Verdant Creek Fire Update, July 20th: Banff Sunshine Village Area

 The Verdant Creek Wildfire is presently not threatening the Sunshine Village area, and the Sunshine Mountain Lodge remains open for guests. All hiking in the area is under a Superintendents closure.  Safety of our guests and team members remains our top priority.

 Efforts to control the Verdant Creek Fire remain ongoing. The wild fire is burning 2.5 km away from our lease hold in Assiniboine Provincial Park. Parks Canada and BC Parks are working round the clock to prevent the fire from entering our lease hold.

 

About the Fire:

With the dry, mountainous, and windy conditions the Verdant Creek fire has grown. Parks officials estimate the fire to be between 2500 to 3000 hectares in size. The fire has spread along the continental divide in Mount Assiniboine provincial park, across from the headwater of the Brewster Creek Drainage. The fire is presently being fought with five helicopters, and 60 men.

 

About Our Safety Contingencies:

 Parks Canada and Banff Fire have brought up firefighting equipment including hoses, sprinklers, and water bladders (for precautionary measures) to be used if necessary to protect our facilities.

 Our management team has developed contingency plans, should an evacuation order be given. We will continue to share updates on the fire on our social media.
