A big thank you to all of you who helped with the fall work on Saturday 24 October. All trails have been worked over. We had some teaser snow, all gone now, but we also had a big storm which put again about a dozen trees across the trails including a very big one. Most have been already removed.
The signs are up but we are still waiting for the new shelter for the grooming equipment before taking down the old one. Plowing for the parking lot is arranged. We are ready and waiting for snow so we can start grooming. As soon as there is enough snow to ski safely, the website will have a report.
A word regarding the pandemic with regard to skiing at the Colpoys Trails:
There are no indoor facilities to close and crowding is usually not an issue.
Please keep the 2 m. distance, which means one party stepping aside, so if you wish to pass someone announce it so that passing with distance is possible. Another case arises if you have to register day users or have to use the port-a-potty. We cannot have hand a sanitizer in the outdoors for days, so you should have a hand sanitizer in your car and sanitized before and after using the facilities (like you do at a self-serve gas station).
Despite the circumstances, we do not expect that the Colpoys Trail will officially close. The executive of the club works with the local health officials and discusses our arrangements at Sawmill and Colpoys.
Looking forward to the snow and hoping for a long, good skiing winter to be outdoors and enjoy the wonderful winter landscape at the Colpoy’s Ski Trails.
See you on the Colpoy’s Trails, Your trail captain, Richard.
