The Municipal District (MD) of Bonnyville is reporting that thanks to a large helping of snow this week, and excellent snow making conditions last week, all 13 runs should be open for the weekend. The ski hill, which opened in early December, has been very busy this season thanks to calm winter weather and family-friendly activities at the resort.
The ski hill had a record-breaking day on January 2nd, and the MD reports that the holiday season was busy at the hill. Crowds enjoyed the expanded parking lot, which has made accessing vehicles from the hill easier, as well as, limiting foot traffic on the road. Friday’s are Kid’s Night at the resort, kids can enjoy night skiing, or tubing for $10 for each of these services, a lift pass, rentals, tubing, and group lessons (book ahead for lessons).
At Wednesday’s MD Council meeting, council approved the purchase of a new Snow Cat Groomer. The machine will cost $340,000, with a trade-in value on the old machine of $125,000.
