In a statement coming late Mar. 30, RMR said the resort is experiencing staff shortages and are “unable to open the mountain tomorrow.”

Following the Mar. 29 provincial announcement of closures to indoor dining, fitness classes and of the Whistler-Blackcomb resort, RMR posted an update on their website that said it wouldn’t have the entire mountain open due to staff shortages.

Indoor dining has been closed, but many of the resort’s restaurants remain open for patio or take-out. Details here.

Revelstoke Mountaineer contacted Revelstoke Mountain Resort this afternoon about changes to the schedule, but a spokesperson was not immediately available.

In the statement, the resort said it would provide further updates, stressing the importance of staff and guest safety.
