The South Okanagan Trail Alliance (SOTA) is a not-for-profit advocacy, trail-building / trail-maintenance and trail-lovin' user-group!

SOTA was formed in 2013 out of a need for the South Okanagan's front and back country non-motorized trail user groups to cooperatively advocate for, maintain, build and enjoy single and dual-track trail networks. The founder of SOTA is Andrew Drouin; this is Andrew's third major group-building project; after co-founding the Whistler Mt. Ski Corp. Social Club ("Club Shred") in the 1990's and the Penticton & Area Cycling Association in 2008.

Andrew, along with several members of the local community heralding from numerous sporting interests comprise the initial executive committee. We welcome everyone to talk to us if you're interested in joining the executive committee or simply wish to join as an Alliance member.

Membership in SOTA costs $30.00. Of these membership dues $13.50.00 goes to SOTA and $16.50 goes to the Federation of Mountain Clubs of BC to support their work and to purchase liability insurance through their organization. Executive members pay $1.50 additional for 'special coverage'.

SOTA's creation is an amazing opportunity for us to share knowledge and manpower in order to strengthen our positions with Crown land managers, BC Parks staff, NGO's and private land owners.

SOTA is an excellent vector for us to meet, spend our recreational time in the beautiful outdoors and understand that we all have the same basic aspirations and desires to protect our trails and the amazing areas that they allow us to visit. The founders of SOTA have forged positive relationships with local land management agencies and look forward to working with you in creating the most effective and cooperative recreational trail umbrella organization in British Columbia. Join us!
