Chance to ask questions about gondola resort proposal near Chilliwack

Project team for Bridal Veil Mountain Resort is holding another virtual info session

It’s another opportunity to ask questions about the Bridal Veil Mountain Resort.

The project team is hosting a virtual information session, May 19 at 7 p.m., “so the public can learn more about tourism attraction proposed for Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley,” according to the May 16 news release.

As with the last session held May 4, the focus is on resort design and features, consultation with local First Nations, environmental stewardship, recreation activities, economic, and tourism benefits. They’ll also talk about how it compares to the Cascade Skyline single-gondola project.

The Bridal Veil Mountain Resort (BVMR) is at the proposal stage at this point, led by B.C. residents Norm Gaukel and Robert Wilson, with the support of Whistler-based Brent Harley and Associates (BHA), an experienced mountain resort planning and design firm. They’ve submitted an ‘expression of interest’ with the provincial branch that considers mountain resort proposals.

The resort would be located on highlands immediately south of the Fraser River, extending over Area D and Area E of the Fraser Valley Regional District and the City of Chilliwack.

After a brief presentation, the public and media will get to ask questions.

To join the session, see www.bridalveilmountainresort.ca for the zoom link.
