Mt. Timothy Ski Area is now open.
General manager Adam Piccolo says the staff has been busily grooming trails to do what they can to get the hills ready, and then a recent snowfall pulled it all together.
There are 10 runs open as of Dec. 22, with early-season ski conditions, he explains.
Regular hours when the chairlift will be operating are from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily.
The open runs are Ricochet, Big Dipper, Slow Motion, Big Easy, Cariboo, Chilcotin, Wrangler, Paradise and Split Decision.
