Trail Lighting Project

Larch Hills Nordic Society is raising funds to install 6 km of LED trail lighting at Larch Hills Recreation Area.  Covid-19 has impacted some of the fundraising opportunities, but thanks to the continued generosity of our donors the Society has currently raised approximately $180,000 towards the project, which is enough to just cover Phase One.  We continue to submit applications for some substantial grants.  We have received Section 57 approval to proceed with Phases One and Two.  Phases Three and Four are under review awaiting BC Parks approval.  Depending on the availability of funds we will begin construction of Phase One later this spring (and hopefully Phase 2) to have it ready prior to the 2021-22 ski season.  The estimated cost of construction is $100,000 per kilometer and funds will be raised through fundraising events, donations, and grants. Please see the Project Brief and the Documents section of this page for further details about this project.

As of February 2021
