading now up around 3 km but not much area to turn around.
The cat is now parked at 3.5 km and will be used to collect signage and do firewood at the Frosty cabin.
Another big shout out to Cims Rossland Division for helping out with fuel for our last couple grooms of the season, Thank you

Trail is in good shape. Use caution as grooming has ended for the season several areas opening up on the side of the trail.
Thanks everyone who helped out this year with every thing that goes into keeping the club moving forward. The importance of our club becomes very apparent in times like these.
Be safe out there and see you next year.
Ladybird Trail April 1st, 2021
Lady Bird Trail groomed to the 19 km cat turn around on Norns Creek. Spring snow conditions with a crust on sun exposed areas. We probed 225 cm of base and a couple centimetres of fresh on the trail at the 19km marker.
Use caution on lower sections of trail as we are starting to see some melting with the warmer daytime temperatures. Still snow from the parking lot but very thin.
Goose Creek Trail April 1st, 2021
With reports of the trail holding together and very little traffic grooming will be on a as required basis.
Unloading on Goose has been changing daily but most are still unloading between 1 and 2 km. Be sure if you have a trailer it is not too large to unhook and turn it around by hand as there is very little room to maneuver a larger trailer.
Thanks to Cims Rossland Division for helping out with a donation of 250 L of fuel towards grooming to finish off the season.
Have a good weekend
Goose Creek Trail March 24, 2021
Groomed Frosty Trail and Airport Trail with the drag, all went well. Unloaded firewood at the Frosty cabin.
Probed 30cm of fresh at the Frosty Cabin and 40cm up top of Airport since our last groom. Base has increased to 265 cm on the Airport.
Good snow on top of spring snow starts around 5500 feet and continually gets better with elevation. As of yesterday snow up top was still nice powder, not sure if it would have been sun affected today.
The cat is parked at 2 km on Goose Creek Road and there are several dirt patches before that. After 2 km there is only one small dirt section so no point in trying to go further than where the cat is parked.
Lady Bird Trail March 26, 2021
Groomed to 19 km cat turn around on Norns Creek. Still no dirt patches on trail but it won’t be long now. Please try and hold off driving trucks up the trail until the hill is completely exposed from the parking lot as driving up does promote the melt.
In the next couple weeks we are planning on pulling some trees to both cabins on Goose to use for firewood. If you are interested in helping out with this, just send an email to email@example.com and let us know. Thanks
Still winter up top be safe and have a good weekend.
