British Columbia Ski Resorts offer half-price lift tickets on first Family Day

David Lynn, President & CEO, Canada West Ski Areas Association (CWSAA), is pleased to announce the BC Family Ski Promotion on behalf of the Ski Resorts of British Columbia.
"From abundant snow to stunning scenery, BC Ski Resorts offer a diverse variety of world-class skiing. We are very excited to be able to celebrate the first BC Family Day by providing BC Families with the opportunity to experience BC Skiing at half the regular price. We hope that British Columbians take advantage of this fun and healthy way to enjoy the first BC Family Day", said David Lynn, President & CEO, Canada West Ski Areas Association.
On May 28, 2012 B.C. Premier Christy Clark announced that the first BC Family Day would take place be on Monday, February 11, 2013. This established the second Monday in February as a unique day for British Columbians to enjoy Family Day. It also created significant opportunities for the BC Ski and Tourism Industries, by avoiding an overlap with similar holidays in other jurisdictions, on which many BC Ski Resorts are typically operating at capacity.
"We expect the addition of the Family Day holiday will boost the economy and the tourism industry in B.C. This new February holiday is an opportunity for British Columbians to share time with their families while supporting our local ski industry and hotel and food operators. And this is another indicator that ‘Canada Starts Here: The BC Jobs Plan’ is working in our province as we continue to create and support favourable conditions for our labour force", said Pat Bell, Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation. In light of the timing of BC’s new statutory holiday, a group of leading BC Ski Resorts have decided to implement a major promotion on the first BC Family Day. This promotion will provide BC Residents with the opportunity to purchase ½ price lift tickets for use on February 11, 2013:

If David Lynn and the Canada West Ski Area Association care about Canadian families than why are they working so hard to make it impossible for Canadians to get work at their ski hills?
