Another sunny day on the slopes of Brimacombe is behind us, night skiing is now underway. Our 7 Week Lesson Program and the Pee Wee Ski Camp kicked off today and it was great to see so many little faces enjoying the snow. If your lesson or camp session starts tomorrow, rest up it's going to be a fun day.

Men's and Ladies Day tickets went on sale today. Don't miss your chance to spend an "exclusive" day on the slopes with your buddies or girlfriends. Tickets are $90 each or $80 each for a group of four (when bought together). More details can be found under the "Latest News" heading of our website All proceeds of Men's Day will go to the Canadian Association of Disabled Skiers Durham, Ladies Day proceeds will go to the Bethesda House. Help support our local groups by taking part in a great day at Brimacombe!

Haven't hit the slopes yet? The conditions are top notch, just ask someone who has been out! This season has been a little different than the two years we are following. The last two seasons brought us TONS of natural snow which allowed us to open all of our terrain in a short span of time, while this year we have seen very little..and I mean VERY little natural snow. The lack of natural snow however has had no effect on the CONDITIONS of our open terrain. We are experiencing one of the longest spans of deep cold temperatures that I can remember in a very long time. This span of minus double digits has been ideal for snow production which has allowed us to open 15 runs plus our two terrain parks on virtually 100% man made snow. For the unaware, man made snow is NOT a lessor quality snow, in fact it just might be a superior product to the "real thing"...but that's just my opinion.

Here's what I saw at the Brim today...

Lost? Need some information? Just ask our Snow Hosts Sarah...

or Mitch!

Our Main Park was a hot spot today....the level of talent always amazes me!

Go Matt!

If tomorrow is anything like today, load your gear in the car, set your alarm to get up early, and join us for another fantastic day on the slopes of Brimacombe!
