Arctic Air good for resort owners

Top rated CBC TV series Arctic Air has been renewed for another season and that’s good news for tourist operators in British Columbia.

Top rated CBC TV series Arctic Air has been renewed for another season and that’s good news for tourist operators in British Columbia, says Echo Valley Ranch owner Norman Dove.

His property near Jesmond was the site of extensive filming for the Arctic Air series this past winter and he hopes to see the cast and crew of the series back again.

“We had 74 crew members filming on our air strip and in the woods for a week,” says Dove, “and that was during a time of year when we would not have many guests. It was great for business.  We could only sleep about half, so the rest of the crew booked up a lot of rooms in Clinton.

“A TV series like that pumps a lot of money into local economies.”
