  • Whistlin' Jack Lodge Signs Pick Up

    Posted on 06/06/21 at 10:07 PM

    Paul and Kevin managed to pick up the signs that our club posts to guide folks from Taneum Sno-Park to Whistin’ Jack Lodge. Paul went out first in March but couldn’t get them all. The snow was still too deep to collect the ones that were at the higher elevations. Kevin finished up the work the first weekend in June after the roads reopened. 

    When Paul was collecting the signs he ran into someone who commented how much they enjoy the route. It was good getting feed back. Please let us know if you are using the markers, and how you enjoy them, or suggestions how to improve the signage. We will appreciate the feedback.

  • New Past Event - Lone Butte Trip April 2021

    Posted on 04/25/21 at 11:56 AM

    Ed and Kevin decided to get one more sledding trip before calling it a season. There was still around 3-feet of snow on the trails, with 9-foot of snow showing at the weather station snow gauge! The trails were still in good condition. The weather was expected to change to rain, so it will be melting fast.
