China Ridge gets ready for snow season

Over 80 hours of volunteer time was donated during the clean up.

Little Ronan Coyne and Tip Anderson sand the clubhouse tables during the work party day for volunteers.

Volunteers of all ages turned out to do the annual maintenance up at China Ridgeon on the 26th of October. Over 80 hours of volunteer time was donated to brush trails, cut and stack firewood, sand and varnish club house furniture and do a major clean up of all facilities.

All the workers were treated to a hot lunch and goodies supplied by the club.

Long time club supporter Nat Brown announced his donation of an almost new groomer, a track-setter and all his custom built grooming equipment to China Ridge. This generous donation has put a big smile on the face of our volunteer groomer Kevin Kunderman. Kunderman has been maintaining the track at the airport for over ten years using older grooming equipment and is looking forward to using this new groomer & track-setter. For a number of years Nat Brown has assisted China Ridge with many projects, he is the one responsible for bringing the Slovene Nordic Team here in 2009 to train for the 2010 Olympics in Whistler. For years Nat has coached and waxed for Olympic teams and has run  training camps at his Ranch out the Osprey Lake Road.

If you are new to town and are looking to have some fun in the snow come cross-country skiing, skijoring, snowshoeing or tobogganing. China Ridge is one of the few areas that offers a network of off leash dog trails. For more information about China Ridge check out the website at www.chinaridgetrails.com.
