We are CLOSED for the season. You may be wondering why we are not
open for this last week of winter. Well...our apologies. Who knew it would snow
so much and stay so cold this late in the year.
A brief explanation on why we are closed.
First, it has been one of our longest seasons...we opened early (Nov. 10), the first
Edmonton area open for the season, and our scheduled closing date is always the
middle of March. In the past 25 years, we have never been open during spring break
as we always melt down prior to the end of March. Normally, we are melting down
rapidly in March and even into last week, conditions were slowly deteriorating,
run-off lakes were forming on the Bunny Hill, and there were hardly any customers
except our school groups and lessons.
For our staff, we have to give a couple of weeks of notice on closing so they can
find other work, and with the forecast and conditions, we kept our original March
17 closing date as our school groups were all wrapped up and lesson programs were
And then, on Thursday March 14, the snow came and it stayed cold. Just too late
for us to take advantage of as we wouldn't be able to staff up enough to stay open
for this last week of nice conditions. Sorry we missed it!
Cold Weather Policy
Our COLD WEATHER policy is that if daytime temperatures are -25C or colder, if windchills
are colder than -25C, or our school groups have cancelled for the day due to the
cold, the ski hill may close. Please call to confirm before coming out if temperatures
are very cold. The tubing park will close if temperatures are -20C or colder.
Closed for the year.
