Update March 16, 2020
To our valued guests.
Our priority is always the safety of our guests and maintaining clear and transparent lines of communication during this uncertain time is very important.
While the Public Health Agency of Canada continues to monitor and provide guidance in regards to the current outbreak of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to suspend winter operations as of March 16, 2020. This is a proactive closure in an effort to do our part in slowing down the transmission of COVID-19 in our communities. To be clear, we are not currently aware of any cases of COVID-19 that affected our guests, staff, or their family members.
The decision to close is not one we take easily or lightly. We want to express our deepest gratitude to all of you for your support and patience. We are deeply saddened by having to shorten our season, but we recognize that we must act with the health and safety of everyone in mind.
We will be contacting all guests with upcoming trips to discuss this decision.
Your Grizzly Lodge family.
