Winter temperatures have arrived in southern Ontario, which has allowed Glen Eden’s snowmaking team to make snow and get the hill set to open this Friday, January 8 from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Glen Eden is anticipating having five lifts and eight runs open for the weekend. There will be a Terrain Park setup as well for the snowboarders. More accurate details will be posted later this week on the Glen Eden website, as to which runs and lifts will be open, as well as the Terrain Park location, number of features and other details.

The Tube Park will not be open this weekend at Glen Eden, more information will be posted on the Glen Eden website over the coming days and weeks.

“We’re still making snow for a good portion of this week and the goal is to have as many runs and terrain open as we can for our opening this weekend,” said Sean Durkin, Manager Glen Eden. “Thank you to all our customers for their patience and understanding, we are excited to get the season started and look forward to seeing you!”

Glen Eden is home to one of the largest Snow Schools in Ontario, with a wide selection of programs from classic Core Programs to a new spin on specialty programs that are now part of the Academy Programs.

The Terrain Park is where a lot of the action happens at Glen Eden. The “Big” Parks, Nighthawk and Falcon during peak season have upwards of 40 of the most progressive features dedicated to these two runs. Glen Eden has lots of options for keeping things fresh while pushing your limits and developing your skills.

Glen Eden’s Discover Skiing and Snowboarding is a lesson program for first timers and beginners. New last season, if you purchase a Beginner Centre lift ticket and rent equipment, your lesson is included. Discover programs will be available starting this weekend.
