Volunteers Wanted to Help Open Banadad Ski Trail

Join one of this year's trail maintenance crews clearing the summer's accumulation of brush and downed trees along the Banadad Ski Trail.

The Banadad, located along the Gunflint Trail in Northeast Minnesota is the BWCA's longest Ski Trail. Most of the trail runs through the BWCA, a Wilderness area, where the use of power equipment for maintenance is prohibited. As a result to get the trail open for skiing each year requires some 600-650 hours of hand labor.

Your help is needed - Weekend Ski Trail Maintenance Trip scheduled October 27-29.

Lodging, breakfasts and lunches, trail tools and supervision are provided on all trips. You provide work clothing, sleeping bags and your labor. A minimal fee is charged to cover cost of food (breakfast and lunches, dinner on your own) and two nights lodging.
Cash donations also accepted. Check should be made payable to the Banadad Ski Trail Committee. Sign-up now for this year's trips!

Call 800-322-8327 to reserve your space on the trail crew.
