Huge New Ski Resort Proposed for Western Canada

J2SkiNews posted 16-Apr

The latest in a number of giant ski resort proposals for a part of the Canadian wilderness has been put forward.

The proposed Bridal Veil Mountain Resort would be located above the Trans-Canada Highway near Chilliwack.

Covering a proposed 11,500 acres of terrain, it would have a footprint about a third larger than North America's current biggest at Whistler Blackcomb. However initial reports suggest the skiable vertical would be much more modest at only around 700 metres.

Car-free, the year-round destination would offer skiing, boarding, hiking and biking accessed by two gondolas from the base.

Those behind the proposal are keen to stress their desire to work in partnership with the S'olh Temexw First Nation who are the original inhabitants of the land involved and to develop to high environmental standards.

The proposals are currently at the "Expression of interest" (EOI) stage. If successful here a more detailed formal proposal will follow and then a comprehensive resort master plan over a period of years. A number of other large ski resort development, mostly in British Columbia, are also making their way through this process.
