The last few months have been amazing for Jumbo and there is lots to celebrate. In June of 2015, the Environmental Assessment Certificate for Jumbo Glacier Resort expired and the BC Minister of the Environment ruled that the project “has not been substantially started.” In October of 2015, Sweetgrass Productions released the documentary Jumbo Wild to international acclaim. In December, the Ktunaxa Nation will be taking the fight to protect Qat’muk/Jumbo to the Supreme Court.
Join us on Saturday, August 20th for a hike through the alpine larches and wildflowers of Jumbo Pass. We will be celebrating a wild Jumbo Valley. We will gather at Kicking Horse Cafe in Invermere at 9am to help facilitate carpooling.
Qat’muk Camp: The Annual Ktunaxa Qat’muk Camp will be taking place at the Jumbo-Toby Confluence. Hikers are invited to stop in the camp to visit and to participate in the feast at 5pm.
