The Facts

Revelstoke Mountain Resort

Background

Northland Properties Corporation is the majority owner of Revelstoke Mountain Resort (RMR). Northland is also a partner in a proposed new destination resort at Garibaldi near Squamish. 

On the RMR website in April 2017, the company states that, upon completion, Revelstoke Mountain Resort will offer:

  • More than 20 lifts
  • Over 100 ski and snowboard runs and areas
  • Over 5,000 new housing units (1,500 resort condominiums, 2,000 hotel suites, 850 town homes and 550 single-family lots)
  • More than 500,000 square feet of commercial and retail space
  • Plus a golf course

After 10 years of operation

  • The original three lifts are the only major lifts in operation
    • Two chairlifts and one gondola
    • The lifts are entering their 10th year of service. 
    • RMR is adding additional 21 chairs to one chairlift and 24 cars to the gondolawhich will bring those lifts to full capacity
  • No publicly announced plans or timeline for adding new lifts
  • Enjoyment of the mountain is reliant on the single ten-year-old gondola; when it shuts down as it did on occasion last year, access to the entire ski hill including the mid-mountain lodge is cut off
  • 56 ski runs with a mix that leans heavily towards the advanced and expert skier  
  • Fewer than 250 housing units have been built 
  • Commercial space at the base currently consists of guest services, a retail shop, rental shop, ski tuning and repair, ski school, restaurant, bar and cafe, coffee shop and day spa.
  • The proposed golf course has not been started and there has been no timeline for its development released.  Part of the land proposed for the golf course under the 2004 approved Master Plan is not owned by Northland.
  • A new condo development (Mackenzie Village) by a different developer is being built on what would be part of that golf course.  60 per cent of the units at Mackenzie Village sold on the first day at prices ranging from $225,000 to $585,000 showing there is great demand for the resort which would support immediate expansion of RMR.
  • In a letter dated April 5, 2017 to homeowner and RHMOA vice-president Peter Brown, Northland Properties corporate counsel states: “The approved Master Development Plan for RMR did not include promises with respect to lifts, accommodations, food services, any other resort facilities or significant facilities and improvements.”
