The Onion, Dome and Mic are all good for firewood. Harold Price ans Sinclair will get some flown by a local helicopter company.

The Dome shelter was leaking from the roof in an area near the stove. It wasn't from the stove, just near it. If anyone is going up there soon and feel they can repair it, please do.

The Onion cabin it was noted that there may be a leak near the window sill. It could have just been condensation. If you notice anything please let us know.

A big thanks to Kurt, Julia, Colin, Kyle, Mike and Genevieve for all their hard work this summer. And also to anyone else who brought up firewood and maintained the shelters.


Both groomers are now paid for so that's great news. Services are scheduled soon to get the groomers ready for the season.


Memberships are now ready to go at Evergreen and Trails North.

BC Hydro

BC Hydro is working up the Mic again this year. They will be there until the middle or end of November. If they are still working when we start using the hill then they will have the trail plowed to 3km unfortunately. If this is the case they will make a parking lot for us at the powerline.

Goat Herd

The BC Mountain Goat Society has pushed the governemnt into a voluntary closure anywhere from 1500 Meters and above in the McKendrick mountain. Although the SSA doesn't believe that we have contributed to the suggested decline of the local goats, we do ask that all riders abide by the voluntary closure. We have asked the govenment that whomever it falls upon, to put up lots of effective signage so that there is no mistaking where the area is.

The Movie

Of course you've heard that Jennifer Lopez is coming to town to film a Netflix show. Currently titled "The Mother". They will be filming on Hudson Bay Mountain, Dennis Lake, Jonas Creek and the Microwave. The filming will likely be taking place between mid November and early December. Although they should only be filming up the Microwave for a couple of days (around the Main cabin) they will also be filming at Jonas Creek and they will have a lot of people in the parking lot. One good thing about this is that they need to make more room in the parking lot. They will be enlarging the lot towards the mountain. It won't be a massive increase but will help us out some.

The movie will need snowmobiles and operators for them. If you have trail sleds available for rent please contact Jim at Also if you are able to commit to a couple weeks of work to ride the sleds, please contact Jim.
