Another member reported today Jan 18: The Montane green trail from barn to the hut was packed this morning and lovely. Montane Green Trail is Nordic skiers only. No track set. The multi use Montane blue was also packed this morning, much narrower but lovely for bikes, hikers, snowshoes and Nordic.

 A BIG Thank You! to Fernie Cardlock. Another $500 was raised for the Fernie Nordic Society during January through the sales of fuel at the pumps. Thank you to all who are clients of Fernie Cardlock.
