If you’re eager to hit the slopes this season, the wait is almost over at Edmonton Ski Club.

After a nearly two year hiatus, the community-based ski club is set to reopen in early December to welcome guests back to into the powder.

“We are aiming to be up and running on December 7 with the goal of being the most affordable and accessible ski and snowboard experience in the Edmonton area,” said Carolina Sledz, president of Edmonton Ski Club.

“We have a dedicated group of team members working to make this a reality. The ESC is an excellent place to try skiing or snowboarding for the first time, or to work on improving one’s skills.”

This year, the club has a new carpet lift, as well as a refurbished t-bar, to ensure everyone’s visits are fun and safe.

“With financial and program support from both the municipal and provincial governments, we have been investing time and money into ensuring that the hill and facilities are in great condition for our guests,” said Sledz.

Visitors the club will be delighted to hear that this year, there will be programs for skiers and snowboarders of all levels this season, along with holiday camps and planned special event evenings — including a special visit from Olympian Jennifer Heil on December 26.

Edmonton Ski Club will also welcome the Flying Canoe races back to the club at the end of January.

Flying Canoe Festival is a cultural, creative, and interactive event that showcases the culture of First Nations, French-Canadian, and Métis peoples, and the event is a fun chance to see canoes racing down the ski hills at top speed.

Information about the club’s programs, as well as seasons passes, can be found on Edmonton Ski Club’s website.

“The Edmonton Ski Club is an ideal location to enjoy the spectacular river valley during our beautiful winter season,” said Sledz.

“We are starting to make snow and are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to the Edmonton Ski Club.”

So get your winter gear ready, its almost time.
