Thanks to the B.C. Government, Jumbo Glacier ski resort is a step closer to being built.

On Tuesday the province created a resort municipality on the site, as well as a new mayor, new council and administrator were appointed for this community that doesn't yet have any residents.

Proponents say the designation is essential so that land permits can be issued for development on the site.

Oberto Oberti has been working on the proposal since 1990, and has been the driving force behind Jumbo. Host Chris Walker reached him at this office in Vancouver.
