Trail Work Update: 11 August 2017

First: "Trial and Error" and "Big Kahuna" are temporarily closed for some blasting work and construction at the RMOW water treatment plant. You can ride Kahuna as an out-and-back if you really need to get your no-flow fix. We added "Billy Epic", "99'er" and "Cheap Thrills" to the list of trails with improved sight-lines and choking. Our necks are sore from using polesaws and loppers for the last month and we're ready to chill out for a bit. The trail crew is off for ... Read more

Trail Work Update: 4 August 2017

A short week with the crew due to the smoke; "Howler" de-branch, choke and rake is done, with some bog fill thrown in for good measure. Have a go if your lungs can handle that climb. Speaking of lung busting climbs, The Sproatt Epic loop (that's right, I said Epic.) is finally open! It's extra Epic with smoke, leftover snow, horse flies and -2 Celsius water in Camp lake (temperature of the lake could be an exaggeration). Tim Haggerty, Jerome David and I ... Read more

Trail Work Update: 28 July 2017

The hype is real! I guess some people just can't help themselves. Hopefully the Lord of the Squirrels (LOTS) poachers can also come out and help repair the damage caused... to the trail and to the reputation of mountain bikers. MTB advocates have been lobbying for the opportunity to ride our bikes in the alpine for years. It was the first point of business in the formation of WORCA in 1989. It took 25 years before we got a chance to put ... Read more

Trail Work Update: 21 July 2017

The trimming and choking program continued this week with de-branching on "Sirloin", "Darwin's", "Korova Milkbar" and "A Rockwork Orange". TRAFFIC JAM: Twenty or so DFX kids put on quite a circus trying to negotiate that one right-hander move on "A Rockwork Orange"... Thanks for the show! Needing to escape the heat, we pushed our bikes up "Lord of the Squirrels" to get it primed before the grand opening (date to be determined). What an epic commute! T'was 2 hours up to our ...

Trail Work Update: 14 July 2017

The snow is melting and we have opened more of the Lord of the Squirrels (still as a two way "out and back" experience). The closure is now at 1600m with some snow patches next to the trail. You can expect this closure point to remain until snow is completely gone at the lake (1700m) since the trail crosses several low grade alpine meadows where the winter snow-pack was deepest and the melt water drains the slowest. I'd say it's worth ... Read more
