In fact, it is the only resort north of Sun Peaks to have this designation. In preparing the Master Plan for this Agreement we studied the entire Mountain and formulated a plan for the phased development of the area. Realizing on this development will depend on market conditions over time but certainly the momentum in the Northwest of BC is a very positive factor that supports the continued evolution of Hudson Bay Mountain Resort.
The Master Plan integrates recreational facilities and real estate development in a logical manner. While the Agreement is with the Province, the regional government of Bulkley Valley Nechako governs the zoning and issues Building Permits for construction on the Mountain. Throughout the development of the plan and to this day we work closely with the Wet’suwet’en and are currently involved in creating joint venture projects with them on the Mountain.
The anticipated first new lift is identified in Figure 1 as lift I. This lift would have its top station slightly higher than the bottom station of the Skyline Chair and the bottom station of Lift I would be just above where the existing Trail to Town narrows and crosses Chicken Creek. Lift I will provide excellent terrain extensions to most of the runs on Skyline Chair such as Ptarmigan and Chapman and provides for significant extensions to the runs that are known by numbers such as 9.0.
Lift I will be totally free from any of the wind effect that occassionally impacts the existing lifts and benefits from being in the lee of the wind so that snow accumulates and remains in this area. The only significant update to the Master Plan for skiing is that we currently expect all new lifts to be 4 place fixed grip chairlifts.
We fully achieved these goals with the location that is highlighted in Figure 2.
In agreement with the Bulkley Valley Nechako Regional District, 100% of the development contemplated in Figure 2 will be fully serviced which, at a minimum, means accessible by road with hydro, water and sewer hook ups at the property lines.
We chose to start with Alpine Way, Figure 3, as it has the first sun in the morning and the last sun at night and offers the best views for which no development will ever occur downhill from this location. It is also the location that is already accessed by two existing ski trails and easy access to Skyline Lodge.
The first offering in Mountain Village is The Estates, 16 sites along Alpine Way are completely serviced and some sites remain available for sale. We have three mountain homes scheduled for construction in 2014 and expect to see more. The Estates’ sites are larger and the only sites on which the owner is able to build their own custom home or cabin.
There is a special opportunity to purchase a turnkey home in The Estates, ready for the 2014-15 season. The developer will be building this modified Wapiti-design Linwood home this summer.
The next development along Alpine Way is Owl’s Nest Cabins, planned to be smaller cabins in the 700 to 1100 square foot range which will be built by the developer in order to ensure that these are nestled in the trees with starting prices from $195,000 for a turnkey cabin.
As we build out along Alpine Way we will review our plans for the lands above this location. Depending on market conditions we will likely change the nature and location of some of the planned development to better meet the market requirements. At the present time there are already over 100 private cabins on the Mountain. Our short term goal is to double that number while establishing the foundation for a unique mountain community that respects its heritage in a natural setting while bringing fundamental comfort and value to everyone who chooses to make their mountain home on Hudson Bay Mountain.
