  • Site Description: Shelter for the Microwave-Sinclair Snowmobile Trails The Microwave and Sinclair are side by side and not for the faint at heart. An easy seven-kilometre ride from the parking lot takes sledders to the JE shelter, and from there it just gets better. Easy and boondocking �whoopty-dos� lead out to the Sun Pit, where wild bowls, steep climbs, and hills and valleys can keep you busy for days. Get ready for tight, ungroomed trails through the trees and as much hillclimbing as you can handle. The area is marked using the Avalanche Terrain Evaluation System (ATES), so be sure to check out the conditions before heading out�and use the beacon checkers. Access Info From Telkwa drive to 5 km on the Telkwa River FSR. From parking lot, ride to km 28 then 6 km up powerline to cabin. The shelter is equipped with a stove and firewood, fire extinguisher, first aid kit, stretcher or spine board, ATES signage (Avalanche Terrain Evaluation Scale), and an emergency procedures and accident report forms. GPS Location 54.38�29.39�N 127.32�53.59�W Elevation 4475 ft This shelter is maintained by volunteers for the use of everyone, including families.
