Dear valued sponsor,

Download Sponsorship Package (.PDF)Valemount holds some of the best all season outdoor recreation opportunities in British Columbia.

New ideas, new incentives, and an amazing offer.

March 2020 brought something with it that has affected us all. No matter what sector of the commercial industry you are in, we have all been affected by COVID-19 in one way or another. We cannot continue to look back, but choose to look forward and work together to build back our economy and support for the industry we all love so much.

If you are receiving this package, you have been a valued supporter in the past or you have a link to the recreation industry as a stakeholder or caring participant. The recreation industry is a passion for many and it is one we believe can survive our current state if we all continue to work together.

We understand the situation for many of our supporting businesses and new potential sponsors may be uncertain. But we also believe that continuing our partnerships will be the way to all of our future success.

VARDA has thought long and hard of ways to continue to work with our supporters and we believe that we have a great offer to present this year. We sincerely hope that you will continue to work with us going into the 2020/21 season, and help us develop and promote more outdoor opportunities in the Valemount area.

It’s no secret that Valemount holds some of the best all season outdoor recreation opportunities in British Columbia. The Valemount & Area Recreation Development Association (VARDA) is the trusted manager, developer, and promoter of outdoor recreation in the Valemount area. We strive to make Valemount one of the most sought-after four-season destinations in North America.

Our efforts affect and enhance life in our community, for residents and visitors alike. Our recreation opportunities provide a venue for many activities related to the great outdoors.

VARDA has worked diligently over the years to make Valemount a four-season destination. We have a history of some of the best alpine and backcountry winter access out there. After much effort, we are now emerging as a sought-after summer destination as well, with offerings of world class opportunities for mountain biking, ATVing, hiking and general outdoor adventures.

The relationship between VARDA and its stakeholders is crucial. A lot of VARDA’s success is attributed to our sponsors – YOU! We are extremely honoured with the
level of support that we receive and in the level of return we can offer to you for your investment in us.

There are many reasons to support VARDA and we believe its more important this year than ever. Together, we can continue to promote and develop a strong outdoor
recreation industry and culture. Let’s meet this challenge together.

We look forward to working with you!
