E-mail Print

January 25, 2011

Smithers, BC: The purchase of Hudson Bay Mountain Adventures Inc and related entities was completed

by Northern Resorts Management Inc in late December. ‘Northern’ is owned equally by Lorne Borgal,

Gary Mathiesen and Alfredo Hermano.

In Hudson Bay Mountain they share a common vision based on the strong position of the resort in the

market of Northern BC. They see a mountain with the natural characteristics that support long term

development and operation of a year-round resort. Anchored in the picturesque town of Smithers and

the stunningly beautiful Bulkley Valley with the best season long powder of any resort in the Province,

they are confident that they can bring a vibrant new era to Hudson Bay Mountain.

The Grey starring Liam Neeson starts production in Smithers.

Director Joe Carnahan's production on his original screenplay The Grey has started in Smithers with production crews creating a locational set on Hudson Bay Mountain and a second shooting location at the Smithers Airport. The cast is led by Liam Neeson and features Dallas Roberts, James Badge Dale, Dermot Mulroney, Frank Grillo, Nonso Anozie and Joe Anderson. The story follows a crew of oil-rig roughnecks led by Neeson and left stranded by a plane crash right in the hunting zone of a pack of rogue wolves on the frozen Alaskan tundra. Here’s what director Carnahan has to say about his latest project: “The wolves have a territorial range of 300 miles, and they will run you out if you cross that. If you’re within 30 miles of their den as is the case here, they will try to kill you."

The Smithers District Chamber of Commerce, Tourism Smithers and the Bulkley Valley Economic Development Authority had area promotional material prepared for the cast and crew including menus from all area restaurants, personal services and recreational opportunities to take part in during their stay. The group also prepared window decals that welcomed the cast and crew and provided them to businesses throughout Smithers. We're thrilled to host the cast and crew and showcase our wonderful community.

Northwest Regional Advisory Committee Video on Benefits of the Northwest Transmission Line

E-mail Print

This video shines a light on the many opportunities and benefits that will occur throughout the north once the Northwest Transmission Line is operating. We welcome the suppliers and companies who will make their way to our community during the construction phase. Smithers is a great place to live and work with boundless cultural and sporting events. Just last week alone Smithereens were treated to the performances of the Beatles (well, they sounded and looked like them); celtic star and author Mary Murphy; Smithers own Theresa Pasaluko performing with amenity migrant James Lacey (he's from Vancouver but fell in love with it here and now we can enjoy his musical talents); and the sold out magnificent MZjudged Contest with 19 of our local men/women raising over $27,000 for Domestic Peace in a hilarious fashion and talent show. From the screams of our Steelhead hockey fans to the grace of our creative dancers you'll enjoy the culture and the people of Smithers. Oh, and try out one of the many restaurants from Japanese to Viennese, Mexican to Ukranian. (Click here for the video)
