Bald Mt Ski Hill

The annual Valentines fundraiser our ski hill was a huge success! We are humbled by the support from the business community for donations, volunteers for hours of whistling while they work and thrilled by our silent auction bidders; $8900 brought in and after paying some bills there will be $4,000 left to help with summer projects! The Renner’s are always coming up with fun for the kids; this year was snow sled bowling.

Great snow blessed us over the 3 day weekend and Monday a special visit from an ‘ol friend -John Elsbury - on his set ski. We welcomed John & Nancy-Jo back to the Bald Mtn neighborhood with hugs & smiles. I’m guessing John’s set ski was a first for the Bald Mtn T Bar. After figuring out the darn attachment contraption John rode to the top with white knuckled ease.

The Ski Hill has plenty of new snow and is open Saturdays and Sundays! Come hit the family friendly slopes and enjoy our little gem of a Ski Hill while you still have time.

With all the great snow that has been coming down, the Ski Hill will remain open till Sunday, March 17th!

The ski club greatly appreciates the help we get from our Volunteers and local businesses - Maki Manufacturing helps keep our machines functional, CPTPA painted our racks built by Zone Timberline Metal Shop and Finke Logging. We are community all the way- THANK YOU for supporting local/affordable skiing & snowboarding!
