Panorama's Controlled Recreation Area

The land we manage in partnership with the Province of British Columbia

What is a CRA?

A Controlled Recreation Area license of occupation is the legal mechanism that gives the right to the Developer to control access and use by other persons within the defined boundaries of the CRA. Along with the license to occupy the CRA come legal rights and responsibilities that enable the Developer to:

  • Establish and delineate a recreation area boundary within the CRA and designate that boundary by notices, posted signs, fences or otherwise.
  • Regulate and prohibit the access, and entry of persons and vehicles to the CRA.
  • Control, prohibit and direct the movement and activities of persons and vehicles with the CRA, and:
  • Take trespass action against persons who are in non-compliance with the above.

Panorama Mountain Village Ltd. has the authority and obligation to control, prohibit and direct the activities of persons and vehicles within the boundaries of our Controlled Recreation Area (CRA) in the interest of public safety, as granted by the Province of British Columbia in accordance with our lease tenure. It also enables trespass action against persons who are in non-compliance. Read on below if you would like to know more about how our CRA works.

Please respect any mountain closures, it is to keep you safe and no actitvity is worth serious injury or worse, someone’s life.
