The SCC is excited to be supporting efforts to groom trails at South Canoe! This is not just great for fat bikers; hikers, snowshoers, trail runners can also enjoy the groomed goodness.

Brian Browning from Centre Point Automotive has purchased a Snowdog and has fabricated a trail groomer to pack a winter route through South Canoe. Brian is working with a group of volunteers from the SCC, and also the City of Salmon Arm and the Shuswap Trail Alliance to provide support and labour for the winter grooming of the South Canoe Trails. So far the group has managed to groom Gypsy Tears, X-Cut, Troll Trail, and a portion of Mo Buddah, and are optimistic with the outcome.

The SCC is also supporting a GoFundMe fundraiser provide some financial support for the purchase and maintenance of the Snowdog. Consider heading over there to donate!

We are all excited by this opportunity to try something new for the community!

As well the Larch Hills Nordic Club has groomed and track set Medford Rd down to the gate at South Canoe via Town View.

Please be mindful of riding only when the conditions are good. Head over to our Fat Bike Best Practices page for tips on winter riding!

We will try to keep the Trailforks Report current as to the trail conditions and grooming status.
