PLEASE NOTE THAT TODAY'S SKI PRATICE HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
Bring running shoes, ski striding poles, and water bottles. Be prepared for hot weather.
Please check website after 2 pm today when a final decision will be made about cancellation due to smoke and poor air quality.
If practice is held, the meeting place will be the trailhead for the Larch Hills Traverse at the Sicamous end. The parking is off the Trans Canada Highway 1 km before reaching Sicamous and is apparently quite limited, so car pooling is a good idea.
Instructions (from the Shuswap Trails Website) for how to get to the trailhead are pasted below:
East Trailhead (Sicamous): Park at the Visitors Information Centre, or Wharf in Sicamous. Walk or cycle west along north side of Sicamous Narrows Bridge to the “Welcome to Sicamous” sign, 1 km from the Sicamous Narrows bridge. Turn south (right) off the highway at the sign. Follow the 2 wheel drive accessible Forest Service Road 400 meters to the obvious trailhead sign on the right. NOTE: For those driving to the trailhead, please drive out to the Shuswap Lake rest stop 3km West of the turn. Turn around here and drive back to the Forest Service Road. There is no turn lane and it is a dangerous spot to turn left/south off Hwy 1 (double yellow line). Please park in the designated area only.
