ATTENTION: PROVINCE WIDE LOCKDOWN
Our team is sad to share Premier Doug Ford’s announcement of a province wide lockdown starting at 12:01 am on December 26th for 14 days in northern Ontario to help stop the spread of COVID-19. This includes all indoor and outdoor recreation and sports facilities.
Please be sure to check our website and social media pages for updates on our predicted opening date.
We have been told by the Provincial government that due to a shutdown we will have to close for 2 weeks. They had previously told us that a lockdown would not effect ski hills. They have said “this is a shutdown which is different”. The major problem is people traveling to ski. The weather has not co-operated for us to open as of now. During the next 2 weeks we will be making as much snow as we can. . If you would like to talk to me please email me at GM@boogiemountain.com. We wish all of you a very Merry Christmas

Update November 4th – Great NEWS: We will offer a “seasonal rental” this year. More details and how to register for it will be posted by the weekend!
Update November 2nd –
We have been asked if we will open this season. The answer is yes. As of now there is no limits on the amount of people on the hill.
We do have to follow COVID rules. Everyone has to have a mask or face covering while entering the chalet and in the lift line. This is not a request it is the only way we can operate.
If at any point they limit the amount of people these are the steps we will take.
1-we will be members only.
2- we will open longer hours to make sure all our members get plenty of ski and snowboard time.
Memberships are on sale at a discount price until November 22nd. You can buy them online or on our website or come to the hill on the weekends between 10am -4pm.
Best thing is to email email@example.com to let us know you are coming.
We are looking forward to a really good ski year.
