Snowmobilers are one step closer to completing a high mountain shelter at Eagle Pass.

Columbia Shuswap Regional District directors recently voted unanimously to approve $50,000 in funding to build the emergency shelter at Blue Lake.

Information relating to a request for funding from the Eagle Valley Snowmobile Club has been sent to the District of Sicamous Council for approval.

The $50,000 will come from the Sicamous and Area E Economic Development Opportunity Fund.

Total construction of the emergency shelter is expected to be approximately $100,000, half of which has already been raised.

An Eagle Valley Snowmobile Club request for funds for their grooming program was not endorsed by the District of Sicamous.

The Eagle Valley Snowmobile Grooming Society has submitted a grant-in-aid request to the District of Sicamous to the tune of $20,000, $17.5 thousand intended for capital projects and the remaining for marketing. District council is in the midst of budget deliberations and have yet to make a decision on the request – one of 10 totalling $64,000.
