Keep Jumbo Wild

Deep in the wilds of British Columbia lies a rugged valley – cherished alpine backcountry that deserves permanent protection. At the headwaters of the Columbia River, Jumbo Creek cascades out of deep snowpack, past crumbling glacial ice, wildflowers, and grizzly tracks. The Jumbo Valley has long been revered for its beauty, and to the Ktunaxa Nation, it is known as Qat’muk, home of the grizzly bear spirit. Part of an important international wildlife corridor, the Jumbo Valley is one of only two areas in North America where grizzly bears can freely roam between Canada and the U.S.

Keep Jumbo Wild

But, for nearly 25 years, local people - First Nations, conservationists, backcountry skiers and snowboarders - have fought a large-scale ski resort in Jumbo. As developers face environmental assessments, political roadblocks, and local outcry, many are asking: What more will it take to keep Jumbo wild for good?

We need your voice to help stop development in the Jumbo Valley and to honour the Ktunaxa Nation’s Qat’muk Declaration by creating permanent protection for the region’s cultural and ecological values.
