Sasquatch Mountain Resort is a generally small ski resort compared to its British Columbia counterparts, but that could soon change. The Mission City Record reports that the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) recently passed the blueprints of what will become one of the largest ski resorts in all of British Columbia. The FVRD Council adopted an Official Community Plan (OCP) to transform the “6300-hectare area around Sasquatch Mountain Resort into a huge resort community.”
Once it is fully built out, the mountain will grow from a daily skier capacity of 1600 to over 16,000. The ski resort, which currently had 36 trails and five lifts, will grow to 283 runs and 23 lifts on 1100 hectares(more than 2700 acres) of skiable terrain. The amount of commercial and service space will go from 16,000 to 280,000 square feet in nine development pods, and the number of available bed units for guests will expand from 1000 to nearly 20,000.
Conceptual photos of the ski resort after the expected fifty-year buildout are below.
