The team at the Glen Eden Ski and Snowboard Centre wants to invite everyone to come and check out the facilities and programs for the upcoming season at an Open House on Sat. Nov. 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the main chalet.
People attending the Glen Eden Open House will be able to tour the facilities – the visitors centre, the hill, rental shop – and see where lessons take place. Staff will be available to answer your questions about all aspects of the operation including the popular lesson programs.
“The idea behind the Open House is to give people a chance to see all the programs and services offered at Glen Eden and the phenomenal winter recreation opportunities that are so close to home,” said Gene Matthews, Manager Kelso/Glen Eden. “Glen Eden continues to invest in providing the best on snow experiences for our guests through world class snowmaking and grooming, along with a $50,000 investment in new terrain park features for this year.”
A number of displays will be set up at the Nov. 6 Open House, including the new terrain park features that snowboarders will be able to enjoy this season. You can climb up in the cab of one of the groomer machines that prepare the hill every night for our guests to have great ski conditions during the day.
Patrol Services members will have a booth set up and will be delivering safety information, and of course no Open House would be complete without food. Glen Eden is offering Open House guests a complimentary barbeque with hot dogs, coffee and drinks.
Despite mild winter weather Glen Eden had one of its busiest seasons on record last season with over 260,000 visitors, and is one of the top five visited ski and snowboard resorts/areas of the over 60 operations in Ontario. It is also one of the more affordable locations, with season passes starting at only $99, and daily lift tickets beginning at only $20.
