Another New Ski Resort Coming Out Of The Ground

For nearly two decades, Glacier Resorts Ltd, has been trying to add a new ski resort called the Jumbo Glacier Ski Resort in Brittish Columbia’s East Kootenays.  Finally local politicians have removed a major hurdle that will allow this to happen. 

Although details are few at this time, the proposed ski resort would have 23 ski lifts, access to 4 glaciers and a bed base to accomodate over 5000 skiers at a time.

There are opponents who say that the development will impact the habitat too greatly and they are extremely unhappy with the recent decision by the East Kootenay Regional District Board’s 8-7 vote to help pave the way for the new ski resort.
