Chek campground update

FLNRO have advised us that work on the Chek campground expansion will resume on Monday 23rd October. The main location will be the lower parking lot. There will be some blasting, so the road will need to be closed temporarily at times.

Separately FLNRO have confirmed that they hope to keep the campground free of charge next year and beyond, as long as operating costs do not go significantly above their current budget for the recreation site. Climbers can help maintain that situation by picking up garbage, discouraging vandalism to the campground infrastructure, etc. There will be more detail on this in the spring.

SAS is grateful to the local Squamish FLNRO office for their continuing support for climbers.
