How do you have fun with a dog and a pair of skis? SKIJOR! Dog tested, dog approved!

I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun skijoring is for my dog Otzi and me. Our first season’s experience wouldn’t be possible, or as positive, without these wonderfully groomed trails. They are the perfect training ground to learn this sport!

I would like to encourage everyone who uses the trails to please donate any amount you can to the WEMUC for the maintenance and repairs/replacement of machinery needed to keep this trail system groomed and available for everyone to enjoy!

Consider joining the club! Where else can we ski or snowshoe all winter — with our dogs! — for a $25 membership fee?

WEMUC operates and relies entirely upon donations, so if you use these trails, please help support their existence and maintenance, whether you join the club or not. Mail your donation today. Thank you!

Happy Trails!

Send your donations to:

West Elk 2-28-15Trail conditions are primo with 5-6 inches of new snow last week and a dusting of freshies on top of the groomed trails.  Thanks to Eric Boley and Art Dahl for grooming the trails and setting a ski track on Friday.  It doesn’t get much better than fresh snow on groomed trails.  More light snow forecast for tonight.

Enjoy the new snow!!

Eric Boley drove over to West Elk from Eagle this morning and groomed trails with the Ginzugroomer and tracker. 

Sorry, no photo! Check back tomorrow for snow depths and photos.

Thank you Eric!

Winter is back! Go outside and play!
