Ski chat board hosts debate over ‘warming hut’ drink
A discussion on a board about the new ski chutes on a Richardson ski resort is getting a little heated, and some guests are accusing the board of racism.
The discussion started with a member of the board asking what people thought of the warmer-than-usual conditions in the area.
“The question of ‘warming huts’ in Richardsons are great because we’ve got the snow and the weather and we’ve been doing this for quite some time now, and we need to make sure that it’s as good as we can, and this has been a great experience,” said board member Michael Jankowski.
“But when we’re talking about the climate, I mean it’s a climate change issue, not an environmental issue, and so when we talk about warming huts, the only way that we’re going to solve it is to get rid of the climate change that we’ve created in the region.”
The conversation moved to whether the board has made any decisions to make the warmer temperatures more comfortable for people in the warmer months, and it ended up turning into a discussion about the board’s board-owned cooling hut.
“They do have one on the property and we’re not sure whether they’re making a profit from it or not, so they’re in the business of selling these coolers,” said Jankowksi.
The board is selling the cooler for $75.99 at the board shop, which is located on the Richardsen ski area’s north slope.
“I would say that they have a problem with that, because they’re selling a product that they’re charging more money for, and that’s something that should be brought up to the board,” said one guest.
“So I think we need a change in that way of doing things, I think the board needs to get out and get a climate statement and get people to buy into that, and not think that this is going to be something that we have to solve on our own,” said another guest.
The conversation went on for several minutes before one guest suggested the board should start making money by selling its coolers for the price of ice cream.
The topic of warmer- than-usual temperatures in the Richdsons has been on the board for more than a year now, with many of the members of the community being concerned about the changes in the weather, and the board is trying to make changes to make it as comfortable as possible for its members.
But it seems the discussion got heated after a guest asked the board members if the board had made any changes to the ski area to help it make warmer temperatures possible.
“No, we have not,” said Board member Michael Kallstrom.
“That’s a very common question,” said guest Robert Boudreau.
“It’s very difficult to get an answer from a board member.
We don’t know if we have the right answer for you,” said Kallstrons lawyer, Mike Boudreaux.
Boudreau said he wants to see the board take action to make warmer weather possible, but he said he doesn’t think the decision to make money from the cooler is fair.
“You’re looking at a business that’s doing business in the north-west and is doing a business with some of the wealthiest people in Canada, and you’re looking to make a profit off of that.
And you’re saying to the people of Richards, ‘look, we’re taking a risk here, we don’t have the money, we can’t sell it, we should not sell it.
And so you’re taking away something that the board could have sold to other businesses, that they could have made money off of, and maybe it would be a better solution than the solution that you’re offering now,’ said Boudreeaux.”
And you’re making it worse than it needs to be, because if we could have brought in something to help the board, to make this better, it would have been better.
“In a statement, the board said: “The board has always supported the Richdson Ski Area and the people that live there.
The board does not tolerate racism, homophobia, sexism or any form of discrimination, including the board-operated Chilliwack Resort in B.C.””
We take pride in our skiing areas and we know how to make our resorts feel like they belong to the community.
The Chilliwacks have always been welcoming to all guests, and our guests have always enjoyed skiing in the Chilliwaks.
“The board says its board-run Chilliwakes is a different business than its board owned ski areas.”
We do not own the Chillis. “
We are not a board.
We do not own the Chillis.
