January 20th was a milestone for Georgian Peaks.  Our Master Members overwhelmingly supported the proposal to proceed with a new Lodge. 84% of our Master Members participated in the vote and over 75% voted in favour of Project Legacy.  The Board of Directors is extremely encouraged with the result of the vote and the support of the Membership to proceed with a new Lodge.  

New Members joining The Georgian Peaks Club are not subject to the Project Legacy assessment. 

LET THE BUILD BEGIN!

5.30.2019: Construction on the foundation of the new lodge started Monday and excitement is building at the Club! The next step is moving our main power line from the Main Lodge to the Alpine Centre. Commencing Monday, June 3rd, there will be a scheduled power outage while our Outside Operations Team move the line.  This move will take between two to four days to complete. As a result there will be no telephone and access to e-mails will be limited.  

Stay tuned to our Facebook and Instagram pages for more updates as construction continues throughout the summer!

MAY  UPDATE: 


Our Project Legacy Team, has worked closely with the Mayor of The Town of Blue Mountains Alar Soever, Councilor Rob Sampson, and Judy Rhodes-Munk of the Niagara Escarpment Commission to resolve our planning issues.

We have been working with our Project Architect, Hossack and Associates and our Construction Manager, The Dalton Company and our current budget comes in on target. Our new lodge will be approximately a 39,980 square foot building with an overall project cost of $12 million (including contingency allowance) The building is costing $235 per square foot. Bank financing has been negotiated with the Bank of Nova Scotia

We have begun preparing the site, and will literally break ground as the augers arrive May 15th to start digging. We will be providing updates about the construction every two weeks, to keep our Members fully informed of our progress.

A few items should be mentioned while we are under construction. Safety is our primary concern. We have provided a construction fence around the site, and only authorized construction personnel are permitted on the site. The first step of construction will be the installation of caissons for the foundations, and as such there will be a large drill rig on site. Please respect the boundaries of the construction fences. Our reports of the progress, combined with a video feed will provide the Members with ample opportunity to view the construction.

While Management and our Staff will do everything to prepare for all eventualities, the reality is, next season will present some challenges. As a Member owned Club, it is also our responsibility to contribute in a positive way to the process of construction. For example, how can you help your fellow Members when it comes to parking? Perhaps ride sharing or leaving the extra car at home. We will be constructing a temporary lot close to the property. Our goal is as little disruption to the Members as possible.

The efforts of so many have allowed us to be in a position to build a new lodge for everyone to enjoy along with our premium ski experience. I would personally like to thank our extraordinary volunteer Board, Management Team and Committee Members. It truly takes a village to raise a roof.
