What's happening at the Brim...

We have had a GREAT first two weeks of the season out here at the Brim! Consistent cold weather and ample water reserve has allowed us to rapidly open terrain for your skiing and snowboarding enjoyment! If you were not out on the slopes the BOWL opened Wednesday and BEN’S BUMP opened today!


We will be opening CLUBHOUSE RUN and PROMENDADE tomorrow (Jan 5, 2013) serviced by the West Chair, West Chalet and Parking lot #1. Access from the east will be across the top section of Flyer through the chute to Promenade.

Construction of our VAULT terrain park will begin tomorrow with the plan being to open it Tuesday  January 8, 2013 at 4:30pm.

Snowmaking weather will be minimal this week, however we plan to come back onto already open terrain when possible to build up thin areas etc. We will be continuing to make snow on the FLYER when we can, as well as getting equipment onto Park Ave when possible (until now it has been open on 100% natural snow only).


Tomorrow will be the first day that we will run a race course on the west side of the Standard Run (new course location) and Ben’s Bump together. It will be a good test run to see how everything flows before the 8 week lesson programs fire up next week.  Access to the BOWL Chair from the Main Street quad will be via the TOP of LADIES DOWNHILL.



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.
