Big Investments in Summer 2016!

Snow News

We have recently renovated our Lodge adding more seating in the cafeteria and lounge, more washrooms and a beautiful stone fireplace. Local architect Peter Mansfield designed the new look and with the help of several local 'Valley' businesses and artisans, we worked all Fall to complete the project. Kealey Tackaberry Log Homes did a beautiful job with the help of Monkman Foundations, Centennial Glass, McKay's Roofing and stonemason Jim Mahoney. We hope you like it.

For the 2015-2016 season we renovated the cafeteria service area.

New for 2016-2017 are two big projects: we are upgrading our Snowmaking system with new snow guns and increased pumping capability in order to make more snow more quickly. And we are installing a new Quad chairlift to replace our Triple chair which will increase our uphill capacity on that side of the mountain!

We always hope for tons of natural snow each season, but if Mother Nature doesn’t co-operate, we don’t have to worry. Once we get below zero temperatures, our snow makers prove to us every year that they are the best in the region. Some seasons can be particularly challenging and our snow team manage to deliver great condition regardless. You’ll get your money’s worth and then some with the purchase of a Mount Pakenham season’s pass. Click here for more details.
