White Hills Resort
When does White Hills Resort typically open?
Our opening date is weather and conditions dependent; however, we target for the earliest possible date after Boxing Day.
When does White Hills Resort typically close?
Our closing date is weather and conditions dependent; but, we typically target the first weekend in April.
What days of the week are White Hills Resort open?
For the 2023 Snow Season, we are aiming to be open Wednesday through Sunday. If we have school and group bookings this year, we will open as many days a week as necessary to accommodate demand. Please check the web site, or call the resort, for open days each week. Cancellation of groups due to weather or other conditions may cause closures.
Why aren’t you open every day of the season?
White Hills Resort is operated as a not-for-profit business. To ensure financial survival, we operate on days when we anticipate operating expenses are covered. All profits are re-invested into the facility.
Why isn’t snowmaking started earlier?
Snowmaking efficiency depends on a combination of air temperature and humidity. The colder and drier it is, the more effective and efficient snowmaking is with a better quality of snow. Typically, it should be -5c or colder to allow snowmaking; but if the humidity is too high, it is not effective. Our snowmaking operation is as aggressive as Mother Nature allows.
Do you groom all the runs?
No. A significant segment of our clients look for, and enjoy, the experience found on ungroomed terrain. We feel it is one of the things that make White Hill Resort such a fun place to spend a day. We groom about 50% – 60% of the skiable terrain regularly.
Does White Hills Resort have night skiing?
We will, unfortunately, not be offering night skiing this season.
What does it cost to ski/board at White Hills Resort?

Can I rent skis/snowboard equipment at White Hills Resort?
Yes. Our rental shop has a wide variety of modern skis, including high-end skis, as well as snowboards, boots, poles, helmets, cross country skis and snowshoes for rent at reasonable rates. If you plan to rent, we advise coming early, as we do run out of some sizes of equipment on busy days throughout the season. Please check the rates under Lift Tickets & Rentals.

Can I bring my own food/beverages in the lodge?
Due to Covid-19 Regulations this season, we will have significantly reduced indoor capacity. Our main Day Lodge will be reserved for customers purchasing food & beverages from our Cafeteria and Bar. We have created an indoor space, above the Rental Shop, an outdoor space with fire pits and socially distanced picnic tables for warm-up and nutrition breaks.
Please note that, due to government legislation, alcoholic beverages not purchased in our lounge are not permitted on the premises/resort.
