Helping out at the Golden Visitors Centre

As winter has started bringing many people to and through Golden, the Visitors Centre is working hard to help people find their way.

As winter has started bringing many people to and through Golden, the British Columbia Visitors Centre is working hard to help people find their way.

Lynne Romano, the manager of the British Columbia Visitors Centre in Golden, said that now that the season has changed, both local residents and guests to the area, can come to the centre to ask questions about what is happening locally.

“The winter has been lovely. We have just started to get more snow which is great for our skiers. We are very excited to be selling the direct to lift tickets for Kicking Horse Mountain Resort,” she said. “You can come and pick up your tickets here and go direct to lift at the resort. It is very exciting for people who do not want to stand in lines on Saturday or Sunday mornings.”

Due to the desire to help people be at the resort when the lifts open, the centre will be opening its doors early on the weekends.

“We have also decided to open at 8 a.m. on those two days to better facilitate those skiers who want to be skiing at 9 a.m., and not buying tickets,” Romano said. “I am sure it is only going to get busier. As long as people can get here they are going to not want to leave.”

Romano added that as the winter season continues she feels things are going to become busier in the area.

“I think that it is going to grow as Golden becomes more of a tourist destination and people know about us. People will flock to the resort and Golden because there is so much for them to do.”

In addition to the work with the resort, Romano said the centre offers many services to people passing through the area.

“There are still many things to do in Golden. We can direct people to great places to hike or snowmobile. We have trail maps and can help book some accommodations and activities all over British Columbia.”

Romano added the centre is also looking to expand the interpretive program, and take names of people who want to learn more about the community
