DURING THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER 50$ PER PASS SOLD WILL BE DONATED TO PEMBERTON SAR!
Every year during the month of November we donate 50$ per sold pass to a SAR organisation. This year we support Pemberton SAR!
Pemberton and district is a vast area with ample recreation opportunities for the outdoor sports enthusiast. This and its close proximity to Vancouver and an almost unlimited number of backcountry activities, create unequaled conditions for a high incidence of backcountry emergencies. When called, members of Pemberton District Search & Rescue provide the technical and emergency medical skills required to reach, treat, and remove injured or distressed people from the backcountry.
The Pemberton District Search & Rescue team is comprised of a diverse group of volunteers who invest countless hours away from family, friends and work to train for and provide critical life-saving services to those in need. Their members are all trained in ground search and rescue techniques and emergency first aid. In addition, many of their members also participate in specialized disciplines, such as tactical rope, swift water and mountain rescue responding by ground, snow, water, and air.
The area they cover is one of the largest search & rescue coverage areas in the province representing over 20,000 square kilometres. From the coast west of Pemberton, south to Whistler, east to the head of Harrison Lake, and halfway to Kamloops to the north.
We are very excited about supporting them his year! We hope we never have to call them, but if we ever need to, the help that they provide is invaluable. Help us support them by buying your pass this month!
