• VARDA...Valemount Area Recreation Development Association

    The Valemount and Area Recreation Development Association is a non-profit association, consisting of a range of local business and backcountry users. Their key goals are focused on community and public education to help backcountry use and improve the backcountry experience for all user groups. VARDA assists in managing a Sustainable Resource Management Plan for our area the covers territory from Horsey Creek to Blue River.

    The SRMP was developed for: security of investments, protection for public access to crown land and sustainability of growth for each outdoor recreational activity.

    In addition to the above, VARDA manages the Recreational Snowmobile industry for the Village of Valemount. We oversee grooming, manage trailhead staff and area maintenance. Much of our efforts are put towards rider education relating to ethical riding, wildlife sensitivities, safety and backcountry stewardship. As the association grows we will focus on further developing the other outdoor recreational activities that our valley has to offer.
