5 Meter contours from raw LiDAR basemap.
PRODUCTION AND REVISIONS:
Created by David Bakker in 2017-2019. Open Orienteering Mapper (0.8.1) filetype. A letter sized at 1:10000 chunk was completed and used in spring 2017. The map was expanded to the South to the northern edge of the private land in fall 2017, resulting in drastically different vegetation mapping in the two parts (Devil's club and ferns had not yet grown during the spring mapping, but were in full force during the fall). Map has since been corrected to mostly rectify this situation, showing fall vegetation. The remaining portion of the map completed in summer 2018. Small expansion of around 1 square km on the NE corner in summer 2019.
Large cutblocks planned in the best terrain on the northern portion of the map.
Crown land, small private area just north of ski lodge. A few other small private sections (all marked out of bounds on the map) along the road. There is the possibility to use Terra Firma or Eagle Pass Lodge as start/parking venues, if permission from private owners is obtained.
Area is Recreation site requiring permissions from Rec Sites and Trails BC for in person events.
CELL PHONE COVERAGE:
- Telus/Koodoo/Public Mobile/Bell/Virgin - Generally Good (some low points between the higher hilltops on the top end of the map have no service, but all hilltops have service, and the entire lower sections of the map have excellent reception)
- Rogers - Not Tested
UNIQUE SAFETY CONCERNS:
- Vehicle Traffic on Highway 33
- Large Cliffs
- Nearest Hospital: Queen Victoria Hospital - ~15 minutes drive depending on location
- Revelstoke Search And Rescue: Call 911
- RCMP: Call 911
No standard location.
None taken yet.
Latest map as of early 2022 is uploaded. Lots of various pretty layout files available, but not on the website. Contact David if you want them. Map can be expanded a little bit to properly map Terra Firma and surrounding area.
