Little Sand Creek

Filed in Ski Touring by on December 8, 2010 0 Comments • views: 1094

Did some good powder skiing up Little Sand Creek (Powder Cowboy)on Sunday with Mitch and Linda. Same old short runs but excellent sunshine and powder. The area is closed for cat skiing this year and was highly used by sled skiers this weekend. From the Galloway Road it is a 16 kilometer and 1000 vertical meter sled ride to the powder zone. Worth it for some early season touring.

Successful Porky Blue Ride

Successful Porky Blue Ride

Filed in Biking by on August 1, 2010 0 Comments • views: 1047

Had a very successful Porky Blue Ride yesterday with 130 cyclists signed up. The shuttle left at 10 am sharp and all riders were cycling by 11 am and checked in at the Fernie Hotel beer garden by 3 pm. Twenty five kilometers of cross-country climbs and descents and no injuries.

Thank you to all our sponsors. 100 % of the signup fees ($2580) went to the Fernie Trails and Ski Touring Club for future trail improvements and the new Tunnel Creek Ski Hut.

Thanks also to porky for his great trail and great taste.

Do not forget to come out and ride Porky Blue next Saturday. Just show up at the Fernie Hotel between 8:30 and 9:30 am to sign up for the 10 am shuttle up to Coal Creek Pass. So far we have over 50 riders so we had another 50 T-Shirts made for late registration. If you have a friend that does not cycle bring them along to help with the shuttle and join the BBQ and Beer Garden at the Fernie Hotel after the ride.
