The Special Olympics will be held in our area this year from February 29th to March 6th. Blow Me Down Ski Park will be the site of the cross country skiing and snowshoeing.

On February 23rd, the City of Corner Brook will be plowing off the city-owned property on Lundrigan Drive adjacent to Bell's Brook. This site will be used as a transition area ( motor coaches and school busses) during the Special Olympics. Parking attendants and the RNC will be working together to ensure ...a smooth and safe flow of traffic in and around Lundrigan Drive. As such, no vehicles will be permitted to park on Lundrigan Drive during the time of the Special Olympics.

We encourage anyone who is leaving from this area and is using a truck or truck and trailer to leave from an alternate location. The groomed trail system can be accessed from the Lewin Parkway near Farm Road, the Massey Drive/Corner Brook Water Treatment area, Mt. Moriah as well as from the City Tire area.

Grooming Update

The current grooming season is winding down and it has been a great season. Last week the NLSF issued a press release on the current position of it's grooming resources. This winter was practically two winters in one, with the earliest grooming start on record, very few mild periods and tons of snow the NLSF's grooming resources are just about exhausted. Western Snoriders plans to grooming until the second weekend in April on a limited basis. Provided there are no mechanical or major weather issues most primary trails will be maintained as best possible for the next two weeks.

Enjoy the remainder of the season.

 

A full weekend grooming. Going to be a great winter!

Western Snoriders will be holding its Christmas Social on Monday, December 9th. Festivities will start at 7:30 and will be at The Kinsman Center on St Marks Avenue in Corner Brook where finger foods and refreshments will be served.

We would like to show our support and give back to all who volunteered during the year. If you helped build a bridge, maintained or provided wood for the warm up shelters, helped with the auction or Race On The Rock, cleared alters, put up signs or volunteered in any other way that helped to provide the safe and successful year we had last year grab your significant other by the hand and make your way to our social.

We hope to see you there.

Bridge repairs at Blue Hill Brook have been completed. Thanks to all who helped out. It was a another great day!

Plans are still in place for this coming Saturday (Nov 16). We are looking for a show of hands to get some idea if we will have enough people to make this a success. Remember everyone to travels to The Lewis Hills or Stephenville area via Logger School Road has to pass over this bridge.
