Trail Work Parties

Love getting out in the fresh air and want to help your community? We have a great opportunity for you! Come help us get the Salmon Ridge Sno-Park trails ready for winter ski and snowshoe season. We need you! 

Lunchtime (pre-covid)

Your work not only improves our trails, but also counts as volunteer contributions which help us secure our grants for grooming and track setting the ski trails. This is a great way to spend a summer or fall day in the woods, learn about the trails, and support local cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Come join the fun and help us out.

Some hand tools plus power equipment will be provided.  You are encouraged to bring your own loppers, labeled with your name.

Bring sturdy boots, gloves, rain gear, TP, lunch, and lots of water.

Trip leaders can check USFS fire danger levels here:

2022 Work Party Information

  • Friday, May 20 – 9:30 – 1:30 – Lynne Oliver – 360-592-9005 or toliver1@cablespeed.com  or Pete Tryon  – ski@tryonhayes.com. We will be cleaning up Razor Hone – trimming downed trees back to the far edge of the ‘shoulder’ of the road and moving branches fully off the trail. We will be starting at the far end of the road/trail and working towards the parking lot. If you are late, just come out Razor Hone and find us. The road is passable for most any vehicle.
  • Sunday, June 5 – 9:30-1:30 – Lynne Oliver – 360-592-9005 or toliver1@cablespeed.com  – We will continue work on Razor Hone.
  • Saturday, June 11 – 9:30-1:30 – Lynne Oliver and Pete Tryon.  We will continue work on Razor Hone.
  • Saturday, June 18 – 9:30-1:30 – Lynne Oliver – 360-592-9005 or toliver1@cablespeed.com  – We will continue work on Razor Hone. When we finish Razor Hone, we’ll do the same for Mom’s.
  • Sunday, June 26 – 9:30-1:30 – Lynne Oliver – 360-592-9005 or toliver1@cablespeed.com  – Razor Hone and Mom’s (we’ll be updating this page as we see how much gets accomplished!)
  • When we are done with Razor Hone and Mom’s – Next up, we’d like to hike the back-country trails and do a little TLC on them. Also it would be great to get Anderson back into play.

Can’t make it to these scheduled work parties? Feel free to do a ‘Do-It-Yourself’ work party. Most of what needs to be done is just moving wood off the road and off the shoulders. No tools (except a good pair of gloves) required. See DIY work party page for more information.

We usually work rain or shine, but if the weather is especially bad (or hot) on any of these dates, it is up to the discretion of the crew leader to postpone to another time. In the event of a postponement, the crew leader will contact you and let you know ahead of time, assuming that you let them know you plan to attend.

The trunks will be cut up…
