Those looking forward to winter and the outdoor opportunities that come with it will be happy to hear that the ski and snowboard season is already underway.

A dumping of snow, although not much, and colder temperatures were enough for some local ski hills to start getting the slopes ready.

The Horseshoe Valley resort opened for skiing on Dec. 1, with limited runs available.

Their website lists two ‘easy’ runs and one ‘difficult’ run open for day use.

They are reporting conditions as “mild, machine groomed granular.”

The resort will not be open during the week but plans to open again this weekend.

Mount St. Louis Moonstone opened its hills on Dec. 2 and has started major snow-making operations.

The resort is reporting a base of between 25 and 40 cm. As of Dec. 1, they had 12 slopes open for skiing.

Conditions are reported as “‘machine-groomed powder.”‘

Blue Mountain Resort has also been working hard to make snow for their slopes.

They are planning on having an opening day today (Dec. 7).
