Stawamus Chief Provincial Park

STAWAMUS CHIEF PROVINCIAL PARK

 

SAS has had a long relationship with BC Parks advocating on behalf of climbers on the Chief. One important recent policy change, that SAS influenced, was seasonal nesting restriction based on actual raptor observation rather than a rigid ban each year on the same physical location. SAS also worked with BC Parks to create the Best Practices Guide for new route development in the park, which since been adopted elsewhere. The Chief is of course also a key location for SAS’s ongoing Fixed Anchor replacement work.

In earlier years SAS has influenced policy toward the climbers campground at the Chief. In 2004 SAS played a leading role in defeating the proposal to build a gondola to the summit of the Chief.
