Murray Ridge is gearing up for another exciting season and opening day is just around the corner.

The “best kept secret of the north” is traditionally scheduled to open on the Dec. 19, the first Saturday of Christmas school holidays.

Murray Ridge manager, Jana Gainor is excited about the upcoming season but of course, is hoping for more snow. “We still need another few inches to groom and open safely,” Gainor says.

Gainor also says that the ski resort is still short a few patrollers during the week. “If anyone is interested in being a ski patrol, just give us a call,” she said.

Along with adult ski patrol programs, there are also junior ski patrol training programs available for those younger who might be interested.

All in all, Murray Ridge is ready and there are lots of events and plans for the upcoming season according to Gainor.

“The lodges are totally ready and even decorated for Christmas. Now we just need some snow.”
