Nice work by NSMBA as I'm sure it required some negotiating to arrive at this conclusion, which looks temporary (hopefully auto renewals after 2019). It looks like all new trails are blocked now so its a good thing that GSM/PL and JD are in!

Gnomer Climb?

Yeah, what is this gnomer climb??

Edit to throw props to the NSMBA for the work with CMHC and other parties to get this deal done. Great to see.

Great job by the NSMBA to get that sorted out. I am curious though as to what the status of Empress, Salvation and Pingu are?

I believe Pingu doesn't touch CMHC lands at all and Empress is in the same situation - purely in DNV territory. Only the very beginning of Salvation is within CMHC lands.

Salvation will be getting it's permit reviewed in the next week. There is an opportunity for someone else to come on board to add ideas and help with some of the work so if you're interested let me know. Also, if someone is interested in getting into trail work and learning about some of the right things to be doing out there then feel free to get in contact with me as well. My schedule can be pretty erratic but I'm sure we can we work something out if you're keen. Send me a pm here.

You're wall ride was/is awesome.  I haven't been there in seven generations, but I hope it's still there.

This place, like my grammar, has gone to shit.  For shame.

Interesting that Gnomer is on the list. I’ve ridden it many times always very cautious to be unseen entering and exiting that trail.

That wall ride is hard to get right.

Thanks RM, but Stu is right as when I did the extension and reworked the entrance a number of years ago I messed things up a bit. this year I'm going to change up the entrance so that you can carry enough speed to make it all the way through without any pedal strokes at all.

I definitely was not complaining. Just saying that the way that wall ride was built, you had to have a lot of momentum coming out of it. That means if you were not entering pretty fast, you'd have to pedal out. Took me a few times to nail it, but it can be done, once you get the rhythm right.

I found that I needed to hit the wall ride pretty low to maintain enough speed to make the high side of the  right hander afterwards. I really want to see someone hit the high side of the wall ride!

Way too much of chicken to try that line.

But if I pulled it off I'm sure I would be as stoked as this guy
