Get ready!

Jan. 29 @ 6:30pm: The snow started before noon and hasn’t let up yet! It’s a heavy, base building snow that should be good for opening South Side, Chickadee and Tbar tomorrow! Gooey opened today on manmade snow. Come on out. Its going to be a fun day of skiing on new snow. Join us for Apres Ski from 2-5pm with Award winning artist Jared Lutes. And if you’re a Freestyle Ski parent, we’ll see you in the Port Greville Room at 3pm for our annual Wine & Cheese.

Robbie Burns Day Saturday

Wear a Kilt & Ski for FREE on Robbie Burns Day this Saturday, Jan. 23. Ski Wentworth celebrates our Scottish heritage with haggis, a fun kilted race, games for kids, live music and more! Don’t have a kilt? We have a limited number of kilts for rent with proceeds going to Children’s Wish Foundation. Making Robbie Burns Day even more special – we’ll be opening more trails! Weffie, Chickadee and Beaver will be open on Saturday. That takes the trail count up to 10. Plus we’ll have the TBar running. It’s going to be an incredible weekend of skiing, riding and haggis! See you here.

More trails to open

We’re lovin’ this colder weather and snow! Helter Skelter gets pushed out Thursday night to be open for skiing and riding on Friday. The Sugar Shack is almost ready to go. It will be open during the day Saturday. We’re currently making snow on Black Fly, Feffie, Robins, Lower Chickadee, Rosebowl Terrain Park and top of Beaver. Wednesday’s snow provided a nice base, but we still need more snow to open trails without the manmade stuff. Hopefully Saturday’s storm will drop another 20+cm on us. Fingers crossed!
