Albertans have endured a lot of challenges in the last five years, from oil and gas uncertainty to pandemic shut-downs, but lately Chris Artibello has noticed a swelling optimism. The CEO of Belterra Land Company, spearheading The Slopes master-planned community on Sylvan Lakes’ northeastern bank, says there’s been a surge in interest in recent months.
“We never anticipated 2021, being THE year — our phones have been ringing off the hook. We’re in shock, but at the same time, so happy to see the Slopes’ vision finally come to life,” Artibello says. “Timing is everything. Now people want not only more space to be outside, but also to connect their families to the natural environment in a very real way. Working from home with the subtle sounds of the lake in the background feels like the future for many of us.”
So The Slopes is hosting a party, inviting locals to get reacquainted with the area while enjoying some free family fun!
