Thumbs up Year Round Glacier Resort in BC!!!

Who has heard about this? A year round glacier resort opening in interior BC! This project seems to have just gotten the green light. They say mid summer conditions and terrain will compare to most other resorts in mid winter

Yeah there is a bit of backlash about it (isn't there backlash for every project these days?)... I'd like to see it built sooner than later.

In the meantime, have you done any summer hike snowboarding? I've heard there are hills along the icefields parkway that have snow into July. Was thinking about taking a hike maybe this June.

The one I'm thinking of is called Parker Ridge...

No never hiked in anywhere but I know a lot of people ride that area in the winter, they just park along the highway. I imagine the same goes for July.

Probably won't happen. The opposition have already said they will kill it when they get in next.

So many runs so little time.

Revelstoke's already at 5620 ft vert... I think the big draw for this place would be the year round boarding.

To be honest with you I rarely do full vert laps at any of the resorts I go to now. At Lake Louise I'm usually running the upper half of the mountain, or the back side which is only about 1500 ft vert. Fernie and Nakiska I'm usually staying on the upper mountain or bowls as much as possible.

I'm more interested in high speed lift served alpine/off-piste riding, even if it's less vert. My frustration with Fernie is that the whitepass quad and polar peak are both non-detachable lifts. Same with both of the back side lifts at Lake Louise. Hello 1953, your chairlift is waiting!!! And that platter at Lake Louise sucks too, but I guess it's sort of a right of passage, to get to the best stuff you gotta ride the worst lift.
