As a result, you may be excited to learn we may be getting a new one, in the Fraser Valley. The new all-season mountain resort promises to elevate tourism while also providing Fraser Valley residents year-round recreational activities.
Having another resort should strengthen B.C.’s existing world-wide reputation for mountain resorts.
New Mountain Resort in Chilliwack
The resort, called Bridal Veil Mountain Resort (BVMR), will be in Chilliwack. It will host 2 sight-seeing gondolas and be about 11,500 acres of mountain terrain.
Led by B.C. residents Norm Gaukel and Robert Wilson and designed by Brent Harley and Associates (world renowned mountain resort planning firm), the project is currently in the “Expression of Interest” phase. Which means it’s in the first of three stages of the application process. If approved, the new mountain resort will be located in in S’ólh Téméxw, the traditional and unceded lands of the Stó:lō people.
This area is essential in the Upper Fraser Valley, in Chilliwack, south of the Fraser River.
