Getting Ready for 2012-13 Season

Trail preparation is well under way for the 2012-2013 season. Several small teams of our intrepid  volunteers made big strides last weekend, completing opening of the trail near Pinto Valley Ranch, and clearing brush along the Carp Ridge and in the old Crazy Horse / Holland Hill areas. There’s still lots to do to get ready for this season though, so we encourage you to get in touch with Ted Kelly, our volunteer coordinator for 2012-2013. Last year was a good year for snowmobiling in West Carleton, considering the limited white stuff on the ground, and this would not have been possible without our volunteers. Please help make the trails in your area even better this year by offering upo a few hours of your time!
