Ski Mount Cain.
Vancouver Island's ONLY 100% Canadian owned and operated ski resort!
November 19th. Come on down to the Waverly Hotel in Vancouver Island's only ski mountain town, Cumberland. We'll be celebrating the return of Ullr with costumes, soft-core ski movies, and throwing looines in the bucket for Mt. Cain's hill grooming efforts. Be there or be square!
Hoooooo Baby it's starting to snow! You know what this means...
As the only fully Canadian-owned and operated ski resort left on Vancouver Island, we know all about bacon, maple syrup, walking uphill both ways to school in the snow, and getting your tongue stuck to metal posts on a dare. We also know about bottomless powder, and low-to-no lift lineups. Come summon in Ullr at the Mount Cain Hill Brushing Fundraiser at the Waverly Hotel in Cumberland on Thursday November 19th for some fun times and ski movies. Either that or catch us at the Victoria Snowfest at MEC in Victoria on November 22nd. We'll be giving away skis and day pass prizes for the "Lucky" few.
Training weekend is November 28/29. An optimistic opening is December 5th...pending snow of course.
And for you out of work ski bums, as winter slowly approaches, we are calling for staff and volunteers. There are paid positions available for liftees, ski shop staff, ski instructors (C.S.I.A 1) . We also are looking for a few more volunteer ski patrollers (OFA 2 or 3 if possible.) We are also forming a new volunteer 'lift patrol', which will be similar in structure to volunteer ski patrol, but in charge of lift maintenance and repair. If you have mechanical aptitude, please consider this important role. We have a really fun great crew forming so come be part of the action.
To apply please contact:
Stuart has been up on the hill with the brush-hog making it super smooth and between his efforts and our volunteer brush crew and a generous donation of a work party from Strategic, we will be able to open with less snow coverage this year. Some of the brush was 7 feet high! Fortunately it's going to snow a lot probably so, this will just help us open earlier.
Ski the Island's best powder. Buy local. Stay local.
And viva Woss Vegas!
