Park staff have expressed concerns for trail use this weekend, especially on Saturday (February 1, 2020) when temperatures are forecast is for daytime temperature in the low teens…above Celsius. Parks would really like to see everyone make an effort to stay off of Beaverloop, as they are hopeful to showcase it with their Family Fun Day on February 15, 2020.
We appreciate the consideration expected from all of the riders at Buffalo Pound. If anyone has any questions or concerns, Park trail maintenance staff can be reached at (306) 690-4726 voice or text.

Just a reminder that Monday night is our club members social and meeting at Houston Pizza in Moose Jaw @ 6:30 pm. Come out and enjoy pizza on the club as we discuss this past year and make plans for next year. If you are interested in volunteering to be part of the trail crew or assist with an event you will have a chance to get involved.
Monday night we will be drawing for prizes. Each year the Pavers and Western Cycle contribute towards a $1000 Western Cycle gift card (Thanks Dane!!) to be randomly awarded to club member who volunteer with the trail maintenance and organizing our races. We realize that our volunteers are busy people and may not be able to attend. So if you volunteered you will be entered in the draw for the prizes.

There is also a limited number of the AWESOME silicon pint glasses for those in attendance!
Exciting news on winter trail use at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park. This winter they will be maintaining a network of trails for winter use (fatbiking, snowshoeing, xc sking etc). To ensure the trails are maintained, a trails maintenance specialist will be spending 2 days per week grooming a network of trails. As well the roads and parking areas will be maintained so there will be access. Three loops will be maintained consisting of:
Trailhead area – Beaver Loop (west side) to Hawks Hill to Roots climb to Beaver Loop (east side).
Nicole Flats Loop – parking available near the bison paddock. This is a fun loop to the homestead and then around the Nicole Marsh.
Elmview and Maverick trail – Maverick trail is a new trail along the road that connect Maple Vale and Elmview. This loop will also go through the Shady Lane seasonal area which features some fantastic scenery.
