Or buy a PVTA membership! If you can't dig (I'm guilty of riding way more than digging…) get a membership to all your riding zones. From fraser valley to Pemberton, it's not much $$$ if you figure $30 each. $150 roughly from the Fraser valley to Pemby. Plus each association appreciates the subscription numbers since it shows a larger representation and allows them to gather more funding from other sources.

hear hear! and the pvta membership is an outright steal at only $10

The announcement thread went out a week before trail day, sorry about the short notice.

Did it get sent out to the PVTA membership list?

My wife and I bought membership last year but I've never had a single email from them.

PM'd you CraigH.
Not huge news, but new trail on One Mile. Murse Made eliminates the crappy climb on Overhill. Head up Overhill like usual but turn right on the old Lumpy's, you will see Murse Made on your left after a short climb. Eventually the trail will connect to the top of Pickle Surprise and mean you can climb to the top via Newsflash utilizing almost entirely singletrack.

I hit it last weekend. We couldn't get to the top section due to snow on the road. We cut in at the first intersection and rode the rest, which was all in great shape. It seems like it gets surfy a lot higher up than I remember but maybe that's in my head.

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

Did 2 laps this morning. Lower entrance. Fun trail. First time out there. Hero dirt for a bit then surfy bottoms turns.

Made it up to Gravitrout yesterday, still lots of snow on upper middle earth and the rd to the cell tower. Needs a couple more weeks I think. A few large trees down on upper gravitrout, definitely need a chainsaw to clear.

Has anyone tried to get to upper PHD? What's the road like after all that logging?

I drove it today. The road is pretty damn soupy with the spring run off. Trail looks good to go since I just poked my head in. Probably going to ride it this week so I'll report back.
