Last Day for Ski Hill!

Last day of ski hill operations – Thank you for a great season!

Please note that after the ski hill closes, we close our gate and the ski hill becomes a work zone. We ask that you explore the other beautiful areas in the park if you want to take a back-country tour.

Although Manning Park Ski hill is closed, our Nordic Ski Centre will remain open, as we continue to have great conditions for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing on our higher elevation trails. Our accommodation, restaurant and other amenities will also continue to remain open.
