Revelstoke Mountain Resort will be taking over the seldom-used tourism kiosk that is located in Woodenhead Park.
The kiosk was used at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Whistler, then purchased by the City of Revelstoke for about $25,000 using money from the tourism infrastructure program, and installed in Woodenhead Park.
The intent was to use it as a satellite visitor centre on the Trans-Canada Highway, but the Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce found it too difficult to staff and as a result it hasn’t been used in several years.
Now, RMR has offered to move the kiosk to the resort to use it there to provide information to guests about what’s happening in town.
“It is meant to sell the community and it is being moved at their cost,” said Judy Goodman, the executive director of the Chamber of Commerce.
Council agreed to support the move.
A staff report says RMR will pay for the costs of the move, and to staff the kiosk.
