Sledding in the Town of Athabasca
Please note that the routes through the downtown business district has been
cancelled due to increased development and the associated traffic that goes
with the new buildings. Please do NOT ride on the Riverfront walking paths
as carbide skags cut into the asphalt. The alleys between 49th street, 50th,
51st and 52nd are no longer allowed under the new plans. The access routes
are for services (food, lodging, fuel etc) only and not a way to drive
through the downtown core. The River Runners are working with the town to
develop a bypass for future use but there are some land ownership issues
that have to be resolved in order to make this happen but it will take time
and careful planning to make it a reality. The compliance with the agreement
between ARR and the Town of Athabasca is a necessity and we need everyone's
co-operation to keep these privileges alive. We are fortunate to have what
we have and we don't want reckless and foolish behaviour to have the
privilege revoked. Please stick to the routes as outlined in red.
