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.
