It's a bright and crisp day out here at the Brim, a beautiful start to a new year! Why not join us today to take in some fresh air and get some down time?

The temperatures hiccuped yesterday onto the plus side of zero degrees Celsius forcing us to shut down snowmaking during the day. While most of you were returning home from New Year's Eve parties our dedicated snowmaking staff was on the hill firing the system back up to continue our efforts to get more terrain open. We are pushing hard to have the BOWL open tomorrow (Wednesday Jan 2) and follow soon with Ben's Bump. This will of course depend on all of the factors from temperature to wind direction that we deal with but things are looking promising -check our snow line (905 983-7669) or website www.brimacombe.ca each morning for the most up to date information. Snow production is still running strong in the VAULT terrain park and we will build and open it as soon as possible.
Some snowmaking equipment has been moved west with the plan being to get the upper chute from Flyer into Promenade covered and then down into the bottom half of Clubhouse run. Snow is also being made on the top half of Clubhouse run so that we can get the West chair, West Chalet and some terrain over there open as soon as we can. Our sights are set on opening all of the terrain needed to run our Brimacombe Snow School lesson programs, Pee Wee Camp Camp and Brimacombe Racing Club activities....plus the Vault terrain park of course, while providing terrain options for our many members and guests. The weather and pond expansion have been key to our success in getting terrain open as fast as we have since the decent snowmaking weather arrived just a few days before Christmas.



If you are 8 years of age or younger (or you are a parent that has kids that age) stop by any ticket office or our Main Office in the East Chalet and pick up your PACE PENGUIN safety package for FREE!

Brimacombe is pleased to be taking part in a pilot safety initiative called PACE PENGUIN.
The objective of this program is to help reduce the risk of injury to young children in downhill sports by educating children, parents and fellow skiers/snowboarders.

This program is designed to not only address several of the known risk factors for children, but contribute to an overall positive experience for families. Early research indicates the PACE program has outstanding positive influence on parents’ resort selection. By helping children to have a safe and fun experience, we hope that today’s "little penguins" will grow into safe, dedicated life-long skiers and snowboarders, who will in turn, introduce their children to downhill sports.
