Recreation Tenure Proposals for the Purcells

Forwarded from Kootenay Mountaineering Club FB page ...

Deadline for comments May 13, 2018 
I wanted to make sure everyone is aware of the two tenure proposals for the Purcells. One is for a non-mechanized operation to include ski touring and summer hiking and the other proposal is for a mechanized
tenure for heli skiing in the winter and heli mountain biking in the summer plus a few other activities. The Helicopter proposed zone surrounds Mount Loki. Time is running out to comment. Here are links to both proposals. Make sure to voice your opinion.
