A handful of new directors signed on to the board for Murray Ridge Ski Hill at the annual general meeting last week.

The AGM saw about 15 people come out, including the past directors, voicing some concerns and putting forward new ideas for the hill.

Some of the concerns raised were proper line control in the lift line-up, signage to prevent skiers coming down the tow line, replacing bent T-bars, snowmobile safety and employee conduct.

The meeting also discussed the financial results of last season, which saw the hill  make a small net profit of about $20,000, which will go towards future maintenance and upgrades.

Some of the projects being looked at are the replacement of the top lift shack , bottom lift shack and rebuilding the groomer shed.

Ideas, input and expertise are welcomed by the board and Dan Goff, ski hill manager,  for the replacement of the small shack at the top of the lift, with the idea it could potentially be something skiers and boarders could use as well.

Five of the people attending the meeting as members decided to participate in the board of directors, with three of the five having no previous experience with the board.

Only one past board member stepped down. Treasurer Jason Barr stepped down from the board, but Anthony Boyd will now step into the treasurer role.

 

The rest of the executive stays the same, with Gord Goodwin as president, Manu Madhock as vice-president, and Jim Burck as secretary.
