The man behind the development of Mount MacKenzie is Toronto’s Hunter Milbourne, who at one time was backing the Garibaldi at Squamish resort proposal. Milbourne has an agreement in place with the City of Revelstoke and provincial approval for resort development. Clearing for the village and a golf course at Mount MacKenzie was to have begun this summer but is now scheduled to begin next spring.

But it may be that given the amount of mountain resort development that has already taken place across B.C., and other ski areas’ more favourable proximity to markets, expectations of a recreational real estate boom eventually reaching Mount MacKenzie are optimistic.
