A year-round backcountry tenure for heli-skiing, heli-biking and heli-hiking and more is proposed for the heart of the south Purcell wilderness. Covering 700 square kilometers, it stretches from the mountains just above Kootenay Lake all the way to St. Mary’s Lake near Kimberley. The proposal has been put forward by adventure tourism operator Retallack, and it has recently been announced that the project will be in partnership with Yaqan nu?kiy, the Lower Kootenay Band.
Join us for a town hall meeting to learn more about the proposals and the wildlife values of the Southern Purcells. Learn more here.
