Mount Cain Alpine Park increases guest accommodations

Alpine recreation enthusiasts will soon be able to gather in greater numbers at Mount Cain’s Kapitany Hostel and Old Lodge with new guest beds being added to the resort.

The popular community owned ski hill and alpine recreation destination will be moving its staff housing to a modular building being brought to the site this summer.

The Island Coastal Economic Trust (ICET) is contributing $48,500 through their Economic Infrastructure Program to support the cost of moving and renovating the building.

“Mount Cain’s Kapitany Lodge is a multi-use facility currently operating beyond its capacity,” said ICET Chair Phil Kent.

“The lodge will be renovated to accommodate more guests, allowing it to boost its economic sustainability and attract even more visitors to the region.”
