Around 100 people hit the Clearwater slopes for Winter Fest

The Clearwater Ski Club joined in with the Winterfest Fun on Jan. 18, reducing their lift tickets to $15 (usually $25) and rentals for just $5.

“We’re probably going to hit around 100 people today. What’s great is that when we do these types of five-dollar rentals we see a lot of people who haven’t been skiing for a while and they go, ‘you know what, lets pop down and go see it,’” said Shelley Sim, vice president, who said the reduction in price was in support of the community.

The concession was also open, allowing customers to grab burgers and other goods, along with a free hot chocolate. Sim said the burgers are worth the trip for any non-skiers. The club also had some prize draws for its visitors.

“Anytime the ski hill is open and the community is here it’s always a good day,” said Sim. “It’s really something. It’s just terrific.”

Sim also added that the club was really grateful the temperature warmed up.

The hill has been open since Christmas.
