We hope you’re having a good holiday season and you’re planning on pushing a throttle around Golden BC in the next week. In general, we have good coverage and some fresh snow. There’s a little snow in the forecast and also some sun. The temps will stay quite cool, which means the groomed trails stay in good condition longer.
There’s been amazing light in the last week and sometimes you can see for hundreds of kms.
Weather and Snow
Some say it’s been so cold in Golden that the chicken are lining up at 7-11 to hop in the deep fryer! Seriously though, bring an extra balaclava.
Please check with http://www.avalanche.ca/map everyday before you head out.
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.
Those who brave the long cold road in have been rewarded with good snow and stunning views this week.
Logging is scheduled to be completed on Dec 27th evening, which therefore means that Canfor will now only maintain the road to the Mitten Lake turn off (7km). The Golden Snowmobile club will be paying for road clearing on Dec 29th from the 7km to the 21 km. Updates on maintaining this road will be a week by week decision. The access this week may be the easiest Silent is going to get this winter so we suggest you go for it.
