Stake Lake washrooms to open Saturday

KAMLOOPS - The Overlander Ski Club is flush with excitement! New heated washrooms will be officially opened at noon on Jan. 31 at the Stake Lake Ski Trails, located just 20 minutes south of Kamloops on Lac Le Jeune Road. After a summer of construction that featured hundreds of volunteer hours and generous donations by many local suppliers, the washrooms are ready for use by skiers and snowshoers alike.

Club President Alan Vyse said building the washrooms had long been a goal of the club that serves 10,000 to 14,000 skiers every year.

“Our customers have had to use pit toilets in the past and the washrooms make the experience of visiting Stake Lake more enjoyable, especially for families with young children.”

Vyse thanked the Kamloops Blazers Sports Society for their help in funding construction of the washrooms.

“We would not have been able to undertake this project without their support.”

He also thanked the Aurora and Daybreak Rotary Clubs for their financial contributions.

Project coordinator and club member Luc Guilherme said that the project would not have been possible without the support of local suppliers and the donation of hundreds of hours of work from club volunteers.
