Presenting… The Bear Chair!
Last month, we put the vote to you to name the new quad chair from our top 4 choices, and you have answered!
Thank you to the nearly 1500 people who voted to give the New Quad Chair its name – Presenting…
The Bear Chair!
Congratulations to Pam Lamoureux, one of our long-time Manning locals, for being the first to submit the winning name! She has won a season pass and will be on the first chair ride up on our anticipated opening day of December 7th.
This fun and family-friendly name is a fitting one for the new chairlift, which allows you and your family to ride up 4 to a chair. It is now ready to go to take skiers and boarders up the mountain!
The Bear Chair also matches with the new brand for Manning Park Resort. We dropped a sneak peak last month of the new look and logo that we will be moving forward with this winter, along with a new website coming in time for the ski season.

November in Manning Park
There’s lots happening as we prepare for the winter season. While we are working on the new Alpine Guest Services building for the ski area, and the new premium cabins, you can still catch some beautiful autumn hiking weather, stargazing or a cozy fire at the Resort this November.
We hosted two great #ManningParkDarkSky Astronomy Weekends in October, and we’re still looking upwards for clear skies this fall, with our Dark Sky Discount! Sign up to our Dark Sky Mailing List to learn how you can save 25% on accommodation from now until December 5th.
The BC Parks trail report provides some information about the trail conditions in the park. Although the Manning Park larches have now dropped their golden needles, there are some beautiful hikes to go on! Be prepared to encounter snow on the higher elevation trails.
We are anticipating snow this month, with an expected opening date for the Nordic trails for November 30th-December 1st. Snowshoes will be available from the Front Desk when the snow flies.
The Ski Area opening weekend is expected for December 7-8th, so be sure to put it on the calendar to join us for the Grand Opening of the Bear Chair.
