Manning Park gears up for winter

Resort purchases two new snowcats to groom the ski areas

Manning Park Resort has purchased two new snowcats this year in preparation for the upcoming ski season.

Manning Park Resort is gearing up for a busy ski season.

The resort has purchased two new snowcats this year, bringing the total fleet size to four – the most the resort has ever had.

“With the new ownership and the team now in place, the resort is making great strides towards bringing the level of service and facilities back to where it was in the hay days of the 1990s as one of the best family resorts in B.C.,” said general manager Mike Barker, who was previously the ski area manager at Manning Park for 22 years. “We have made a major financial commitment to provide excellent and consistent grooming this winter at both the downhill and cross-country ski areas.”

A lot of work is also being done at the ski hill itself. Building and lift maintenance is improving the image and functionality of the alpine area, while downhill runs and cross-country trails are being brushed to ensure the resort can open with a minimal amount of snow. A revamped day lodge has also been launched to fuel visitors after a full day of skiing or boarding.

Cooler temperatures and fairly consistent weather reward those who visit Manning Park with run after run of untracked and unforgettable snow. In addition there are over 30 kilometres of groomed Nordic trails and extensive off-piste nordic and snowshoe trails to take the adventurous on outings ranging from half an hour to multi-day trips. Not only that, for those who like to travel and stay in their RVs, the downhill area has powered RV sites that provide fantastic ski-in/ski-out camping.
