Jane Koepke wrote a report called "Exploring the Market Potential for Yukon Mountain Biking" in 2004. The Carcross/Tagish First Nation was looking at a number of different tourism/economic development ideas, including a resort. They heard about the work Jane was doing and concluded that mountain biker demographics lined up nicely with their target markets. They approached Jane with the vision to create a mountain bike destination. Jane knew the Carcross area well and immediately responded that the vision was great but the trails simply weren't there to support it! Next thing she knew she was applying for funding to scope the feasibility of developing a trail network in the Carcross area. The feasibility work was followed up with the first official year of trail construction in 2006.
