Skul’qalt Forestry Operations – Winter Creek/Nickel Plate

Posted by: APOA2016  /  Category: News

Hello All

Please consider this email as a notification that Skul’qalt Forestry LP will be considering operations in our proposed developments in Winter Creek and Nickel Plate this fall/winter season. Skul’qalt is still awaiting CP/RP approval and with the extreme summer we have had are hoping operations will be starting up around Mid to Late October 2017 till December 15, 2017. If the Nickel Plate Nordic Center and Apex Mountain Resort could please let me know of any large event dates between October 1 and December 15, 2017 would be greatly appreciated so I can ensure these dates are noted in my Pre-work & Safety meeting with the logging/trucking contractors.

Potential Operation Schedule:

Winter Creek Development (WC-4 and WC-5) – Highest Priority and Primary target to focus on harvesting/Hauling. Hoping hauling and harvesting operations will be completed by Late November/Early December to avoid as much disruption of the cross country ski-trail system (motherlode and Vindicator). I will keep everyone informed once operations begin and possible timetables.

Nickel Plate/Strayhorse Development (NP18 & NP-19)–We are hoping to complete this project before December 15, 2017 ( before – Christmas/peak ski season for tourists).

Please find the dropbox link to view the draft map of the operational areas in Winter Creek/Nickel Plate/Strayhorse:


Thank you,

Mike Beck, RPF

Engineering Manager
