On Saturday morning, a group of volunteers started to work on the warming hut while the Jackrabbit lessons were going on a little farther down on the trails of the Elk Valley Nordic Centre. They installed a door at one end of the hut, wrapped the entire hut and covered all the openings with poly ... this last one is temporary of course. At least the hut is now somewhat wind-proofed!
Next will come the installation of a wood stove. And further in the future ... real windows? some siding? Stay tuned!
Thank you to all the volunteers who participated in this work party with their time and tools.

The recent warm weather is melting much of the snow on the ski trails very quickly. The forecast calls for colder temperatures this weekend with some snow soon after ... finally! But on the bright side, this spring-like weather has been great for our crew starting the construction of the warming hut at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre. Several volunteers were on site today to complete the roof surface. They have done a lot of work during the last week to reach this point. The hut is visible from the Island Lake road at the entrance of the Mt. Fernie Provincial Park and it is located near the present kiosk at the trail head.
