Map of the Fromme Trails on Grouse land.
All of Upper Oilcan, top and exit of 7th, Bookwus, Top of Expresso, LOC, Grannies. Top of executioner and Fromme Ascent which is not on this map.
FYI, summer operations on Grouse Mountain currently are bigger and make more money then winter operations. While opening up to mountain biking is possible, the logistics that would have to be overcome are:
1. getting riders up and down the mountain to Grouse Property. They would use the Blue Gondola, which is smaller and used for daily ops.
2. If they were to use the Fromme area, they would want riders to get back to Grouse Property to buy stuff. Gondola/chair at the 6th SB?
Considering the cost of putting in infrastructure to accommodate a user group that would contribute negligibly to their bottom line, but increase their maintenance, 1st aid, transportation and potential conflict with current users, is it worth it? That would be the question.
