The Garibaldi At Squamish Master Plan Consultation Process
The proposal to build an all season resort on Brohm Ridge has moved to the Resort Master Planning stage. The Proponents have put together a DRAFT Resort Master Plan, and we would like to gather feedback and suggestions from the citizens of Squamish as well as other British Columbians who are interested in this exciting new project. This input will help us design and build a resort that is the best fit for Squamish and the Sea to Sky area. Public input has led to many improvements in the current master plan, and we look forward to more engagement as we move closer to making this project a reality.
Please leave your email address and we will keep you up to date on opportunities on how you can learn more about and participate with the development of the Current Resort Master Plan.
Right now, we are asking residents of Squamish and others interested in the Garibaldi Resort Project what they would like to see and the resort, and what their priorities are. Click the link below to fill out the survey.
About the Project:
There will be a turn off just north of Alice Lake Park
A road similar to the one that climbs Cypress will connect the Highway to the Resort
Over 80% of the land will either remain Undisturbed Greenspace/ Old Growth, or be trails & recreation area
The Resort will be designed based on Smart Growth Principles and will have a small footprint.
All 3 base areas are in previously logged areas.
There have been big changes to the previous proposals
The Resort has been re-designed as an all season resort, where activities like alpine hiking and mountain biking will be just as important as skiing.
The resort area is only half the area of previous proposals.
Golf Courses have been eliminated & the Resort is no longer near Cat Lake or Brohm Lake.
The Resort has been approved by the Environmental Assessment Office
In January, 2016, the Environmental Assessment Office approved the proposed resort. After analyzing input from previous engagement, they have allowed the Resort Proposal to move to the next steps. There are 40 conditions attached to the approval.
You won't need a car when you come here!
80+% of the accommodation will be Ski in/Ski Out, Ride In Ride Out or Hike In Hike Out.
One top objective is to create a full resort experience within a walkable village. Transit Services and other options will make this one of the few resorts planned from the start with sustainability at the core. With Transit, you won’t even need a car to get here.
The Resort Investors are from Vancouver
Aquilini Development and Construction along with Northland Properties are the main developers behind the project. They are Vancouver based Canadian companies with extensive holdings in similar businesses.
The Ski Terrain will match “Ideal” Guidelines for all levels
The Ski Terrain has been re-vamped. Now the proposed terrain matches very closely the ideal terrain in the Provincial Guidelines. There is an ideal balance of beginner, intermediate and expert trails.
The Ski Terrain has been significantly improved
We improved the ski plans based on public feedback and made significant improvements. We added more steep, north facing runs that match many of the best areas in Whistler/Blackcomb.
There are incredible views in all directions.
