Here is an interesting article in MacLean’s Magazine regarding the BC Ski Industry’s dirty little secret….ski resorts are not made for skiers….they are made for real estate development….and the real kicker is that according to a 1985 agreement if a ski hill goes bankrupt, the Province is on the hook to keep running it! Gotta love that!

It is very sad, hearing so much about this sort of thing lately. Money is always looking for ways to kill trout and salmon.
I was in the Squamish area a number of years ago hiking in the elaho valley. I remember wishing I had my fly rod with me.
