The Preliminary Resort Concept:
Phase One: Sightseeing gondola
As a multi-phase development, Bridal Veil Mountain Resort would be built in stages. The first phase is an eco-friendly gondola that will rise 1,480 meters above Chilliwack, offering breath-taking 360-degree views of the Fraser Valley and Cascade Mountain Range.
Future Phases: A World-Class, Four-Season Destination Resort
As Bridal Veil Mountain Resort grows to meet tourist demand, a second sightseeing gondola will be added to whisk guests to a vehicle-free mountain recreation area hidden 1,200 meters above the Fraser Valley. In winter, guests will be able to ski or snowboard, backcountry tour, cross-country ski, skate, snowshoe, go tubing or sightsee. In summer, they will be able to hike, camp, sightsee or go downhill or cross-country mountain biking. Ecological and Indigenous cultural programs and sightseeing will be available year-round.
While these facilities, programs and activities remain to be planned and designed in detail, they will all be effectively separated and hidden from the valley floor, offering guests a remote mountain recreation experience with spectacular views of the Fraser River and the Cascade Mountain Range. The physical potential of the site suggests that visitation could equal that of B.C.’s premiere resort destinations, but final guest capacity will be determined in consultation with Stó:lō Communities and engagement with local communities.
