In a statement released on Monday, March 16, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort announced that they will be suspending operations for a minimum seven days. The cease of operations comes as a result of the quickly changing conditions surrounding Coronavirus.
The announcement came from Resorts of the Canadian Rockies and affects all RCR resorts, including Kimberley, Fernie and Nakiska. The closure came into effect at midnight on Sunday, March 15.
“Here at RCR our number one priority is the safety, health and well-being of our guests, team members and the communities which we live, work and play in,” said John Shea, president and chief resorts officer for RCR in a statement on Monday morning.
“As tough a decision as this has been, we feel it is the right thing to do under the current circumstance. We sincerely apologize to you, our guests for this inconvenience.”
A possible re-opening date will be evaluated at the end of the week.
