Eastern Canada Is Having A Terrible No Good Ski Season So Far

Mother Nature is sending their business... downhill.

Posted on

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.

“This is the first time we’ve ever reopened summer attractions,” Tara Lovell of Blue Mountain Resort told Global News.

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.

Ugh, terrible. No thank you.


"We know everyone is really keen to get out on the mountain and so are we! Mother nature is not really helping us at the moment," reads the latest blog post from the good folks at Crabbe Mountain in New Brunswick.

Meanwhile in British Columbia, Kicking Horse and other ski hills opened early thank to massive snowfalls. "For the first time since inception, we will offer top to bottom riding in November," they posted on Instagram.
