New Year’s Day Ride

10:00am SHARP start at King Eddy FSR Staging

UPDATE – we’ve done a preride of the 60km route – it’s all passable and the club is providing hot dogs for lunch so you don’t need to bring anything for lunch, unless you don’t like hot dogs.


It’s a long-running club tradition is to kick off the year with a New Year’s Day ride and with the current snow levels things look set for a fun ride. The forecast currently isn’t calling for much snow leading up to January 1 so we should be able to cover some distance, if not we’ll do as we’ve done on past rides which was get as far as possible then make a campfire and break out the stories.

We’ve chosen King Eddy largely due to its ease of parking, Noble Canyon, Mt Ida Pinaus Lake would all be fun but parking isn’t as easy, safe or accommodating as King Eddy.

This is a winter ride so come prepared with winter clothing, winter tools (shovel, tow strap, etc.), your winter emergency gear and something for lunch. The plan is to have a campfire at lunch to gather around for warmth, cooking and story time.

The ride starts at 10:00am with a safety meeting a few minutes prior, don’t be late! The plan is to be done no later than 4:00pm.

King Edward Lake FSR staging is 9km east of Vernon on Highway 6.

Vernon ATV Club Rides & Events are open to the public. We encourage you to attend a couple rides and events to meet other riders, find new trails and learn more about the Vernon ATV Club.
