The Salmo ski hill opened for the season on Tuesday, January 6 thanks to the recent snow storm. The main run is open and groomed for skiers and a volunteer said people from all over the area have come for night skiing keeping the hill busy since opening night. While the hill usually opens around December 20, the lack of snow delayed the start of the season.
Once the temperatures have cooled, the hill expects to have the rest of the runs ready to be groomed for the weekend. A local favourite established in 1962, the Salmo Ski Hill is a volunteer-run and non-profit hill offering five runs. There’s a concession with homemade food and a lodge with seating.
The hill is open for night skiing Monday to Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and open Saturday and Sunday 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
