Snowcat fund

Ways to make a donation to the snowcat fund:

1) Sign yourself up as a vendor from the comfort of your home to make a monthly installment of $5 a month or more to help pay off the cost of purchasing a quality machine;

2) Make a donation and/or monthly payment via your online bill payment system. This option is available to all Credit Union Members, BMO and HSBC customers. Other banks can do this, but they charge MMC a fee.

Want to see what it takes to run a ski hill?

On February 3rd we launched a pilot project to involve our members and keen community folk to help hill staff. On busy days particularly, staff run into unforeseen pressures and can run themselves down. In such moments, even a bit of outside support can be greatly appreciated.

Inside the lodge as you come in, there is a board near the stairs which outlines where your help might be needed. If you can help, go to the ticket office to sign a waiver and receive further details. At the end you will also log your volunteer hours.
