Manager Curtis Pawliuk says VARDA was able to complete the final improvements to the Crystal Ridge access as well as purchase the new trail grooming equipment, a Skidoo snow machine and a mogul master trail groomer. The equipment will be used to maintain the access to the Crystal Ridge sled skiing area, a unique project started by locals known as the Powerboarders, who had a passion for sled accessed snowboarding.
