Jumbo Wild Fundraising Camp Dinner November 22
The public is welcome to attend a Jumbo Wild Fundraising Camp Dinner Friday, November 22 at the Nelson Seniors Centre on Vernon Street.
Camp participants, which worked hard during the summer to keep out developers wanting to build a ski resort in the Jumbo Pass, will be sharing stories, video and photos from the camp.
There will also be campfire Jumbo songs and an open mic.
The Keep Jumbo Wild movement has been up against the wall following decision after decision to move the project to build North America’s only year-round, glacier-based ski resort.
After the resort idea appeared to be in mothballs, the provincial government gave the green light to proceed with Jumbo Glacier Resort’s Master Development Agreement in March 2012.
In November 2012 the government one-upped the Keep Jumbo Wild by approving the incorporation of Jumbo as a mountain resort municipality.
