Mt. Timothy Ski Area delays opening of ski hill

Technical issue with chairlift to blame

Season ticket holders hoping to salvage what was remaining of their ski and snowboard plans at the Mt. Timothy Ski Area this holiday season will have to continue to be patient.

The local ski hill announced Saturday on its website and Facebook that the hill will not open this week due to technical issues with the chairlift.

The social media post states the society is now aiming for a Jan. 6 opening date.

Earlier this season, more than $86,000 was raised in pledges, contributions and donations from local residents and businesses after the ski society announced the hill was at risk of not opening for the 2017/2018 season due to financial reasons.
