Vandals damaged Regional District of Central Kootenay property at the top of Blewett Ski Hill Road last week.

RCMP are looking for those responsible for using a dumpster to destroy the gate which closes off the ski hill property.

The RDCK and the Nelson Cycling Club currently hold a licence of occupation with the province for this area and are working on improving the trails and infrastructure on the land.

“We have plans to improve this area and this is a real setback,” says Area E Director Ramona Faust. “I’m sure the community will be disappointed to know that the money we have spent on improving this area has been wasted by these destructive individuals.”

Anyone with knowledge of this crime can contact the RCMP at 250-352-2156 or Crime Stoppers at 1-80-222-8477.
