BC Ski Resorts Receiving Significant Financial Investment

Leonard Yakhnich

As a Senior Account Executive with Informatica LLC, Leonard Yakhnich draws upon more than a decade of experience in software and data sales in promoting the company's cloud platform to Fortune 500 customers. When he isn't working, Leonard Yakhnich enjoys skiing in Whistler, British Columbia (BC).

This past December, the Whistler Blackcomb ski resort announced plans to invest $66 million into new gondola and lift infrastructure. The historic investment is a revised version of the planned $100 million investment announced in 2016 that was expected to include a roller coaster and an indoor water park. While those attractions won't be part of Whistler Blackcomb, the gondola and lift upgrade is expected to allow for easier travel between both of the resort's mountains and, in turn, attract more skiers from around the world. Some of the money will also be used to add 21 kilometers of trails to its mountain bike park.

Whistler Blackcomb isn't the only BC-area resort receiving significant funding for future development and upgrades. In April, Sun Peaks, the second-largest ski area in Canada, announced a $60 million capital improvement plan that includes a new chairlift and $7 million makeover of its hotel and conference center. The Kelowna-based Big White Ski Resort also announced a $10 million investment plan in April.
