Valemount Glacier Destination Resort Takes Another Step Forward
Valemount, B.C. – A major project in Valemount is one step closer to reality.
This as the provincial government has approved the Valemount Glacier Destination Resort’s master plan.
The proposed project is located west of Valemount in the Cariboo Mountains and proponents say it would provide a big economic boost to the region.
It has the support of Prince George-Valemount MLA Shirley Bond, area First Nations, local residents, community groups, the Village of Valemount and the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George.
The resort would bring year-round glacier skiing, gondola access for alpine sightseeing, and a 2000 bed-unit resort village.
The proponent will now work with the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations on the master development agreement.
The agreement is a land use contract between the resort proponent and the Province and details how the resort will be constructed and operated.
Once this agreement is in place, construction on the project can start.
