We purchased a 100-acre parcel (along with mineral rights) on the top of a mountain. Our hope is to build a little hut, high up in the alpine (as per the rendering).
The Outback Adventure property which overlooks Kokanee Glacier and is close to Valhalla Provincial Park, offers an amazing 360º view from a 7,500 foot elevation. It is a prime area for down hill skiing, mountain biking, hiking, climbing, exploring for gold/silver and snowmobiling.
The forest vegetation is a diverse, dense mix of species with cedar and hemlock being the most common. The park supports important populations of mountain goat, and grizzly bear along with most other locally common species of large and small animals. Alpine ptarmigans and golden eagles are favoured birds to watch when hiking.
Parks in the area include Valhalla Provincial Park, Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park and the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy.
