Conditions Report: Winter is Coming!

With the cooler days and the occasional snow on the peaks, it feels like winter is just around the corner. We had a successful summer of work and are looking forward to another great winter.

Summer Projects

As usual, summers in Golden are spent cleaning up from the previous winter and getting ready for the next one.  We had a pretty big summer this year as we were able to get all three of our alpine zones cleaned up before the end of August, for the first time in many years.  Big thanks to Parks Canada, Rec Sites and Trails BC, Alpine Helicopters and numerous volunteers for helping out.

We managed to collect nearly 24 bags of garbage across all zones, including 16 in Quartz. We’re looking forward to making this an annual project, so please help out!

Membership Now Open!

Our 2021-22 membership is now live for sale on the website. Register now and make your commitment to come riding a lot this winter!
Courtesy reminder: We do NOT mail membership cards, you pick them up after you sign a waiver on your first day riding.
New in 2021-22 : we are using the SAME membership cards as last year.  Please, bring last year’s card and we’ll update it with the 2021-22 season pass sticker after you sign your waiver.
Last year we had just over 400 members, this year we’re gunning for 500.

Confirm your Sponsorship by September 30

We have started our sponsorship drive for the 2021-22 season.  This season we’re hoping to raise $50,000 in cash sponsorship to help us cover the cost of a “new to us” grooming machine.

If you’re interested in sponsoring the club, you can check out the opportunities on our sponsorship page, or email

Many thanks to our 2020-21 sponsors for getting us through a tough year last year!
