Verdant Creek Fire Update, Sunshine Village Area:
by Banff Sunshine Village
August 1st, 2017
Banff Sunshine Village remains closed today, Aug 1st, as Parks Canada and BC Parks work to contain the Verdant Creek Fire.
The Verdant Creek Fire remains active on the west side of the Continental Divide in Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park. It has not crossed into Alberta or the Sunshine Village area.
At this point, we do not know when we will reopen. We are under a superintendents closure, we are in contact with Parks Canada and will let you know more about our summer operations once we know more.
We’re hopeful that Mother Nature cooperates, and provides some much-needed rain to our area. At present, the Weather Network is predicting rain for later today. We hope that the forecast comes to fruition. If you know a rain dance, please dance away and share it with our social media!!
We will continue to provide news as it becomes available. Stay tuned to our social media.
