SCaT - Syncline Castle Trails Association, is a group of hikers and X-country skiers. As a group we maintain the existing 15 km of beginner to intermediate trails at the Syncline-Castle Cross-Country Ski Area. With membership contributions (as well as grants), both financial and sweat, we maintain the trails.

I was out Sunday morning on the Syncline trails. Still lots of snow and the base is holding. Also, you can ski pretty well anywhere if you're inclined to explore.
The snow should stay for a while yet (especially if it snows as forecast overnight Wednesday!)
A quick little announcement of our annual general meeting. We'll hold it Saturday, May 7, starting 5:30 p.m. It will be followed by a potluck supper and then a photo presentation of some pretty fun ski pictures taken by Edwin Knox who's done a lot of skiing in southern Alberta, both back country and cross-country. He's an excellent photographer also.
The meeting will be held at a private residence in Pincher Creek, at SCaT Director David Green's house.
Here is the address and directions on how to get there (plus a phone number if you're hopelessly lost!):
How to get to 724 Dundas Street, Pincher Creek.
Coming into town from the north: turn in to the left just beyond the Pharmasave Pharmacy as if you were going to the hospital (but don’t go there). Follow the road south-bound past the hospital (on Bev McLaughlin Drive), then take the first right onto Blairmore Street. Follow Blairmore to the end and then follow it as it swings south. Go one block…and there it is….724 Dundas Street….white house, black roof, cedar-sided kiln shed in the driveway.
Coming from downtown: turn off Main Street onto Hewetson Avenue (at the Legion intersection). Proceed north to Frederick Street (at the bottom of the hill) and turn right. Go one block east and turn left on Albert Avenue. Go one block north to Dundas Street, and turn left. Proceed almost to the top of the hill. You will see 724 perched on the edge of the hill on your left…..white house, black roof, cedar-sided kiln shed in the driveway. Either pull into the driveway or park on the street.
