Hudson Bay Mountain winter season closing with a bang

Ski and snowboard season is winding down this weekend on Hudson Bay Mountain. 

General Manager Lex Rei-Jones said this season was interesting due to less than average snowfall. 

“We had a decent good year all things considered. The snow was good, we were able to stay open, we had good staff.” 

She added the low snowfall was something other ski resorts also struggled with this season. 

“I know a lot of places got hit hard with warm temperatures and so we got to see a lot of people from all over the province and heard some positive reviews from people.” 

This included additional races being held throughout the season due to other resorts in the province being unable to host. 

One popular feature this year was the carpet lift installed last summer. 

“We actually set up a parent holding centre at the bottom of the lift because I had a friend tell me his daughter would keep doing it over and over,” said Rei-Jones. 

Closing the season, the resort is holding its annual Schnai Dai event with a Cowboys vs Aliens theme. 

This also includes free face painting, BBQ, and live music. 

While winter activities won’t continue, the mountain does have plans for this summer. 

“We will be running our chair lift for summer operations weekends in August and September long weekend,” she said. 

This was introduced last year and included a ride up the mountain, BBQ, and a hike back to the base. 

“We are looking to hire for people for these positions this year, so we’ll be posting the jobs for that this June.” 

Also returning this year is the volunteer brushing program and the mountain is starting to plan the next ski and snowboard season. 

“We typically shoot for the first weekend in December so that’s what we’ll be looking at for this year,” said Rei-Jones.
