The RMOW is pleased to announce that funding was secured through the Tourism Dependent Community Fund provided by the Government of British Columbia for snowmaking equipment at Lost Lake Park.

This project includes a connection to an existing water supply line, piping, and connection infrastructure for snowmaking equipment. The system will also provide seasonal fire protection. In addition, the project is intended in the future to include a micro-hydro generation plant to develop electricity to operate the snowmaking system and complement the park’s electrical needs. 

Scope of work

  • Installation of water pipe from the tie-in point to Lost Lake cul-de-sac.
  • Installation of water line and hydrant in events area in Lost Lake Park.


This project is currently in the construction phase.
