Merry Christmas from Valemount and a very merry one it will be if this weather pattern keeps up.
Over the past week we have seen a nice reload of the alpine areas with a series of storms dropping upwards of 70cms of snow.
We are still facing some issues with access to one of our areas (Allen Creek) due to ice bulges that are as strong as kryptonite, although we had a dedicated crew out recently with chainsaws and mattocks to try to deal with the issue. We hope that we can get a machine up with the rest of them to open up the regular access for the 27th.
We are taking a break from the trailhead and groomers for Dec 25/26 although we have tried to leave good trails at Clemina and Chappell for those Christmas and Boxing Day riders. The fleet of groomers will be back out in full-force on the evening of the 26th for smooth sailing on the 27th and through the holiday season.
Merry Christmas from all of us out here at Valemount. Ride safe.
