Development at Revelstoke Mountain Resort

  • Experience Cabot golf in the mountains.

    Northland Properties is pleased to partner with Cabot to bring the Cabot golf and resort experience to Revelstoke Mountain Resort. Cabot is a developer and operator of master-planned golf resort communities, including the acclaimed Cabot Cape Breton resort in Nova Scotia and the highly-anticipated Cabot Saint Lucia resort currently in development in the Caribbean.

    “We are excited to bring the Cabot brand to Revelstoke starting with an unparalleled mountain golf course, Cabot Pacific,” said Tom Gaglardi, CEO of Northlands Corporation. “The world-class golf experience combined with exceptional hospitality and future luxury real estate opportunities will add another reason to experience Revelstoke Mountain Resort.”

    “When we look for extraordinary golf sites throughout the world, we so rarely find the natural beauty that drew us to Cape Breton and Saint Lucia. I was immediately inspired by the grandeur of the mountains that surround Revelstoke and reminded why people have been drawn to the mountains for generations,” said Ben Cowan-Dewar, CEO and Co-founder of Cabot. “We are excited to build upon the amazing foundation that exists and be part of the thoughtful Revelstoke Mountain Resort expansion.”

    Surrounded by breathtaking mountain ranges, giant old-growth forests and glaciers, the 18-hole golf course is designed by Rod Whitman, an Alberta native with deep Canadian roots, and the designer of Cabot’s first golf course, the award-winning Cabot Links. The course will be routed overlooking the Columbia River with views of towering Monashee and Selkirk peaks in every direction. Set on a bench of land high above the river valley, it takes advantage of the diverse landscape and rolling natural topography. Golfers can expect great natural contours and play among and around cliffs, creeks and large rocky outcroppings set against the stunning vistas mountain golf is loved for.

    Clearing for Cabot Pacific will begin in April 2021 and the course is expected to be ready for play in 2024. For more information, please visit: www.cabotrevelstoke.com.


    Frequently Asked Questions

    When is construction anticipated to start?

    The first phase of development, which includes clearing, grubbing and preliminary grading, is anticipated to commence in late April, 2021. The second phase of development which includes the construction of the golf course, practice facility and maintenance facilities, and the realignment of Camozzi Road, will begin in the late spring or early summer of 2021.

    What areas are impacted with this development?

    The area in question is approximately 120 acres in size and includes land on the east and west sides of Camozzi Road, spanning from McInnes Road to Nichol Road, as well as a parcel adjacent to Airport Way. As per our Proposed Harvest Plan, the first area to be cleared will be the Practice Facility along Sheill Road, followed by clearing on the Holes adjacent to Camozzi Road. A tree buffer zone will be maintained to ensure privacy for local residents.

    Will access to the local trail networks be permitted?

    To ensure the safety of residents and workers, unauthorized access to the area in question will not be permitted. Signage will be posted throughout the area, particularly along existing trailheads and access points.

    Will additional roads be constructed during the harvesting process?

    Where possible, existing roads and trails through the area will be used for access and skidding of harvested timber. Deck locations will be located at mid-elevation locations along Camozzi Road. Roads and trails that cross streams will have minimized widths and be located at designated stream or wetland crossings. Skid trails will be laid out to minimize the number of trails and will use previous trails where possible. Road surfaces will be designed to ensure that surface runoff is diverted and sediment is removed before entering streams or wetlands.

    What happens with the intersection at Camozzi Road and Nichol Road?

    During the second phase of development, a new intersection will be constructed between Camozzi Road and Nichol Road. Camozzi Road will also be upgraded and realigned during this phase. The intersection is anticipated to be completed in 2022.

    What steps have been taken to protect the environment?

    Environmental monitoring will be conducted throughout each phase of construction, as well as into operation, to ensure the effective protection of the environment. All employees and contractors will confirm that they understand their roles and responsibilities by signing an Environmental Orientation Record (EOR), prior to commencing work. Throughout the project several types of monitoring and reporting methods will also be undertaken, including:

    • Baseline monitoring: constituting pre-construction, pre-harvest as well as upland/upstream monitoring during each phase.
    • Implementation Monitoring: on-site monitoring during active phases to ensure compliance with best management practices. These will also allow for modifications to be made based on the results, if practices have been implemented incorrectly or impractically.
    • Effectiveness Monitoring: including downstream monitoring to ensure practices are achieving their intended objectives. These will also allow for modification to ensure effectiveness.

     

    What measures have been taken to protect local wildlife?

    Prior to harvesting or construction, a wildlife monitoring program will be conducted to ensure no harm or harassment of wildlife during the project. Wildlife corridors have also been identified to ensure links through and around the site for wildlife access to water courses, undisturbed forest ranges and passage through urban development.

    What measures are in place to protect riparian areas?

    Tree harvesting will conform to the provincial best practices for land development. All works will comply with the Riparian Protection Regulation and the Water Sustainability Act. A detailed riparian areas assessment was conducted for all streams and wetlands within the proposed development area and included Locks Creek, Hayes Creek, Dominic Creek, Yates Creek, and their tributaries.

    What procedures are in place to prevent invasive species?

    Prior to any harvesting activities, the development lands will be surveyed for invasive species and all operators will be required to wash equipment that has been working outside the region to ensure that they are free from seeds or other plant material.

    What plans have been developed for chemical use (pesticides, herbicides, fertilizer, etc.)?

    As part of our development plan, an Integrated Pest Management Plan (IMP) has been developed that uses a combination of techniques in an organized program to suppress pests effectively in an environmentally responsible manner. The IMP aims to reduce pest problems with methods that are effective, economical, and environmentally responsible. The plan focuses on the prevention of pests with healthy turf first, positive pest identification to concentrate treatment, and non-chemical pest treatment methods.
