Support for Mt. Swansea

Recreation cycling and hiking trail and flying infrastructure on Mt. Swansea is on the road to improvement.

On Sunday, January 6 in Radium at the Village Office, Kootenay-Columbia MP David Wilks presented the Columbia Valley Cycling Society (CVCS) with $57,775 in Department of Western Economic Diversification Community Infrastructure Improvement funds toward improving the recreation cycling and hiking trail and flying infrastructure on Mt. Swansea. It was a great event with approximately 30 supportive people in attendance. The money is being matched 100 per cent by a group of funders: Columbia Basin Trust; BC Ministry of Forests Lands and Natural Resource Operations; District of Invermere; Regional District of East Kootenay; BC Association of Hang Gliders and Paragliders; and the Columbia Valley Cycling Society — $115,000 total for Mt.
