BC Travel Advisory

Travel Advisory from the Government of British Columbia

On April 19, 2021, the Premier of British Columbia made an announcement regarding travel to BC (and around the province). While we have been under a travel advisory since the pandemic was originally announced last March, Premier Horgan has now suggested that travel restrictions may be enforced with roadside checkpoints, “there will be a fine if you are travelling outside of your area without a legitimate reason” Horgan stated on yesterday’s public update. The province has asked the tourism industry to reject bookings from people travelling outside their health region to assist in lowering the number of COVID-19 cases provincially. 

While, at this time, we will not cancel any booking without a request from our guests, we are asking all travelers that were planning on coming to the resort for non-essential travel in the next 5 weeks to postpone until after May 24, 2021. We look forward to hosting you this summer at the resort for your vacation needs. 

If you need to amend your reservation please call our front desk team at 250-341-4000.
