May 4, 2018

Now that we are certain the ski season is over, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to all our skiers for your patronage, your smiles, and friendly waves – we are honoured to share our trails with this wonderful ski community. To spare you from another barrage of verbosity and overly loquacious missive (with random moose themed interjections), here are some numbers instead of words to summarize this past season:


  • Alpina Sherpa: 1249 km, 126 hours
  • Pisten Bully: 1198 km, 209 hours
  • Gator: 235km, 27 hours
  • Total = 2682 km, 362 hours (average 7.4 km/h)

Season pass scans:

We had many skiers with an impressive number of ski days, including 6 skiers scanning over 40 times, 5 skiers with 50 – 60 scans, and our winner with an incredible 91 ski visits!! This intrepid skier will receive a complimentary season pass for 2018 – 2019.Thanks to all for scanning in when you ski!

Please note that our rental ski equipment sale will continue through this weekend, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm daily; see below for details. Thanks again for a great ski season!

See you on the trails!
