It’s been a cold and wet spring, which means that conditions are really good for riding in Golden. This is our second last weekend of operations so get out and enjoy it while you can. Stop by the Riley Suhan Invitational event for some fun on Saturday in Quartz.
How It’s Been.
Suhan getting tricky wit it.
Approximately 25 cms in the forecast this week and a mix of sun and clouds and still fairly cold temps for this time of year. .
Please stay tuned to avalanche.ca for the most up to date avalanche forecasts.
Conditions may be rated as moderate but that doesn’t mean big events still can’t happen.
If you see any avalanche action going on, use the Mountain Information Network to share your photos and information.
Are you booked in for the Riley Suhan Invitational? Relay-style all mountain race on April 7 in Quartz Creek.
GT OR DIE: Great news! We’ve announced Saturday April 14th as the date for this year’s GT or DIE races! It’s going to be a good time and there’s expanded events for kids during the early part of the day.
Using a VHF radio on active logging roads is an essential part of having a safe day. Please watch our road safety video to learn more.
Economic Impact Study
Don’t be surprised if you are asked to fill out a survey at one of our trail heads. We are conducting an Economic Impact Study this winter. We’re hopeful the results of this study will help us get more funding to continue to make snowmobiling infrastructure better. Thank you for your patience.
Quartz has seen heavy traffic but is still giving up a few powder stashes. Firewood has been re-stocked. The new stove we put in the cabin is not functioning as well as we hoped. Keep the door closed to preserve heat.
**Please note that logging operations have started in Quartz up to the first gate (approx 3km). Riders need to stay off the road and on the trail on the side. This is critical. We will have to share access to Quartz with the loggers this spring.
Gorman is in great shape. A lot of people have been using the area but the snow and winds continue to bring good coverage.
Please park efficiently. Many people don’t show up till the afternoon.
The road to Silent is significantly improved with regular grader service as logging has resumed. We’re still parking at the 21 km but now it’s easier to get there.
The riding around treeline is excellent.
