Bridle Path Maintenance to begin...

In 2013, MEC supported NSMBA efforts to create bypasses, install a kiosk and general maintenance on Bridle Path including structure assessment and replacement.  Maintenance on these sections will commence starting end of January and continue east as time permits.  Please find the work plan HERE. Any questions can be directed to info@nsmba.ca.

January 2016 Trail Update

2016 is coming in like a LION!

The Shore is runnin HAWT! And everyone in the Sea to Sky is coming down to play while Squish, Whistler & Pemby are under snow. While Fromme was still under snow, riding pressure was through the roof on Seymour. As trails get busier, please use some common sense. Don't stop in the middle of descents and be sure to take out your earphones when crossing other trails. The trails belong to all of us so please respect others and respect the trails. A little goes a long way - slow down when you see other users, even a friendly "Hallo" and a smile makes people feel warm & fuzzy. Sometimes, there's no hard & fast rule so remember; "Courtesy has right of way."


We're all in this together :)

 

NEW TRAIL - Pussyfoot

Pussyfoot is the newest section of the Seymour climbing route, bypassing a short section of C-Buster just after the junction with RT Connector. It reduces the potential for user conflict by providing a climbing only route that twins a steeper section of C-Buster that has also poor sight lines.

NSMBA Relationship Flow Chart

The NSMBA works with local Land Managers to develop a collaborative approach for trail strategies. Ultimately, the Land Mangers hold approval for these proposals. We work hard to create a strong relationship, best accomplished through positive community efforts. As you can see there are lots of pieces to this puzzle and we do it for the love of the trails!

 

Volunteers of the Month - October

The NSMBA would like to thank Sean & Sarah Brassil for their enthusiastic participation in every single possible trail day.  They embody team spirit, working together and bringing a positive attitude no matter what the conditions.  In this pic, they were busy building in a 100mm downpour all day that failed to dampen their spirits - they were laughing and having fun all day long!  Coming through the Builders Academy, they are members of the Race Face Shore Corps and are a shining example of participating to make our community better.  Each will receive a gift pack thanks to local supporter Katana Sports Ltd. including the following brands: Shimano, Pro & Pearl Izumi.

Fall Trail Report - November

 

The work to replace expired woodwork continues. Work on Pangor is nearly complete, with one wooden berm rebuilt and another soon on its way.  This on top of the work over the past several weeks. Most recently, a boxed transition was installed on the optional drop and boardwalk between the wooden berms has been replaced.  Big thanks to Pat Podolski, Sean Gerke & Sven Luebke for the lions share of the work.

Digger continues to buff up Expresso on an ongoing basis, most recently upper Expresso.
