New Business:

CN rail police will be out on Easter weekend enforcing the crossing of the Lillooet River Bridge.

Trail signs around One Mile – suggested that they be installed on the Spring Trail Day.

SLRD report by Allison Macdonald – the Sea to Sky Trail is completed from One Mile through to Nairn Falls campground.  No major work this summer in the Pemberton area – the focus next year will be to link Whistler and Pemberton.

Mt. Currie Trail report by John Chilton – the Section 57 application ongoing: once application is submitted it can take 30-45 days to get approval, John Chilton has begun reviewing the trail with the Lil’wat Band, the PWA is not in complete support of the trail due to impacting the wildlife in the area such as mountain sheep and grizzly bears.

If the PVTA cannot raise all of the funds for the complete trail this summer it was discussed and agreed that the trail should be started and be completed next summer.

Letter from Trevor May: Re: trailforks.com.

He would like to use the PVTA’s GPS tracks to build and online community revolving around mountain bike trails.  It was discussed with the members and the board and while we do not oppose this the PVTA does not own the GPS tracks used to create the PVTA Trail Map.  Brigit Sirota-Goldammer will contact him about this.

Adjournment:  8:30 pm
