Over the years resorts gain popularity and become busier and busier, leaving less room for us skibums. But the fact that resorts now start to put their boundaries further and further away into powder heavens is kind of pissing me off. Theres about 4 projects of new resorts and expansions in BC right now, and I dont think it can mean any good for skiers, except hiking further to find sick lines and trashed powder from the rich tourists... I started this thread after checking on the rumors about a new bigass resort at squamish, "garibaldi at squamish", and i dont like the sight of it...
"This proposed ski resort planned for construction 13 km north of Squamish will include ski and snowboard area boundary encompassing 1,670 ha (4,125 acres); 176 marked trails, plus alpine bowls; snowboard park; nordic trails. Summer season facilities will include mountain biking and hiking trails, golf learning centre, tennis centre and camping. Garibaldi at Squamish is currently undergoing the Government of British Columbia's Environmental Assessment process."
