The developers of a controversial ski resort near Invermere don’t sound like they’ll change their proposal despite an avalanche report that’s prompted a halt in construction.
The assessment says two out buildings are partially in a high-risk avalanche zone.
But Jumbo resort project manager Tom Oberti says it is a matter of definitions, saying mapping in the late 1990s show the same buildings in a low-risk area.
“We don’t expect that these buildings will run into any difficulty because they do largely conform with modern-day zoning requirements.”
He says the assessment is a minor wrinkle and is certain construction will resume either this summer or next.
