With the heavy rains of the last few days we’re starting to see some localized flooding.
The Lillooet River is running very high and is full of debris from the Meager landslide. Please stay away from the Bathtub trail and CN bridge; access the trails from the gravel pit. I’d avoid Stimulus – the road from the bottom is not protected by dikes and is likely underwater.
The Green River and Pemberton Cr. are out of their banks near their confluence and the bottom of Lumpy’s is underwater.
The PVTA’s annual fundraiser is coming up this Saturday – mark your calenders! The big party starts at the community centre at 7pm, and runs until we run out of beer. There will be beer, tunes, a killer slideshow, a draw, beer and maybe some beer.
For something a little different we’re going to have a trail day on Saturday as well; the guys at Parks have been after us to re-route the very bottom of Tower of Power away from Rubber Boa habitat, so I think we’re going to tackle that. Come out for the work day before the fundraiser and we’ll have some treats for you – meet at the Bike Co. at 10am and bring pick/shovel/pulaski type tools, and a lunch. We’ll be out there a while.
Just a qwik update on the Nimby Fifty race. It is currently 70% sold out and the entry fee rises to $75 starting this Friday April 20th. You can register here: http://www.nimbyfifty.com/register/
Sign up and start training- trails are in GREAT shape after a very successful Trail Day last weekend.
Terry tells me they have cleaned out and opened up the lower Dark Forest trail for the race as it has been compromised by development lately. Awesome.
Few trail updates/maintenence reports from the Nimby50 guys:
- Dean walked Lumpys and chain sawed out all the blowdown! schweet.
- he also cleared Sphincter-Econoline- Grumpy Grouse (to the first chute).
- and Dan and Big Rad Brad have been busy buffing MooseJah and working on their new trail-left at the top of Mission 2 (not sure of the name but heard it will be called Hand Holders or something like that…)
Thx guys. Keep it up.
Here is a trail condition report for the north side of Mosquito Lake area. Climbed up from Reid Rd today on the Handjob climb and it was clear and tacky. The road up to Econoline is still snowy but because of the cold temp today it was 80% ridable. With warmer conditions it will be sloppy! From Econoline went down Cream Puff and manged to ride 90% of the trail- a bit of snow and ice at the top but generally quite good. Climbed back up Happy Trail- Waco and it was all ridable, albeit with compressed snow sections.
Give it a 7/10.
Little icy on the Econoline access road.
Fresh tracks brah.
Currie lookout- never gets boring.
More freshies dood.
