After the resort failed in the early 1970's, many people were involved in looking after the place, including long time member (teenager in this photo), Don Scott

About the Black Tusk Snowmobile Club

The Black Tusk Snowmobile Club (BTSC) was founded in 1971 in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada on the heels of a failed ski development. Soon after, The BTSC negotiated it's tenure on Brohm Ridge, North of Squamish at approximately 5300ft above sea level on the rim of an ancient volcano.

Garibaldi At Squamish (G.A.S) - June 2015

As many of you are aware, a proposed all season's resort called Garibaldi At Squamish (G.A.S.) threatens public access to Brohm Ridge and Garibaldi Park.  Said resort could permanently displace the Black Tusk Snowmobile Club and the general snowmobiling public as well as many other groups that enjoy public outdoor recreation in this pristine area.  The G.A.S. group are part of Aquilini Development and Construction Inc which is the same group that owns the Vancouver Canucks, the Sandman Hotel chain and many other developments.

Over the past 10 years, the GAS group has had to submit information to the Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) which in turn allows the general public to submit comments about the proposed project.
