We are getting close to an agreement on the proposed route from Lot 8 on the Blackcomb side of Fitzsimmons Creek and hope we can build the bridge and trail next year in 2023. Whistler-Blackcomb (Vail Resorts) and Recreation Sites and Trails have a tentative agreement for the trail to be built. We are just waiting for a final email about that.
This year we have made some progress:
met with Whistler-Blackcomb to describe the route to a new staff member who is working in the planning department.
started on a construction plan as requested by Whistler-Blackcomb
surveyed the bridge and marked with rebar posts
marked the trail location between the top of the sliding centre and the first switchback above on the Blackcomb Mountain Access Road
Final agreement signed between Province and Vail Resorts
We need Vail Resorts to sign a sharing agreement with the FMCBC for use of parking
Finish raising money for bridge construction (over 50% pledged so far)
