Summer glading enhances the ski terrain
Part of Island Lake’s on going summer effort is to enhance the terrain in order to make the ski experience as great as possible. Our glading crew spends a fair bit of time planning out the best approach to this. Corrie and Steve, whom take this on are long term ski guides as well and know every nook and cranny of the Island Lake ski terrain. This past summer the guys concentrated on enhancing early season ski options and cat access. This means cutting down a whole lot of alder and willow bushes. With this work it will be easier for skiers and snowcats to get to some of the pick up zones in the terrain, thus giving more options and a better ski experience in the early season. Some of the areas that were worked on include: The Woodies ridge line, trees between Faceshots and Wolverine, the shrubs on Skyline and Five Star, The Galdiator, The Hot Tub Chutes alder path and Hunters left.
These enhancements are part of the ongoing effort to make the Island lake ski experience the best it can be.
Now – lets get this ski season started!
