Mt. Timothy pushes back opening day

Mt. Timothy Ski Area, originally scheduled to open this weekend, has been forced to push back its opening day due to warm temperatures.

Mt. Timothy Ski Area, originally scheduled to open this weekend, has been forced to push back its opening day due to warm temperatures.

“It is with huge disappointment that we make this announcement,” stated the Mt. Timothy Ski Society on the ski hill’s website.

“Although we have done everything that we can to ensure that the mountain is ready for opening this upcoming weekend, Dec. 13, the weather has other plans.”

The warm weather has melted the hill’s snow base to a point where the society said it would be unsafe for hill patrons.

As a result the new tentative opening day is Saturday, Dec. 20.

Troll Mountain near Quesnel has also had to postpone its opening day due to the weather.
