    Re: Fording riding area riding future

    There is currently a sign at the very top of the divide, and I believe it is a snowmobile sign. It has been there for years. I forget what is on it exactly, but my next trip over I'll take a picture....

    Re: Fording riding area riding future

    This is the type of thing where someone with experience dealing with all necessary parties is almost critical. Is there currently a resource for OHV users to go to and read/learn from similar efforts in other regions of the province or even country?

    The community I live in is dealing with a potential development close by and without any knowledge of how developments progress, what the workflow is for local and provincial governments and what rights and opportunities citizens have available to make sure concerns are heard, it's a hard way to start.
    Should we contact the ASA and BCA to get their input?

    Contact us at the Calgary Club and possible the Elkford club. See what they know of the area any history and find out how their management plan with the BC government works for them in their area. Requirements. Another club in the same situation is Swan City Snowmobile Club in Grande Prairie. They ride into BC from a park in Alberta. This is a fine example of what could go on. Thanks for asking the questions and showing interest. They have a section here in this section. N/W Alberta section

    Presently, there is no BC registered trail in the Aldridge Creek/Fording Pass area. It could be applied for and managed by the Elkford club if the present executive thought it was important or wanted to branch out and have control of another area. The only registered trail in the area is the Crossing Creek trail up to Koko and over to the Bull River.

    There are a lot of small, white plastic signs throughout the Elk Valley that infer the area/trail is closed. Many of them were put up by "horsie" people and do not depict the intent of the Southern Rocky Mountain Management Plan. I have always found it interesting how these people were able to get a number of these signs from the government to put up at their discretion.

    Re: Fording riding area riding future

    We've discussed getting it as a registered trail at a meeting in the past. Our primary issue is access we haven't had enough snow down low in the last few seasons to access it easily since the flood and its non motorized in the summer months. The one time I tried to get in there was a lot of alders to be trimmed on the trail
