Skiers and snowboarders in the Cariboo received some welcome news on Sunday as Mt. Timothy Ski Area announced it was ready to open — just in time for the holidays.

The hill received 17 centimetres of fresh snow Saturday night and is currently sitting at a 59-centimetre base.

With early-season conditions still, management is launching a soft opening opting to open 10 runs currently.

Those runs include: Big Easy, Ricochet, Big Dipper, Slow Motion, Cariboo, Chilcotin, Wrangler, Paradise and Split Decision.

“We will have discounted day tickets based off last year’s mid-week rates,” management stated in its snow report.

During the holidays Mt. Timothy will be closed Christmas day, however, will be open on Boxing Day and on the days to follow.
