The missing piece of The Purcells
At the north end of Kootenay Lake, lies a unique, virtually intact wilderness mountainside that reaches from lake shore to mountain peaks. It is bordered on three sides by the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy Provincial Park (PWC).
Mt Willet (2740m), the highest mountain on Kootenay Lake, presides over this west facing slope.
This Key Wilderness area has been under threat from development and Industry, since long before it was conspicuously left out of the PWC Master Plan, and these pressures are now more than ever threatening the future of the area and the wildlife which depends on it.
