CNC – Ski Trail Brushing
October 3, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Friends of Kananaskis Country & Canmore Trail Alliance
TRAIL CARE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
CANMORE NORDIC CENTRE – SKI TRAIL BRUSHING
Help build your local trail community! This project will focus on some off-season work on the Nordic Centre’s winter trails. We’ll be brushing back ~2 metres of vegetation from the edge of the ski trails to maximize the trail width in winter months when the trail-side trees and shrubs get loaded with snow and encroach into the skiable area. Specific details about each trail care event, what to bring, meeting location, etc. will be communicated in a reminder email to all volunteers who have signed up.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The level of effort for this project is easy to moderate. We’ll be walking several kilometres and doing pruning and clipping of vegetation, and removing our cuttings from the ski trails
Saturday Sept 26 and Oct 3
MEETING LOCATION & TIME
We’ll meet by the large trail map sign outside the west end of the Nordic Centre daylodge (opposite Trail Sports). Meeting times will vary pending the project date and location. You’ll be notified in the reminder email for the trail day you’ve signed up for.
Note: Should weather not cooperate and we need to cancel, we will notify you by email around 12pm the day before the event.
