The VAULT is unlocked.

That's right we spun the dial and swung open the door to the VAULT terrain park for the 2012-2013 season.

It's super flowy with an urban feel the VAULT displays our "gems" with style. We will be adding more features Thursday night when you're asleep, and then again on Sunday Night and Monday of next week.

My camera seems to be against me tonight, but here are a few shots of what I saw in the VAULT...

Winter is upon us, tear free of your couch and join us for some time in the great outdoors.


Our 8 week lesson programs start up this week, if you or your children are enrolled please be sure to be here with enough time to get prepared and to the Brimacombe Snow School prior to the start time of the lesson.



Interested in joining the Canadian Ski Patrol (CSP)?
The On-Snow First (OSF) recruit/information event will be held Saturday January 19th – starting at 9:30 a.m in the Upper East Chalet.
For more information about CSP or OSF, visit the Kawartha Zone Ski Patrol site at http://www.kawartha.skipatrol.ca/  or speak with any member of the Brimacombe Patrol.



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.

A special THANK-YOU to the Brimacombe Volunteer Ski Patrol for their assistance in implementing this program.
