On Friday December 14th (this coming Friday) the Groomer will be headed out at 7am to set up the Mara Mountain Trail (Laforge). The collection hut is set up and will be selling trail passes, memberships, clothing as well as giving info for parking, hazards, ect (the usual info). The collection hut is located just past the hill where it was last year. Please stop and check in.. There is still active hauling so please use caution while driving up. The Cooke Creek Trail is c...losed to all traffic, truck or sled Monday thru Friday. Please respect this request from Logging Company.
As well he will have your membership cards for those who have signed up online or at the Snow Show. We will do our best to try and get those cards to you depending
on which trails you ride. (will be a test to see how well my memory is) lol
Happy Sledding and stay safe all!

everyone , I sit here looking out in the distance and all i can see is the bright white snow still downing the mountains. We have been blessed with an amazing abundance of snow this season and i think record snow fall in some areas. It feels strange to see the snow line still so low, it has been a long winter forsure, but all good things must come to an end.
We have now wrapped up our Grooming program for the 2017-18 Season.
I would like to Thank first of all our amazing Groomer operators, Kent, Rob and Dustin. These guys put in so much time plowing parking lots and roads, grooming, repairing, removing trees, marking trails and pretty much anything else that is asked of them. Thank you for all your time, you are all a great asset to our club.
Secondly, to my Trail Collectors, Deb, Echo, Rose and Megan. Thanks for putting in another great season, they as well put in alot of time at the trail heads. lol
A big thank you to our Sponsors, thank you for your continued support it is greatly appreciated.
And to all my fellow Directors: Trent, Jared,Kaylee, Kathy, Doug, Curtis, Karla, Jason, ken, Cindy, Rick and Dustin. Thanks for all the hard work you put in from the meetings to events. As well all the volunteers who come out and support in any way you can.
And Finally i'd like to say a" Huge Thank You" to all our wonderfull Members and non member riders. We seen alot of new members to the club as well as new riders from all over the globe. We appreciate you all for supporting our little piece of paridise we call "Hunters Range"!
There is still lots of riding season left for those die hards, just remember to check any avy forcast, and ride safe and never ride alone!
Thank you again to all for a wonderfull 2017-18 Season here at Hunters Range, i hope to see you all next season!
Have a safe and happy Spring/Summer and Fall.
