As summer starts to come to an end, the team at Hudson Bay Mountain Resort (HBMR) is looking forward to winter.
Their downtown office has reopened and skiers and boarders can pick up their season passes now.
They are encouraging people to come in early because of COVID-19 precautions.
“We have limited capacity in the downtown office so we are asking people to come in sooner rather than later to get their passes printed so we don’t have a huge rush in the fall or up on the mountain when we open,” said HBMR Inside Operations Manager Lex Rei-Jones.
The Grizzly Growler sale has been extended until the end of September and returning pass holders can still get a discount until Sept 15.
She added so far sales are slightly slower than previous years.
“We are a little behind, but that was to be expected because of how the spring was, a lot of people weren’t working and there is uncertainty about the upcoming year,” she said. “That is why we extended the returning pass holder discount.”
Last season was cut short because of the pandemic so HBMR is allowing users an extension to use up their Flex Card Days or credits can be used towards a 2020-2021 pass or Flex Card.
Despite the uncertainty with the ongoing pandemic, Rei-Jones said they are planning for a great season.
“We are feeling confident about the year, going ahead with hiring and planning and summer maintenance is in full swing,” she said.
They will be looking at hiring more locals and Canadians rather than people from overseas.
More information about passes can be found by calling or emailing their office.
