The Slocan Valley Rail Trail Society invites you to go skiing with them on Sunday

This year the annual Day on the Trail will take place on the Slocan Valley Rail Trail on Sunday, Jan. 31 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

This year the crew from the trail society will set up at the Winlaw station and trailhead. This time around the group will be hosting a ski waxing demo (even the newest skis can benefit) as well as offering some lessons in ski techniques that are sure to improve your skiing enjoyment. If conditions allow, a track may be set up around the Winlaw school field for some fun races and games.

Everyone is invited to come out and take in a self-directed ski on the scenic rail trail. Before and after your ski, there’ll be a bonfire as well as refreshments being offered by trail supporters from Winlaw school. It’ll be a great time to catch up on what’s been happening on the rail trail and check out the new snowmobile and groomer purchased last year with a major infusion of support by the Heritage Credit Union.

The Winlaw trailhead can be reached from Highway 6 in the Slocan Valley. Watch for the large directional signs on the highway.
