Glen Eden season to wrap up Sunday, March 17 with weekend promotion

Posted by on

MILTON – Glen Eden has announced that the final day of ski and snowboard operations for the 2018-2019 season will be Sunday, March 17, 2019. With warmer temperatures in the forecast, snow conditions are expected to deteriorate quickly. Lifts will run from 8:30 am to 9:30 pm each day until then. 

Also, to help make the most of the remainder of the ski and snowboard season, Glen Eden will be accepting all season passes and offering $25 lift tickets from now until close on Sunday. 

“We would like to thank everyone who came to Glen Eden during the 2018-2019 season. From the little ones learning to ski and snowboard to the big kids in terrain park to the parents and grandparents chasing after them, thank you for making Glen Eden your hometown hill,” said Gene Matthews, Director, Parks and Recreation, Conservation Halton.                                                           

Considering the winter conditions that southern Ontario receives each year, Glen Eden is dependent on being able to make their own snow, which requires continuous investment in snowmaking infrastructure. 

“We pride ourselves on being able to bring winter to our community, even when the weather is challenging, and we are proud of the outstanding job that our team has done,” Matthews said. 

Glen Eden usually opens around Christmas and closes near the end of March Break. This year, the Glen Eden season started on Saturday, December 22, 2018. 

Glen Eden is currently offering Early Bird pricing on 2019-2020 season passes and lessons until Sunday, April 7. Early Bird is the best available pricing of the year. At this special rate, the 5 Day x 7 Night Pass pays for itself in four visits and the Weekday Pass pays for itself in just two visits.
