news flash

Yes, we are having a Sno-Park clean up day on Saturday May 20, 2023. Some slight differences this year.

Hyak Sno-Park 10 AM until you have had enough. Bags are provided, donuts and a sign in sheet.

Cabin Creek, see what may be happening via Kongsberger website

No Gold Creek until June 3rd

No Crystal Springs


Bring your own gloves, water, rain gear if needed. Hyak has a puddle on the sled hill, if you have rubber boots, bring them.

We’ve often had good weather and will hope for a repeat.


Gold Creek June 3rd

National Trails day!  This is a Mountains to Sound event and you need to sign in in advance. I think it will be fun and a great day to give back. Garbage pick-up is a bit of a side task.

Well, that is a wrap for the regular scheduled 2022/2023 season. I think we reached pre COVID levels of use and it wasn't so bonkers except for those new snow and blue sky weekends. That is not saying it wasn't busy. I saw many of you out there enjoying our wonderfully groomed ski trails.
