“It’s been a long time coming, but I know a change is going to come.” ~Sam Cooke
Fresh snow has completely covered Glacier Resort’s makeshift foundations in the Jumbo Valley.
The working of the seasons, with no regard to the goings on of humans, always remind me that change is not only beautiful and powerful, but inevitable.
With the Jumbo Wild film and Patagonia’s support last year, we were able to bring our message to the world. And you raised your voices in chorus with people from all around it: you want a wild Jumbo Valley.

On December 1, the Ktunaxa Nation will be heard in the Supreme Court of Canada in their fight to keep Jumbo/Qat’muk wild. Join us as we stand in solidarity with them.

Blue skies, wildflowers and 360 degree views of the mountains and glaciers greeted us as we headed up to the Jumbo Pass. On August 20, we went out on our annual pilgrimage to celebrate the wild Jumbo Valley. We were honoured to spend time at the Ktunaxa Nation’s Qat’muk camp and to hike together in solidarity and friendship. It was a day filled with smiles, laughter, story-telling, wildflowers and new connections. Together, we will Keep Jumbo Wild forever!
Arnor Larson is the kind of man you take seriously. And you should. His years of mountain guiding, extreme attention to detail and proficiency with most everything he does leaves you feeling very confident to just follow his lead. Based in the small community of Wilmer, nestled beside the Columbia Wetlands, Arnor has devoted countless months of his life in recent years to fight the proposed Jumbo Glacier Resort. Though he often flies under the radar, Arnor is an example of the grassroots strength that has propelled this campaign for 25 years.

In June of 2015, the Environmental Assessment Certificate for Jumbo Glacier Resort expired and the BC Minister of the Environment ruled that the project "has not been substantially started." In October of 2015, Sweetgrass Productions released the documentary Jumbo Wild to international acclaim. In December, the Ktunaxa Nation will be taking the fight to protect Qat'muk/Jumbo to the Supreme Court.

The Ktunaxa Nation's legal case will be heard in the Supreme Court of Canada in December 2016. They allege the approval of the Jumbo Glacier Resort infringes on their Charter Rights ...
