A proposed new ski resort on the Sea-to-Sky Highway, just north of Squamish, is running into criticism because of its potential environmental impact to grizzly bear, salmon and mountain goat habitat.
But the Garibaldi At Squamish resort (G@S), which would see nearly 6,000 condominium, hotel and housing units, 25 lifts and two golf courses built on a mountain looking down on Howe Sound, might be the best option for British Columbia.
The long-talked-about development, now in the provincial environmental assessment stage, has its drawbacks. But it has a lot going for it, too.
