Planning your visit? Here’s 5 key changes to remember

Temps are dropping, snowmaking has kicked off, and in a few short weeks, we’ll be welcoming you back for another great snow season. Of course, this winter will be different from any before it, and with day ticket sales soon coming online, now is the time to remind our guests of 5 key changes to bear in mind when planning your visit.

Visit our site before the slopes. To help manage capacity, daily lift tickets and rental packages must be purchased online, and season pass holders will need to make reservations prior to arriving at the hill, with links for both coming soon. Snowshoeing? Pay for your trail passes and rentals at the ticket window.

Arrive ready to hit the slopes. Chalet access will be restricted this season to facilitate traffic flow and ensure physical distancing. As such, there will be no indoor change areas or gear storage available.

School’s in session. All Snow School instruction must be booked in advance to ensure availability of instructors. Start your Camp or 7-Week program registration via the online form on our Snow School page, or book your Private Lessons and Discover packages by phone at 705-754-2298 or by email.

Please wait to be seated. Chalet foodservice will occupy the top level of the chalet and sun-deck this season. Seating will be assigned, and no outside food will be permitted in the chalet. Outdoor foodservice options will be available with our new take-out window, BBQs (weather-permitting), outdoor dining tent, and picnic tables.

Start earlier, ride and slide longer. On weekends and holidays, the first lift will start at 9:00am, 30 minutes earlier than past years. Other lifts will start at 15 minute intervals afterwards.

Bonus. With the earlier start on weekends and holidays, we’re now offering half-day lift tickets for mornings (9:00–12:30), perfect for enjoying the best conditions before getting on with the rest of your day.

Snow you know

While the snow crew have been busy creating great snowriding conditions, behind the scenes we’ve been hard at work pulling together a new daily Snow Report on the website to keep you informed on what to expect on your next trip to the hill.

Complete with daily weather details, run/lift status, snow conditions, accumulations, and live views of the hill, plus a brief look at the next day’s info, our new Snow Report is the next best thing to being here!

Great early and holiday skiing awaits

Once our snow season gets under way December 7, we will be open the December 7-8, 14-15 and 21-24 from 9:30am – 4:00pm, during which daily lift tickets, rentals and lessons will all be 50% off.

As of Boxing Day, we’ll be open daily from 9:30am – 4:30pm through to January 5. Please note weekend/holiday rates are in effect through the duration of the holiday period.

The Sunday Special will become available starting Sunday, January 5. Ski from 12:30 – 4:30pm for only $33, with $15 rentals.

Start Thinking Summer.

While summer seems a distant thought with winter going out like a lion, the time to prepare is now, and the perfect activity for young riders is our Kids’ MTB Skills Camps this July. Our Beginner and Intermediate/Advanced camps are back, joined by a new 5-day Pedal & Paddle Camp. For more info, keep tabs on our Summer Camps page…


Your cure for the shoulder season. On  March 30th, for one day only, Sir Sam’s is turning into your fat bike playground. Find out more…



If you purchase a lift ticket at Sir Sam’s and after three runs you are not satisfied with our snow surface conditions, we’ll give you a complimentary lift ticket to come another time in the same season.

For more information, ask at the ticket window at time of purchase.
