2015 is in like a lion! Lots happening on the slopes to improve our trails and create connectivity in our network.
Here is the latest...
The NSMBA is proud to announce the partnership with Race Face in 2015 to create the Race Face Shore Corps.
Thanks to support from Race Face, this initiative will continue to grow and become even stronger in 2015.
With over 600 graduates from the North Shore Trail Builder Academy since 2012, our future looks bright.
The Shore Corps is part of the NSMBA Legacy Program to ensure our trails are cared for today and into tomorrow.
The NSMBA would like to extend our gratitude to Race Face for their support.
Thanks to funding from BC Hydro, work is underway to tackle projects from Expresso to Ladies Only on the Baden Powell Fromme. The work will take into account the significant changes in usership since the revitalization of Expresso. Expresso experiences over 3000 uses/month and a whole new beginner/intermediate contigent now uses the BP to the yellow gates. The work will focus to address erosion, heightened usership, erosion caused by the Kilmer Creek diversions, correcting existing hazards and minimizing grade where appropriate.
Dear members and trail users,
As you may have heard, the NSMBA recently launched the Watchmen program. Inspired by the spirit of the Watchmen of the Haida Gwaii, the North Shore Watchmen were meant to be the caretakers of our trails. Unfortunately the rollout was not successful and we find ourselves with a valuable program that was the victim of a poor execution. Due to perception issues, and feedback from our community, the NSMBA has discontinued the Watchmen program, name and branding. The decision was not taken lightly; it was taken in consideration of the feedback we received from the community.
