The Mount Timothy Recreational Resort is scheduled to open on Friday, December 17, provided there is sufficient snow.

Launna Bell, assistant manager at Mount Timothy, said her team was putting the finishing touches on the ski slope. The rental skis are waxed, the pro shop organized, the tickets printed and the ski lift developed.

“We probably have about four inches of snow near the lodge, but a good eight inches at the top of the mountain, so we need everyone to do their snow dance a bit more,” Bell said. “I would like to see a lot of snow because we have rocky terrain.

Bell said they plan to be open during the holidays, except Christmas Day, until January 2. Season passes this year cost $ 915 for adults, $ 660 for youth ages 13-18, $ 462 for juniors ages 6-12, and $ 610 for seniors 65. 79.

Day passes cost $ 66 for adults, $ 49 for youth, $ 39 for juniors, and $ 49 for seniors. Children under five and over 80 ski for free.

“We hope to see as much of it as possible, we would like to see the hill packed,” Bell said. “We’ve made a lot of new changes on the hill and we’re really excited to bring the audience here and try everything.”

One of the most recent changes to the hill was in mid-November when Over the Edge Excavating came in and swept large sections of the hill’s black diamond tracks, clearing them of the undergrowth. With the inclusion of a new ticket kiosk at the lower lodge, Bell said this season skiers can purchase lift passes outside and then head straight for the hill.

COVID-19 protocols such as wearing masks in rental lodges will still be in place, Bell said, with a major change from last year. Those wishing to use the cafeteria must now have proof of vaccination due to authorization from the station.
