Sasquatch Mountain Resort
Everything You Need To Know For The Perfect Holiday
The History of Sasquatch Mountain Resort
For decades visitors all over the Fraser Valley have been visiting Hemlock Resort, renamed “Sasquatch Mountain Resort”, to fulfill their adrenaline seeking dreams. Whether you’re planning to ski amongst the trees or ATV through the trails; Sasquatch Resort has it all!
Since 2006, Berezan Hospitality Group acquired Hemlock Resort and immediately began ambitious plans to transform the resort into a world-class playground. The ski resort has since upgraded the buildings and some of the lifts. They have furthered the negotiations with the local First Nations and the province of British Columbia. The master plan included $1.5 billion in investments into improving the resort to become the Whistler of the Lower Mainland.
With billion dollar plans to transform the Hemlock Valley, it is no surprise that people have been lining up to witness the changes for themselves. The region has always offered tremendous outdoor activities and its clear Berezan Hospitality Group has every intention of furthering those offerings.
What is there to do at Sasquatch Resort?
Skiing at Sasquatch Resort
Obviously, without the high-speed lifts and groomed runs Sasquatch Resort would just be another mountain. Skiing and snowboarding is the life-blood of this town and it is a great place for beginners and intermediates to shred. The lineups are often shorter than other local mountains and the lift tickets are super affordable. Most families save hundreds of dollars a year choosing an annual pass at Sasquatch over Cypress or Grouse.
It seems every year the resort has been investing more and more into upgrading the runs and lifts. Once the masterplan has been executed the resort will cover more territory than Whistler, have more runs and a lower capacity - basically every skiers dream!
The resort also offers night skiing!
Sasquatch Mountain Tubing
The Yeti Tube Park is a massively popular activity on the mountain. The 8-lane tubing run allows for thrill-seekers of all ages to enjoy the winter activities. Sasquatch Resort offers reasonable pricing whether you’re a family looking for something to do for the day or a season’s pass holder.
Tubing at Sasquatch mountain is a very family-friendly and affordable must-do activity this winter. Plan a day to bring all your friends for an exciting day on the hill!
