Trail Conditions

Dec 5th

We still need more snow to groom our trails.  There is roughly about 3ft at the top to date. 

We will keep you updated. 

There is still active logging up Buckworth on the Char Creek Trail.

Temporary Location Change for tonight's meeting.  Kootenay Employment Services: 

MEETING LOCATION CHANGED.....tonight's club meeting (6:30pm) WILL NOT be at the Columbia Brewery, but instead at Kootenay Employment Services (KES) in the back meeting room. There is ample parking in the alley behind Shoppers which is the south side of KES, and also along the east side (back) of the building. The door to go in to the meeting is at the back. There will be a sign showing which door. 🙂 Hope to see you all there! Please share this post, and tell your friends!

 

New Adaptive Management Strategy

A reminder to everyone, that we have Mountain Caribou Closure areas that are accessible by permit only.  This permit has been issued to the Kokanee Country Snowmobile Club, meaning areas can be accessed by club members only.  Those who do not comply with these closures will face fines.  A failure to comply with the process will result in a loss of land access.  

These are the links to the maps of the caribou closures in our area.
