Red Mountain To ‘Revitalise’ Century Old Day Lodge (10-May-10)

Red Mountain, BC, May 10, 2010 - Red Mountain Resort has announced

Red Mountain resort in British Columbia as announced it will be investing more than $5 million in two projects: the revitalization of the resort’s 110 year-old day lodge and the second phase of its accommodation development at the base of the ski slopes.

The final stages of design are underway for the restoration of the existing 17,000 square-foot day lodge. The revitalization efforts will also include the addition of approximately 7,000 square feet of new skier services. The services will include equipment rental, retail space, guest services, lift-ticket box office, day lockers, general store, wine bar and a four-season conference centre. Completion is expected in December 2010.

“This development will preserve a piece of history by upgrading the existing 110-year old lodge and likewise, jumping into the 21st century with a new and modern skier service centre and conference centre,” says Howard Katkov, president and CEO of Red Mountain Ventures.

Red Mountain Resort—the oldest ski resort in Western Canada—was purchased in 2004 by business investor Howard Katkov and a group of ski enthusiast investors. Since the acquisition, Red Mountain Resort has undergone more than $57 million in renovations, including new and upgraded lifts, mountain expansion, and ski-in and ski-out residential developments.
