Winter Update

January is coming to an end and we are having a great season so far. The hill is in shape for a long season if the weather cooperates. We had a bit of rain yesterday but it froze up fairly quickly without much snow loss.
We had the unfortunate luck of having to cancel the annual Boreal Cup due to mechanical failure from the chairlift. It was a big disappointment to everyone involved since the conditions on the Downhill were perfect for racing. We are hoping for a long season so that we can go ahead with the Slalom Derby the end of March. The older kids were off at the Dual City Race this past weekend and they are off again to Mont Video for a race this weekend. The upcoming Mealey Classic in Sault Ste. Marie is always a big event for the K’s and J’s.
The Timmins Ski Racers Yuk Yuk’s night is coming up February 3 and is shaping up to be a fun evening. Ticket sales are going well though there are still tickets available at YIG’s, the Timmins Square service desk and the Shopper’s Drug Mart on Algonquin. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door so come on out and bring some friends.
