Snow Clearing

The Pemberton Airport is primarily a summer facility, with only limited maintenance performed during the winter months, such as apron clearing in case of emergency. At Regular Council Meeting No. 1172, held January 23, 2007, the following resolution was passed with respect to Airport Snow Clearing:

THAT a policy be established whereby if an individual wishes to make arrangements for snow clearing at the Airport the entire runway must be cleared, at their own expense, under the supervision and at the discretion of the Works Manager and to the standards set by Transport Canada and the Village of Pemberton.

THAT the Village schedule runway clearing at the discretion of the Works Manager and upon the following conditions:

  • promising weather conditions with several days without snow fall
  • the Village core is sufficiently cleared and tidied
  • availability of staff and equipment.

Please contact the Village on at 604-894-6135 or if you would like to make arrangements to have the runway cleared (subject to the above policy).
