Nordic Workparty


This coming Sunday a work party is planned from 9am to 4pm…..not for kids, and not for dogs.

Slashing/brushing/limbing/chipping/….to widen the west end of the Nordic ski trail to prepare for a dozer to widen the Wagon Road Trail to  the west of where the Kaslo Community Forest finished their logging harvest this summer. There will be a lot of equipment working: chainsaws, brush saws, chipper, track-hoe, vehicles moving back and forth along the Wagon Road trail. We currently have 4 chainsaw operators confirmed and so if you are a good chainsaw operator we could use your help (Personal Protective Equipment is a must).

For equipment, you must have a hard hat, ear protectors, gloves.

Meeting location: West end of the Nordic Ski Trail area where the prayer flags are…..Mt Buchanan and 7 Mile FSR junction.

Directions: from Kaslo, travel toward New Denver on Hwy 31A, then turn off the highway on the Mt Buchanan Lookout access road. Follow the Mt Buchanan lookout signs for ~3km. Where the Mt Buchanan Lookout signs turn left, follow the road to the right to the 7Mile FSR five way junction.
