Vail Resorts Renews Development Agreements

Vail Resorts, a global mountain resort operator, said on Friday it renewed long term development agreements for the Whistler Blackcomb ski resort with the Province of British Columbia and Squamish and Lil’wat Nations.

“Whistler Blackcomb has entered into agreements with the Squamish and Lil’wat Nations on whose traditional territories it operates,” the Canadian company said in a statement. “The execution of these 60-year agreements provides future certainty for Whistler Blackcomb’s operations and are a positive benefit for the local communities and the Province of British Columbia.”

Whistler Blackcomb, situated 125 kilometres (78 miles) from Vancouver, British Columbia, was the official alpine skiing venue for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
