The spire of Jumbo Mountainlooms over what could become the townsite of the new Mountain Resort Municipality of Jumbo, which was written into existence on Monday, November 19th. The provincial order-in-council also named three valley residents as the appointed mayor and council of the new community. The move brings the proposed 5,925-hectare ski resort one step closer to reality, despite concerns over the loss of local say on the land use decision. Pioneer file photo.
