A roof collapse last night at the Snow Ghost Inn at Big White Ski Resort, BC has forced residents to evacuate. The roof covered an inner atrium and pool area. Thankfully the collapse happened at around 3 am and no one was injured. More on this story from the Vernon Morning Star.
“I’m not on the mountain, but I got a call at 3 a.m. in the morning from the president of the chamber of commerce looking for our assistance to shelter and place the evacuees,” said Michael J. Ballingall, senior vice-president of Big White Ski Resort. “So, we got them into the Village Center Mall. Obviously, if there was no COVID-19 the response probably would have been different. We probably would have put them into a hotel that was closer to the lobby.”
