EVOC DIG DAY – CANMORE NORDIC CENTRE – ILIAD TRAIL BUILD
We are excited to partner with EVOC and offer a sponsored DIG DAY. Come out and help build your trail community!
Each participant will get a EVOC Dig water bottles, a chance to win a EVOC Trail Builder backpack and EVOC digging tool, and a free slice of pizza and beer at the Bill Warren – Pub Night.
We will be working on the new 4 km Iliad Trail at the Canmore Nordic Centre, located between the Rundle and Meadowview ski trails. This trail is designed to be challenging and fun with lots of elevation changes. It will be constructed predominately to blue square difficulty with black diamond sections that will have ride-around options built in.
Event Date: Thursday, September 1
Time: 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm (5:30-8:00 building, 8:30-9:30 pizza, beer/drinks, prizes)
Location: Canmore Nordic Centre
WHAT TO EXPECT
As a new trail build, the level of effort will range from medium to difficult and include hand tool work such as brushing vegetation to clear the trail corridor, digging a new trail, removing duff and earth with picks and pulaskis, and shoveling/raking out rutting.
PLEASE NOTE: Access to the project will be via bike! Be prepared to ride ~4km on gravel/dirt road, including some uphill sections (contact us if you can’t bike and we’ll arrange a shuttle to the site).
