Masterplan

In the wake of IMBA Canada Trail Solutions' visit to Valemount BC last month various local media outlets have released three stories on the project and we thought we'd pass them along for our membership to check out.  Daniel has just returned to his office on the Sunshine Coast after a 41 day work tour of western Canada which included the fieldwork component of this project and will be hunkering down to get to work on the design document over the next couple of weeks so stay tuned for more info in the late summer / early fall!

trail design

Earlier this month Trail Solutions focused on design in the rugged terrain within the shadow of the Rocky’s highest peak, Mt. Robson, working with the Yellowhead Outdoor Recreation Association (YORA).  The goal is to develop a new ride destination around the town of Valemount, BC, situated in the “Trench” or “The Valley of a Thousand Peaks”, further strengthening the province’s growing northern mountain bicycle offerings while complimenting those found just across the provincial border in Alberta.
