It was a terrifying weekend for many travellers as a BC mudslide took place on a major highway which leads to a popular ski resort, Sasquatch Mountain. As a result of the massive mudslide, hundreds of people were stuck at the Fraser Valley ski lodge. A number of people also opted to pay for helicopter shuttles out of the area. Photos and videos of the incident have surfaced online and the damages are significant.\nOn Friday evening, heavy rain triggered the mudslide that washed out a large part of Hemlock Valley Road just outside of Agassiz, B.C.\nCBC News spoke with an eye witness who claimed that there was so much rain and mud that the road looked like a river.\nDue to the mudslide, there was no vehicle access to the resort, which caused hundreds of people to be stranded at the Sasquatch Mountain Resort.\nAccording to the Vancouver Sun, about 250 people were evacuated by helicopter from the resort on Sunday, February 2, alone.\nA spokesperson with the resort told the Vancouver Sun that there were three helicopters shuttling people off the hill that day with another 80 people booked to leave Monday.\nWhile the victims now have an interesting story to tell their friends back home, getting out of the situation was not cheap.\nThe same spokesperson stated that the helicopter fare was $150 and landed passengers in Chilliwack.\nCBC News is estimating that about 500 people were stuck at the B.C. ski lodge over the weekend.\nTo add to the drama of the entire incident, there was no power for the residents and guests on the mountain.\nBefore power was restored on Sunday, just in time for the Superbowl game, City 1130 News has claimed that people were using back-up generators to provide heat and use food sources.\nREMINDER - Rockwell Drive - CLOSED due to a washout between Dogwood lane and Rockwell Lane.

In one Instagram post, you can see the road has been completely taken out by the mudslide and massive chunks of the asphalt are literally floating in the water.\nView this post on Instagram It’s definitely not something we want to hear and our concern for our guests and future guests is always at the forefront. Thankfully everyone seems quite prepared and there were no injuries, despite a road closure which is super inconvenient and has stranded a lot of travellers. We have extra propane going to our guests and more importantly.. WINE!! I can only hope that this might prompt the new improvements to the road that we have all been anticipating for some time since the approval of the resort expansion. Mother Nature has sure been feisty but I’m proud of our community at #sasquatchmountain for banding together.
