Re: “Brohm Ridge deemed an 'unacceptable site' decades ago

The Brohm Ridge development goes back 50 years. It is remarkable how similar the rhetoric is between the developers today and Adi F. Bauer before Whistler existed...see the article below from 1959

Northwest Skier, 1959

Jan 1, 1959, p. 1: "Major Ski Resort Planned For BC's Mount Garibaldi"

"Adi F. Bauer, president of the Garibaldi Development Co., Ltd., announced plans for a major winter resort on the slopes of Mt Garibaldi. The $5.5 million development, on land to be transferred out of Garibaldi Provincial Park, would be seven miles by road from the town of Squamish and would include a six-mile-long tramway, a luxury hotel at 6,000 feet elevation, snowmobiles to carry skiers to nearby glaciers, ten square miles of skiing area served by a two-mile-long chairlift, a mountain top golf course, an enclosed swimming pool and a four-mile-long bobsled run. Future plans call for an additional tramway to the top of Mt Garibaldi, three miles from the proposed hotel"

note: A.F. Bauer tried for three attempts after this initial publication to get the Brohm Ridge ski resort operational. After getting investors together in the late 60's he cut in the runs and built the towers and chalet that reside there today. In 1973 the Province told him to dismantle most of it. In the end, he went to jail for fraud.

How we forget our history sometimes.
