Help us build a new trail to La Casa!


 
 

 


La Casa Owners and Guests, please join us in supporting the
2010 Bear Creek OHV Trail System Fund Raiser
La Casa Cottage Resort’s Event Centre
Sunday, June 27 2010- 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

We are very fortunate at La Casa to have, within a few kilometers of our backdoor, the newly created Bear Creek Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) Trail System. Administered by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture, & the Arts, and the Okanagan Trail Riders Association, the 35,000-hectare site is the largest managed recreation site in British Columbia. It includes many panoramic lookouts over Lake Okanagan and some of the most beautiful riding trails in BC.

Here is a great video of the trails: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DT6az08MWW4

One of the great advantages of a managed site is it addresses and mitigates the issues of unrestricted OHV use in our backcountry.  This includes the monitoring of trails to ensure riders are using spark arresters, and ‘stealth’ mufflers.  The system is designed to provide quality trails for motorcycles and ATV’s less than 50” in width. It will eventually provide loop trails identified by difficulty level (Green, Blue, Black) and user group.
Proceeds from the LCMC hosted fundraiser will go directly to the development of new trails from the main trail system towards La Casa. Future plans also include mountain bike trails close to La Casa. 

Events include:

Lunch on Zocalos Patio  11:00: - 3:00
Exciting Off-road Bike /ATV movies in the Movie Theatre
Silent Auction with items from hotel/resort vacations to bike and ATV equipment.

“Our goal is to provide a high-quality trail system that is sustainable and provides environmental protection. This is a trail system, not a riding area, so riding off existing routes is prohibited.  By sharing our vision, and complying with some simple rules you, your children, and your grandchildren will have a safe and enjoyable place to ride”
– Ken Umbarger, President, Okanagan Trail Riders Association.
