Wapiti will be open for nightskiing only as per usual hours this Tuesday Feb 7th. Lots of great fresh snow to ski on! Groomer is out on the mountain right now as well.

Sunday Feb 5th 2017 – LOTS of fresh snow!

More fun than shovelling the driveway, come on up to ski! Still snowing!

Operating Normal Scheduled Days

Wapiti is fully open! We are open Tuesday to Friday from 7pm to 9:30pm and Saturdays/Sundays from 10am to 4pm.

Opening Day Confirmed – Saturday January 14

Come on up this Saturday, January 14th for opening day.  The hill will be open from 10am to 4pm.  Skiing will be free for locals! We are calling this a “Soft” opening as we will be breaking in our lift upgrades under a full load.  Hope to see you all there.

Update on opening day: Soft opening – Jan 14th (tentative)

Just a quick update for the public on the status of Wapiti for this season.
Wapiti is doing its best with the snow conditions/accumulation that Elkford has been dealt thus far. We started grooming with a 28cm loose snow base at the bottom and a 38cm loose snow base at the top of the hill. This has left us with a skiable base from tower 7 down. The face/main RUN being the most skiable. The conditions will be classed as early season where any RUN that is open will have to be skied with caution.

With these conditions the goal for Wapiti is to try for an opening day on the 14th of January 2017. This day will be classed as a “soft” opening. This means that the hill will open to locals with the fee for skiing being waived for this day. The reason for this is to let the public see for themselves what the conditions are and also to do some testing with the new lift drive system.

Wapiti thanks everyone for their support and patience. We are trying to do our best with what Mother Nature has given. Let’s all cross our fingers for more snow!!

Thanks again and please watch the website for further info for this season.
