Jumbo will be wild forever

The Jumbo Glacier Resort was a year-round ski resort proposed in the Jumbo Valley in the heart of BC’s Purcell Mountains. Located in the traditional territory of the Ktunaxa Nation, 55 km west of Invermere, the resort would have occupied 6,000 hectares and access four glaciers. For nearly 30 years, local residents, concerned citizens and the Ktunaxa Nation strongly opposed this development for environmental, economic and spiritual reasons—and they won!

In early 2020, the Ktunaxa Nation, with the support of Federal and Provincial governments, declared the Qat’muk Indigenous Protected and Conserved Area, protecting the Jumbo Valley and 700 square kilometres around it—forever.
