Whitecourt – Trail Report Feb 18/22

We are excited for the snow! It will enhance our trails for this upcoming weekend’s rally. The trails “are immaculate” is what one of our operators boasted. The trails are packed with fresh snow (approx 5-6″), which by the way is suppose to fall into the weekend. The temperatures are just perfect! Days are decent and the nights are cooler.
Grooming – both rally routes have been groomed from the staging areas to the trails and will also be groomed Saturday night. Please watch for snow cats. They will start after 4:00pm on Saturday. Snow cats run 24/7 so always be on the watch for them. South Side – in addition the Manweiler to Athabasca River has been groomed.
Rally Staging Areas – Westward Community Centre and Eagle River Casino Parking
Hazards – Trail accesses out of town have lower snow and will be rough, please proceed cautiously. Centennial Park trail is still good. Once you are into the Gravel pit and Airport trails they are golden. Golden Triangle Route (Gundy Cabin to Hwy 32) trail is closed with re-route from Carson Cabin to Athabasca Lookout to Casino to Manweiler to Virginia Hills. Pipeline crossings may be a bit rough, please watch for signs to slow down. Remember all water crossings (large or small) may be unpredictable with our ever changing weather, you are travelling across at your own risk. Please take extra caution on the Highway crossings on the rally routes, they are designated crossings, but vehicles may not stop.
