Glen Eden to stay open for one more weekend March 24 to 26, 2017

Posted by on

Glen Eden will reopen for one last weekend of skiing and snowboarding for the 2016/17 season from Friday, March 24 until Sunday, March 26. A combination of some recent natural snow, the remaining manmade snow and some cooler seasonal temperatures mean the skiing and snowboarding season will continue for a few more days.

Glen Eden will be closed this week Monday through Thursday, reopening Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Lifts will be spinning from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Lift tickets will be $22 this weekend (rather than $38 for adults and $33 for teens), and all season passes are valid (Super Value, 5x7 and All Access). Glen Eden opened for the 2016-17 season on December 17, 2016.

“We would like to thank all the skiers, snowboarders and lesson participants who visited Glen Eden during the 2016/17 season,” said Gene Matthews, Director, Operations, Conservation Halton. “Glen Eden enjoyed a successful season this past year with visitation returning to typical levels. Our grooming and snowmaking team did a fantastic job with temperatures which were above seasonal, particularly in February.”

The Glen Eden season typically starts before Christmas and Boxing Day and is usually concluded by the end of March Break. Last season, Glen Eden didn’t open until January 8, 2016, the latest start to a season in ten years, and closed on March 12, 2016, the earliest closing in the same time frame. Recognizing the varying winter conditions Southern Ontario receives each year, Glen Eden depends on making its own snow and investments continuously in snowmaking infrastructure

Glen Eden is currently offering its Early Bird special for the 2017/18 season on Season Passes and for the first time ever all the Snow School programs. You can register now for the Snow School programs for next season, as opposed to waiting until September. The Early Bird features the best available pricing of the year on all Season Pass and Snow School programs. It closes on April 12, 2017.
