Resort Development at Brohm and Cat Lake threatens Squamish trails

From the Squamish Dirt Bike Association:

-----------------------------------------------------

Greetings Fellow Dirt Bikers & all trail recreationalists,

The Squamish Dirt Bike Association is asking for your support to help save Brohm and Cat Lake from a resort development almost equivalent to the size of Whistler. 
  • The magnitude of this development is huge
  • BC's trail community will lose dirt bike and snowmobile terrain, plus access to all our trail systems unless we all join together.
  • Brohm Ridge is where the Black Tusk Snowmobile Club maintains a chalet and clubhouse year round.  The chalet is also promoted as the Alpine Learning Institute where annually Avalanche Courses are conducted as well great snowmobiling terrain for those who travel from near and far.
  • In the lower terrain, the SDBA has 1000s of volunteer invested hours in dirt bike trails
  • We also stand to lose our sustainably-managed access to Brohm Ridge's alpine area during the summer months. 
  • Annually, the SDBA hosts the Cat Scratch Fever Hare Scramble Race, club events and group rides, all will the affected by this hugh private development on our Crown Lands.
  • We are talking 1000s of rider days per year gone, making a huge impact on Squamish's varied outdoor recreation tourism.
  • Squamish has over 10 months of dirt and mountain bike riding for the Lower Mainland to enjoy - all gone for the benefit of private developers and condo owners.
The SDBA and BTSC are not the only user groups that visit this area for outdoor recreational pursuits.  The entire community of Squamish would feel the pressure in many ways.
 
Please go to http://savebrohm.org/ for more information and to sign the online petition found in the "Take Action" link.
 
Thank you all for your time and support.
 
With best regards, and a great Holiday Season
Squamish Dirt Bike Association.
