BHA is proud to learn that one of its projects has been awarded Iowa Top New Tourist Attraction for 2018 by MSN.  The MSN Lifestyle article highlighted the best new tourist attractions all across America. As a state of the art all-season park, Sioux City Cone Park was selected as the top tourist spot for the state of Iowa.  Built in 2016, the park’s recreation facilities were design by BHA as part of the Cone Park Master Plan, a project developed in conjunction with SEH.  The first phase of development of the Cone Park Master Plan included a selection of core activities and services intended to create a major all-season recreation hub for the region : an exciting Tube Park showcasing on-snow sound and light effects, a day lodge with an outdoor fire pit, an all-season trail network, and a refrigerated ice rink that turns into a splash pad for the summer months.

BHA was honored to be invited to present their expertise in planning downhill mountain bike areas to the CWSAA (Canada West Ski Areas Association) members.  Kyle Vash, Resort Planner at BHA,  presented an overview of the planning process for the development of a mountain bike park trail network using the new Big White Bike Park, planned by BHA, as a study case.

CWSAA Mountain Bike Operations Workshop was held on October 3rd 2018 in Sun Peaks, BC.  The Workshop was sold out and regarded as a success.  The well-attended event was appreciated by CWSAA members that were interested in developing biking facilities at their resort or simply wanted to keep up with the industry’s latest trends.
