From now until the snow is too deep to work in, you might see some fires burning in the forested areas surrounding the resort. In an effort to increase public safety and protect property from a major forest fire, Landmark Solutions Ltd. will be following a prescription burn plan for the community. This preventative measure involves thinning out the heavy surface fuels that have accumulated over the years. These efforts will improve the natural barriers and reduce the continuity of fuel loads which in turn reduces the wildfire risk to the Big White Community. The open forest conditions will also increase the availability and diversity of the wildlife habitat.
Local residents are welcome to the firewood which will be created as a result of these activities, please contact the fire hall at 250-765-3090 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 250-765-3090 end_of_the_skype_highlighting for more information
