Dot Day returns Sat. April 8th to Slocan Valley

This year, because of the growing amount of equipment we need to service the Rail Trail, we’re hoping to begin construction of a second “Station House” in the Lower Slocan Valley, like the one we currently have in Winlaw. We are already a third of the way to our goal to begin construction, but need your support to help make the station house a reality.
If you’re a resident of the Slocan Valley, you are invited to participate in “Dot Day”. This event sees the Columbia Basin Trust putting forward funds through the Community Iniatiatives Program, which the community then decides how best to use. Over the years, the support we have received from “Dot Day” has allowed our volunteers to achieve many things to make the Rail Trail such an integral part of our community.
Please take a few minutes to come to the Winlaw Hall on Sat. April 8th between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m. and learn about some of the great ideas being put forward in our community. You’ll be given four “dots”, which you can put on the proposal(s) you find most worthy. We hope you’ll give us consideration when you do.

Winter Day on the Trail

Sunday, January 15th we’ll be hosting a Ski Day on the Rail Trail based out of our Winlaw station¬†from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.. We’ll be offering a ski waxing demo where you can just watch to see how it’s done, or have your skis waxed for a $10 donation. As well, we’ll be offering brief ski lessons on how to get the most out of your ski (classic or skate skiing). Of course, you can always just go out for a ski and join us there afterwards. There’ll be refreshments being sold as a fundraiser for the Winlaw School Wilderness Progam. There’ll also be a bonfire to keep everyone warm. So come join us and catch up on all the latest Rail Trail News.

New Facebook Page

We have changed our¬†Facebook site from a Profile to a Page. This will allow us to link our Facebook location to the new website we’ll soon be launching. Might be some confusion along the way, but we’re still the place to go to find out what’s happening on the Slocan Valley Rail Trail.
