The 2015/16 ski season at Omineca Ski Club has already begun

The Spud Mountain trail system, located directly above the Omineca Ski Club, allows skiers to enjoy views at about 1500 feet above a cloud blanketed valley. With an elevation of approximately 3000 feet above Burns Lake, the top of the mountain is only eight kilometres from the club’s lodge. According to the ski club, with the addition of the Spud Mountain trail system the ski club rivals the best cross country areas in B.C., including Vernon’s Silver Star Mountain, which sees thousands of skiers each year.

The 2015/16 ski season at Omineca Ski Club has already begun. According to the club, lots of grooming was done last week, and although skiers are still advised to avoid the more advanced trails, almost all of the trails are rolled and ready to ski. It’s time to get outside and make the most of winter. And mark it on your calendar World Snow Day is Jan. 17, 2016.
