The Jumbo Glacier Resort is a year-round ski resort proposed in the Jumbo Valley In the heart of BC's Purcell Mountains. Located in the traditional territory of the Ktunaxa Nation, 55km west of Invermere, the resort would occupy 6,000 hectares and access four glaciers. For over 24 years, local residents, concerned citizens and the Ktunaxa Nation have strongly opposed this development for environmental, economic and spiritual reasons. Despite this overwhelming opposition, development has continued to move forward despite overwhelming opposition.
