The Spring Trail Work Season is in full swing! Now that all the snow is gone, builders and volunteers have begun heading to the forest to make sure the network is in good shape for the influx of Spring and Summer riders, runners and hikers.
Despite delayed Spring, Builders and volunteers were out in force this past month, building up the trail bed, re-greening areas with sword ferns, getting some rock work done and of course, getting more gold out onto the trails.
This Month’s past trail days:
- Pennzoil w/ Steed Cycles and Santa Cruz
- Baden Powell w/ Norco Bikes
- Boogienights w/ Kona
- Digger w/ Ryder’s Eyewear
- Forever After w/ Rocky Mountain Bikes
- Fromme Ascent w/ Giant Canada
- Dreamweaver w/ Arc’teryx
Now that Empress Bypass has been fully revitalized, the trail crew is busy fixing up eroded sections of trail, due to the melting snow, throughout the network as well as heading to Fromme to finish off the work on Lower Digger as well as some work on Circuit 8.

On top of the other trail days this past month, the FortheGirls Dig Day was hugely successful, bringing out more than 40 girls and women to learn about sustainable trail care and giving some love to Bridle Path!
