Visitors get a chance to pick up abandoned items from Mission resort

BY , Feb 4, 2020 11:27 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Visitors who were helicoptered out of a Fraser Valley-area ski resort over the weekend had the chance this morning to return to pick up abandoned items -- including their vehicles.

The Sasquatch Mountain Resort near Mission was cut off Friday night when a mudslide swept away a section of the only road into the area.

Crews had managed to build a single-lane route over the slide by yesterday freeing the remaining guests, staff and area residents who had not left by helicopter on Saturday or Sunday.

A pilot-car led vehicles back up the mountain early this morning, providing an opportunity for owners to collect their abandoned cars, trucks and ski gear and the convoy had descended the mountain by mid-morning so the road could be closed again, allowing crews to resume work on the extensive repairs.
