Woodlot Licence W0111

Omineca Ski Club has held Woodlot Licence 111 since 1984.  It is a forest tenure that allows the club to manage both forest products (trees) and non-forest products (such as wildlife, recreation etc) on a parcel of Crown Land of approximately 600 hectares.  Over the years, OSC has logged many areas that are now flourishing plantations of pine and spruce.  Due to the mountain pine beetle infestation of the 1990’s, harvesting plans had to be accelerated resulting in larger cutblocks and more immature forest.  This has resulted in a lower annual cut (and reduced revenues) but we have created healthy forests for the skiers of the future.
