Mt. Timothy open for season

Mt. Timothy Ski Area’s new general manager Caroline Sherrer is excited to be back at a smaller, family-oriented ski hill.

With more than 20 years in the ski industry spanning locations throughout the U.S. and Canada, Mt. Timothy Ski Area’s new general manager Caroline Sherrer is excited to be back at a smaller, family-oriented ski hill.

“I started out in Oregon, then moved into Colorado, then eventually made it to Silver Star in B.C.,” she said, adding she’s moved to Mt. Timothy from her most recent position in Valemount.

Sherrer said the very first hill she worked at was a community ski hill and that’s what prompted her to stay in the industry.

“I’ve worked at all sizes but I really enjoy the smaller hills,” she said, noting this is her first general manager position.

“You’re not just stuck in one job. You know everybody.

“I’m very excited and it’s a neat thing having a community non-profit ski hill. Everybody’s putting a lot of time and effort in and it’s a good thing for the community.”

Mt. Timothy Ski Area is slated to have a soft opening today, Dec. 18.

“The T-bar will be running Friday with regular operating hours,” she said.

On Saturday, Dec. 19, the chairlift will be operating.

“We’ll continue to be open right on through the holidays,” Sherrer said, adding the hill will be open every day, except Christmas day, until Jan. 3.

Mt. Timothy Ski Area is also introducing a new head chef, Mike Sonier, this season.

Sonier, originally from New Brunswick, and his company, Edible Coast, support local farmers, local suppliers and utilize sustainable products in its dishes.

Also, Mt. Timothy Ski Area is currently offering a 30 to 50 per cent off sale in its pro shop.

For hours of operation and more information on the hill visit www.skitimothy.com. The ski hill also operates a Facebook page featuring snow reports at “Mt. Timothy Ski Area.”
