We are ready folks, it is time to start construction on the first hiking/biking trail for summer use up at the Salmo Ski Hill. And we need your help!Офисы: Аренда снижается, продажи растут

We will be running volunteer build nights every Tuesday and Wednesday evening from 6pm to dusk starting this week JULY 29. The objective right now is to clear the small trees, blow down, under growth and debris from the planned route so that the machine can come in and start working.

The most useful tools will be garden loppers and clippers, hand saws and rakes. Bring gloves, water and eye protection (sun glasses). We will have some spare tools on hand as well.

We will need a bit of chainsaw work done so if you are certified for limbing and bucking or falling and are willing to donate your time and saw please contact in advance.

Membership is required to participate and are available online or on site. Memberships are $15 for adults and $5 for school aged youth. Kids are welcome to come out if accompanied by an adult.

Contact us through our website at or email or post here!

Finally a big thank you to all the groups that have helped make this happen or donated for the project: the Salmo Ski Club, Columbia Basin Trust, Central Kootenay Regional District, Sutco Contracting, Porcupine Wood Products and Skyway Hardware.

Update on Ski Hill Trails

With the success of bingo we have been able to get our annual operating insurance in place and start working on the Salmo Ski Hill project.
We are partnering with DIG Trail Designs from Rossland for phase 1.
We are looking for local youth between the ages of 12 and 18 that are interested in being involved in layout, design and construction through the summer. Have someone in mind? Want to get involved yourself (yes there are adult opportunities too)? Send us an email, post on our facebook page or come by and see us at the Farmers Market.

KP Park Update

pump track_Page_1We have had a slight change of plans for the weekend. To minimize the number of people that might be around while the machinery is working the machine will be on site from 10am and then we would like volunteers to come out for noon (12pm). This allows for 2 hours with few people to get most of the machine work done. The two main objectives are completing the big line of jumps and building the pump track. Attached is a diagram of the design we plan to follow. The first layout (triangle) will be the main design. The second design below has some good measurements that we can use as guide lines.

Shawn Burleigh will be leading the building for the weekend . If you have any questions you can contact him by email at or phone at 250-505-3670.
