Town of Canmore

Stone Creek Resorts is proposing to construct and operate a gondola along with a day lodge, trail networks, viewing platforms, suspension bridge and associated utility services infrastructure as part of the Silvertip Integrated Village Resort.

The project proposes a gondola connecting the base area of Silvertip to an upper terminal on the summit ridge of Mount Lady MacDonald, via a mid-station integrated with the Silvertip Resort Village. The project spans lands administered by three jurisdictions: Bow Valley Wildland Provincial Park, Public Land, and land within the Town of Canmore.

A delegation from Stone Creek Resorts provided Council with an update on the project at the May 3, 2022 Council meeting. To view a recording of the presentation click here.
