Pine Creek trail

Rec Sites and Trails doesn't like our existing Pine Creek trail as it passes through avalanche terrain. They want us to close that trail and replace it with another. Paul Perry has been flagging out a trail opton for them to look at. We think we have a viable option. There is also the trail that was found a couple of years ago and was used a lot last year, the governemnt likes that one. We will continue to work with the governement and plan to make a new trail next summer.

The Onion shelter

The main Onion shelter has been deteriorating over the last decade as a result of abuse, age, and lack of maintenance. We have been discussing the shelter over the last year or so and have started plans on renovating it. We are thinking of reducing its size and possibly changing the shape of the roof. We have someone looking in to what we will need and how much it will cost. Once we have the plans and the cost then we can approach the governement and apply for grants.

Sinclair shelter

Russ has been able to coordinate with the helicopter companies. He had the firewood in some nets provided by Highland Helicopter and then Silver King Helicopters was able to fly it up this past month. Thank you to both companies!

Quality Appliances has donated a chimney for the Sinclair shelter which Russ and Clyde will be hiking up this month. Thanks to Quality Appliances for the donation and to Russ and Clyde who will be hiking it up there.
