Whitecourt Trail Report – January 20, 2022

We received fresh snow and rain this past week. With the storm, came big winds. Please be cautious for hanging trees on the trails. If you are able to help us out, please cut what you can. If there are big trees across the trails, let us know and we will get to them. In addition, in the open cut block areas watch for snow drifts. Take caution this next week until we can get the cats out on the trails and clean up the debris.

Grooming – South Side – Grooming to Tom Hill from Summit Cabin completed. The Summit, Bessie, Manweiler trails have been groomed again this past week. North Side grooming completed to Gundy Cabin on Chickadee Creek to Manweiler Trails. Pipeline Hill #2 not groomed. Lots of traffic on both sides of the trail system; trails are getting packed. Golden Triangle from Carson Cabin to Letter O has not been groomed yet – limited traffic has been on it.

Staging Areas – We have had the areas cleaned multiple times. We have had lots of snow and warm temperatures. Please use caution entering and leaving these areas. The Eagle Staging Area is being cleaned today.

Hazards – hanging trees, all large water bodies have open areas/pockets, please use caution at all times. Our trail ends before the river, use at your own risk. Gundy Cabin to Letter K is closed due to pipeline construction. No other construction crossings are closed at this time. Please use the Golden Triangle re-route from Carson Cabin to Virginia Hills.
