Golden has really good mid-winter riding conditions right now. We expect to see some cooler temps, clear skies and a bit less snow this week than last week, which is a welcome change. It’s been really snowy lately and things have filled in nicely. There are a lot of moving pieces that we are trying to coordinate with operations this week. You might want to check back to this post as we will update things as they become known to us.
How It’s Been:
Conditions have been incredible lately. After snowing near everyday for three weeks, we were treated to a few days of sun and people were out getting it good everywhere.
Seems like it will be mostly cold and clear this week with some new snow in the forecast.
We’ve had approximately 40-50 cms of snow last week and there’s about 15 cms more in the forecast.
Things are still considerable in our area and it’s still a good time to be cautious. We’ve seen some big stuff let go over the last week but that doesn’t mean that we’re safe. Keep your heads up!
Please check with http://www.avalanche.ca/map every day 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.
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.
The road to Silent is significantly improved with some grader service on Feb 15. We’re still parking at the 21 km but now it’s easier to get there.
Lots of snow in the zone once you get there.
