Mount Baldy Ski Area British Columbia Canada

Mount Baldy Ski Area officially closed for the season on Sunday March 22 / 2015 with the annual Slush Cup event being held at the hill. Mount Baldy Ski Area closed with great support from the local community, who came back to support the hill after it was closed the previous season.

“Baldy Capital Corporation was thrilled to bring back skiing and snowboarding to Mount Baldy Ski Area and felt the 2014 / 15 season was a great success. While operating with limited terrain this season, the ski hill was blessed with great conditions and the snow held up throughout the season. While many other ski hills were closing early based on the lack of snow, Mount Baldy Ski Area was able to stay open late into March due to the tireless efforts of the Mount Baldy Ski Area’s staff and volunteers.” noted Fred Johnston, President of Baldy Capital Corporation.

Baldy Capital Corporation took on the management of the hill in mid-December and it was a race to get open after being closed the previous year. Baldy Capital Corporation understood that this year’s operations would not be a profitable endeavor, but felt it was important to showcase to the local community that the hill was back operating and there was a new committed to bring affordable skiing to the community.

 Baldy Capital Corporation spent this season getting more familiar with the hill and learning from the local community what they would like to see the hill become in the future. Baldy Capital Corporation quickly learned that there is something very unique about Mount Baldy Ski Area which brings families back year after year.

 

 Looking forward to next season Baldy Capital Corporation anticipates all of the skiable terrain to be open and the management team will be working over the summer on some new initiatives to include:

 

·         New ski and snowboard rental equipment

·         Hosting of more schools throughout the year and enhancing the Learn to Ski programs

·         Developing new partnerships with local non-profit and charity organizations

·         Hosting a Stay in School program which would partner at risk youth with local mentors, for a fun day of skiing and mentorship

·         Mount Baldy Ski Area will be offering the opportunity for corporations to book the entire hill during the days the hill is closed to the general public (Monday through Thursday). This will offer corporations a chance to host their staff, suppliers, and clients for a full day of skiing, with the entire hill at their personal disposal. This package will include lifts tickets, rentals, food and beverage, and a fun and interactive ski race

·         Development of affordable “Ski and Stay” packages in partnership with our twelve hotel partners in Oliver and Osoyoos

·         Introduction of a new and affordable food and beverage menu for the cafeteria and bar areas

·         Introduction of a discount ski card in which the purchaser will receive a number of free days on the hill and a substantial discount on lift tickets for the remaining ski visits

 

“Baldy Capital Corporation understands that we have a lot of work to accomplish this off season to make sure we are offering a quality experience for the 2015 / 16 season and beyond. As part of this commitment to improve, Baldy Capital Corporation is also working on plans to have a new day lodge in place for the 2016 / 17 season. These plans are still in the preliminary stages but the management team feels it is important to get a new day lodge in place to improve on the overall skier experience.” stated Johnston

 Baldy Ski Area and Baldy Capital Corporation wants to thank the entire community for their continued support and looks forward to offering a new and improved Mount Baldy Ski Area next season.
