The Valemount and Area Recreation Development Association is a non-profit association, consisting of a range of local business and backcountry users. Our key goals are focused on community and public education to help backcountry use and improve the backcountry experience for all user groups. VARDA assists in managing a Sustainable Resource Management Plan (SRMP) for our area the covers territory from Horsey Creek to Blue River.
The SRMP was developed for:
- security of investments
- protection for public access to crown land
- and sustainability of growth for each outdoor recreational activity.
In addition, VARDA assists government in the management of the recreational snowmobiling sector in the Valemount area. We oversee grooming, manage trailhead staff and area maintenance. Much of our efforts are put towards rider education relating to ethical riding, wildlife sensitivities, safety and backcountry stewardship. As the association grows we will focus on further developing the other outdoor recreational activities that our valley has to offer.
Membership is key! As a membership driven non-profit, VARDA relies on participation and support from our members. Please sign up for a VARDA membership in the links above, ask you friends to do the same, and be proud to support a group that has your best interests in mind. There are many benefits associated with membership besides general support and you will find them under the membership section on this website.
Thank you for your interest in VARDA and Valemount.
