NSMBA Trail Academy

Presented by NSMBA and NOCS

note: the 2016 trailbuilder academy is postponed due to the program leader suffering a recent injury that will not allow him to come to vernon.

please stay tuned for more updates when we determine when we will be able to move forward with this program again.


Do you want to add to your knowledge on trail building and looking to be more involved in future NOCS trail project?  The NSMBA is coming to vernon to present their Trailbuilder Academy program again this May 13 and 14, 2016.


The aim of the program is education of the NOCS community of the accepted standard of trail construction in British Columbia and particularly BC Parks.  Building off our  knowledge from our IMBA visit a couple years ago and the NSMBA visit last season this will be an excellent opportunity for our community to improve the quality of our trail knowledge and skills. 

Please join NOCS and NSMBA for an evening of classroom learning on May 13, and then applying skills in the field on May 14.  Classroom location TBA.

Please RSVP by email with NSMBA in the Subject to okcycling@gmail.com to secure your spot and indicate if you have a favourite trail tool you will be bringing.  

Space will be limited to around 30 participants in an effort to make the field portion of the day educational as well.
