GOLDENRUSH : Kicking Horse Mountain Resort
GOLDENRUSH, Peter Chrzanowski's documentary film spanning a three year time period in Golden, BC, airs nationally on CLT (Canadian Learning Television) this week.
It's the controversial story of Golden's Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, which went through a difficult transition from a resource based economy (logging/mill town) to becoming a full destination mountain and ski resort.
As Peter says, "Enjoy the politics, as well as spectacular powder and extreme skiing footage."
It airs on Saturday, February 23 at 11 PM ET, repeating at 2 AM ET.
The tour begins at the CPR Steamship Terminal Building, located across the street from the BC Parliament Buildings pictured here. ©SueFrause...
