Hudson Bay Mountain expanding hours

Hudson Bay Mountain will be open consistently five days per week, plus seven days per week over Christmas and March breaks.

In an effort to improve the on mountain experience for pass holders and guests, Hudson Bay Mountain will be expanding their operational calendar to be consistently open five days a week, Wednesday to Sunday and seven days a week over Christmas and March break.

That totals 111 days of skiing and boarding, a minimum 10 per cent increase over previous years.

With the increase in days and consistency, the mountain is looking to add value for pass holders and to attract more visitors from northern B.C. and beyond. It will be the only ski resort in northern B.C. with a five days-a-week operation.

With a strong La Nina predicted this winter, that could mean cold temperatures and lots of high quality powder. That’ is great news for snow enthusiasts and Hudson Bay Mountain.

Season passes are on sale now at discounted rates until Sept. 30. Opening Day is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 26, snow permitting.
