As excitement mounts for the upcoming ski season, work is underway at Mt. Timothy Ski Area in preparation.

Debbie Dengel, president of the Mt. Timothy Ski Society, said throughout the month of October the MTSS has been and will continue to hold work bees on Saturdays beginning at 9 a.m.

“We’re welcoming any help,” Dengel said. “The target this Saturday is firewood. If you’ve got a wood splitter or an axe just come on up and join us.”

Last Saturday Williams Lake residents Ed Kozuki and his daughter, Janice, attended and washed all the logs on the inside of the lodge. Directors also participated, Dengel said, noting some wood on the deck was replaced and brushing crews are working on the hill.

“We’re just trying to get the enthusiasm rolling for the season,” she said.

Following the Timberland Alpine Ski Club Ski Swap on Saturday, Nov. 1, which is open from 2 to 5 p.m. in the Gibraltar Room, the MTSS will host its annual general meeting at 7 p.m.

“Ski season is coming and we’re starting to get excited,” she said. “We always have room for volunteers and the AGM is open to the public. That same night we’ll have our election of officers so that could open up some doors for a few people.”

Questions and concerns from the public are welcome at the meeting, along with an opportunity to meet management and members of the board of directors.
