Mt Seymour Resorts Ltd Announces Smoke Free Policy for the 2016/17 Season

North Vancouver, BC: Mt Seymour Resorts will be introducing a new smoke free policy for the 2016-17 season. The new policy prohibits guests and staff from smoking anywhere within the Mt Seymour Controlled Recreation Area including lift lines, chairlifts, ski runs, snowshoe trails, parking lots, buildings and around the Base area.

This new smoke-free policy was created in collaboration with Vancouver Coastal Health and will prohibit smoking and vaping for all guests and staff within our Controlled Recreation Area. We have a responsibility to our guests and employees to provide a safe and healthy environment for work and play.

We recognize that this maybe a challenge for some staff who currently smoke or vaporize and we will help them access the resources they need to quit smoking if that is their wish. There are many programs available through the Province of British Columbia which provide counselling, support and 12 weeks of free smoking cessation products.

Eddie Wood, General Manager of Mt Seymour Resorts Ltd, commented, ‘Our guests visit Mt Seymour to enjoy our spectacular scenery, breathe in our clean mountain air, and take part in recreational exercise. We believe that the majority of our guests do not want to breathe in second-hand smoke and as a family mountain we want to provide the best experience we can for our guests.’
