Winter Session – Possible Facility Closure Annoucement

Civic Centre Roof Concerns

Earlier this month the City learned of deficiencies with the Civic Center roof structure. Read the City’s Notice here. The simplified explanation is that the Civic Centre was built to codes with only about 1/2 the snow load limits that current building codes require. Recent engineer inspections have determined the roof has likely reached maximum snow loads during past winters.

City’s Plan of Action

During the winter months, snow accumulation on the roof will be monitored.

  • So long as snow accumulation remains under the specified amount – operations will continue as normal.
  • When accumulation exceeds the specified amount, the Civic Centre will be closed.
  • If / when a closure occurs – Glacier Gymnastics Club will cancel classes.

Snow Load Updates

We will maintain a website as well as email regular updates about snow accumulation on the roof. Visit the Snow Load Closures Webpage

Contact us at info@glaciergymnastics.com or 250-352-2227 if you have any questions.
