If elected, what would you do to try to enhance Sicamous’ position as a four-season destination community?

I tell people I live in paradise and that is especially true for the outdoor enthusiast.

There is within a one-hour window, ideal surroundings for every outdoor activity you could possibly want in any season. Downhill/cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice climbing, dog sledding, mountain biking, cycling, all-season hiking, swimming, water skiing, are all possible just to name a few.

We already host visitors doing these activities, but they are those who come from within a day’s drive and bring their own equipment.  What about those from farther away who either don’t have their own equipment or can’t bring it with them?  We need companies who specialize in supplying equipment, instruction and guides to convince these visitors to make Sicamous a stop on their itinerary.

 

According to Tourism BC these types of people already come to B.C. year round. Outdoor pursuits-focused business can and will bring them here.
