State Of The Industry

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,


Just another topic to get the board going. Was wondering what the state of the various segments of the canadian industry are like at the moment. I know the logging is pretty slow but whats happening elsewhere in seismic, offshore etc.

*The ski industry is still strong, but only for the hard-core clients, day-skiing is way down.

*The general back-country tourism (mountain huts, etc) have suffered this winter, with the 2 big avalanches, and the threat of war.

*BC forest industries are non existent, *Mining in BC....HA HA HA, Ya right! nada

*BCFS has scaled back to a few offices and people, I suspect that there will be low Admin flying with them,

*BCFS protection remains untouched, but they won''t put anyone or anything on minumums until the entire country is ablaze.

*Our flight seeing was WAY down last year, nobody travelling.

Logging on the BC Coast is steady, no real increase or decrease in flying from last year. BCFS enforcement budget and flying is cut way back, no more during the job courtesy/enforcement visits, just a final visit & charges or kudos to the companies.

Rumours of mining/exploration getting sparked up a bit in the NW for a few 500''s, but nothing definite.

heli-skiing same as 407''s note.....
