LEES+Associates was excited to attend the 2017 MTB Tourism Symposium in Revelstoke BC this fall.
Gathering multidisciplinary minds invested in furthering the future of mountain bike tourism in British Columbia, the core theme for this year’s event was stewardship.
The symposium lectures covered topics such as; Creating Successful Multi-Use Trails, Sustainable Trail Management, Building Relationships in our First Nations Communities, Planning and Building for All Riders, Mtn Biking in National Parks, and The future of E-Bikes.
The symposium was a great success with over 200 participants representing a broad spectrum of the industry; from community planners, landscape architects and trail builders to recreation professionals and policy makers.
Ali Canning from our team, took part in a pre-symposium IMBA Canada Trail Building Workshop which focused on sustainable trail building technique and design, and was followed by infield construction and a reforestation project.
