This Milton Ski Hill is Officially Open
It's finally that time of year again.
Ski and snowboard hills are starting to open.
And as of today, Dec. 22, Glen Eden, located in Milton, is officially open for the season.
The Ridge Chair, Updraft Chair, Caterpillar Carpet and Little Dipper Carpet all opened today at 8:30 a.m. In total these chairs service about ten runs, including some terrain park features.
"Our snowmaking team has been working around the clock to get the hill ready," Gene Matthews, Director, Parks and Recreation, said in a recent press release.
"We are excited to start the 2018/19 season and we look forward to seeing visitors on the hills learning to ski or snowboard, out enjoying some runs with family and friends or throwing it down in the terrain park."
For a limited time, Glen Eden will be offering a promotional lift ticket price of $30 to accommodate for the limited terrain. Once the remainder of the lifts and runs are open, potentially as early as Boxing Day, lift tickets will return to regular rates.
Glen Eden is inviting all snow buffs to ring in the New Year on the hills with the New Year's Eve Ski & Dine package. This package includes one lift ticket and dinner - lasagna (vegetarian option available) with salad, dessert and soft drinks, which will be served in the West Lodge at 6 p.m. There will also be a fireplace and s’mores kits provided after dinner.
Despite this being a New Year's event, Glen Eden will close at its regular time. Reservations for this event are required by Dec. 28, 2018.
Glen Eden is located on Kelso Road, near Tremaine Road and Highway 401, and is a 20 minute drive from Mississauga, Burlington and Hamilton. The park, which is operated by Conservation Halton, is open seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Glen Eden will be closed on Dec. 25 and reopening on Boxing Day.
