Closed….+13 in February!

Stoney Keppel trails are closed…this isn’t how I saw February going either.

Due to serious concerns regarding rider safety and property damage the Stoney Keppel Riders are forced to close their trails.

Snow bridges are collapsing, more and more rocks are becoming exposed and the trail condition has deteriorated drastically.

Please respect the landowners and stay off until we can regroup and re-open.

Trails looking great & SKR Groomer is back in action!

Thanks to all involved, our Kubota is back in operation. Thank you to the groomer team for shifting machines around over the last two weeks.

Gorgeous trails in Stoney Keppel today! #ofsc #district9 #snowmobile

Open-limited

We are open limited as of yesterday afternoon. Matt sent some photos in today to give a heads up about what to expect out there in the wetter areas. These photos are of the B trail in 2013 but he says we are pretty much the same water wise now. We don’t have the skid bridge this year though. Hoping for some colder temps!!

In 2013 volunteers built the bridge, Dave McNabb supplied the skids.

Grooming

We are planning on commencing grooming on Friday January 6th weather permitting. We have received a great deal of moisture in a short period of time and hopefully the mess will start to freeze by the weekend. Standby for more.

Open

Open!!
Our trails are open limited. Please respect that some neighbouring clubs are not so check the interactive map for that.

See you out there tomorrow 😉

Trail Update

It looks like the earliest we will be grooming in Sunday. Still have some staking left to do and brushing. We are really waiting out of respect for our landowners with winter wheat. I am expecting grooming will start full time on Sunday with trails to open shortly thereafter.

We also need to have our signage inspected by our team prior to officially opening the trails.
