We love skiing the trail at the Natural Bridge and Emerald Lake. The tracks were always groomed so well. Thank you for doing such a great job over the many years.

2021/2022 is Marilyn & Bruceâ€™s last winter of heading things with KHSC !
We are stepping aside! Time for new energy to take over.
â€”We have lost our staging area at the Yoho Info Centre. Parks Canadaâ€™s â€œNO compromise rule put in placeâ€ to stop our sled from crossing the TCH at â€œOne Mile Pondâ€ to access the Tally Ho. Now our Track setter Joe must be completely mobile â€”working off the trailer instead of sledding directly from Field.
â€”100â€™s of ice covered trees have fallen and frozen into our trails. This is them most challenging winter ever !
â€”Our sled is old and failingâ€”and so are most of the volunteer members! 60â€™s and 70â€™s is the average age and some having a 30 + history supporting Nordic Skiing in Yoho!
â€”We are getting too old to do this work.
We have lost our focus energy and enthusiasm.
Time for us to pull out as we have been trying to do for years now.
â€”That being saidâ€¦.. Come enjoy the trails we have nowâ€¦.and welcome whatever change may come for next winter.
Sincerely , Marilyn and Bruce
