1:15000 mapped

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.

LAND OWNERSHIP:

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.
