Another Major Ski Area Announced For Western Canada
Giant Nickel All Season Resort
A proposal has been announced to turn an old nickel mine in BC, Canada into a year-round recreational area incorporating a ski area called the Giant Nickel All Season Resort.

The $600m (Canadian) plans include a ski area with ten runs and one of North America’s biggest lift-served verticals served by a new gondola which would be located just off the TransCanada Highway, a two hour drive from Vancouver.

The nickel mine closed 45 years ago and the area where the ski centre is proposed is suffering economic decline.

The mine is owned by Toronto-based Barrick, the world’s largest gold mining company, who are reported to be progressing the ski resort plan.
Local communities and First Nations representatives are reported to be in favour of the development. The project will need to go through a two year provincial environmental assessment review.

At least three other ski resort developments have been put forward for western Canada in the past few years.

Patrick Thorne, also known as the Snow Hunter, is an industry expert in all technical developments in snow sports. In addition to his work Patrick is also father and knows the importance and fun of kids on snow.
