Weiner Take All at Red Mountain

Not only is Red Mountain Resort getting a new ski chairlift, it is getting a new outdoor culinary experience.

Not only is Red Mountain Resort getting a new ski chairlift, it is getting a new outdoor culinary experience.

Called Weiner Take All, the new establishment is seeking a liquor licence to begin operation at the base of the new Gray Mountain ski runs for the upcoming season.

Council reviewed the application for the facility and councilor Kathy Moore saw its approval as adding to downhill ski on Red Mountain.

She said there have not been a lot of update from Red on its activities.

“Because it is our watershed and it is a delicate area … they have an environmentalist on the project,” said Moore.

In order to approve a food primary (restaurant) licence application, the Liquor Control and Licensing branch (LCLB) requires a resolution from the local government commenting on the application.

The area is currently zoned M-Al—mountain activity area. Eating and drinking establishments are a permitted use in the zone.

Council considered the Red Mountain Resort Weiner Take All liquor license food primary (restaurant) licence application in respect to the potential for noise, impact on the community, views of residents and whether the late hours or patron-participation entertainment may result in the restaurant being operated in a manner this is contrary to its primary purpose.

A city staff report dated Nov. 7 recommended that the application be approved.

“The location and operating hours of the establishment gives little concern for potential for increased noise and impact on the community. Location of the establishment precludes any concerns of residents (see attached map) therefore, advertisement to seek the views of residents is not necessary in respect to this application.

Red Mountain Resort’s Weiner Take All is applying to the province’s Liquor Control and Licensing Branch for a license to operate a small food and beverage service at the base of their new ski lift.

Hours of operation will be 10 a.m.-4 p.m. daily during the ski season.
