The 2020/21 winter season at Mt. Timothy Recreation Resort has officially kicked off.
Patrons of the local Cariboo outdoor destination lined the parking lot with vehicles and spread out on the mountain for excellent conditions throughout the weekend.
“I’m overwhelmed with the support,” manager Launna Bell said Sunday evening.
“The enthusiasm has been amazing. Everyone is just so happy the hill is open.”
COVID-19 restrictions and precautions are in place at Mt. Timothy, including mandatory face masks or coverings while in the buildings, in lift lineups and on the lifts.
“Everyone’s doing their part. We have our signs everywhere that say, ‘Don’t be the reason we lose the season’ and we’ve embraced that. Let’s all work together.”
Bell said while COVID-19 has created challenges, she believes it has also reminded residents of the great recreational opportunities available in the Cariboo.
“You learn to appreciate things close to home.”
The road into the resort is wide and in great condition.
Mt. Timothy Recreation Resort is now open, except for Christmas Day, through until Jan. 3.
