Blue Mountain ski hill in Ontario is running a promotion for lift tickets on its website, which makes sense until you look in the upper right corner of the page: "Open Trails: 0."
Many ski hills in Ontario, News Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland are in the midst of a terrible, no good season thanks to warm temperatures and, if you want to be technical about it, no goddamn snow.
This is what Blue Mountain looks like now. In mid-December. They have no choice but to reopen some of their summer activities, including the mini putt course, zip lines and climbing wall.
From Ontario eastward it's just sad, barren hills. Over at Ski Martock in Nova Scotia, they're posting Facebook pics of cross-country trails that look wonderful... for a spring walk.
Here's what Ski Wenworth in Nova Scotia looks like in the main photo on their website.
Current status: muddy with sad-ass patches of snow.
Let's head to Newfoundland and look at Marble Mountain. It boasts 39 runs and 5 lifts, none of which are open.
