(North Bay – July 28, 2020)  Laurentian Ski Hill Snowboarding Club (LSHSC) is continuing construction on numerous areas of the ski hill this summer and fall to reduce snowmaking costs and improve skiable areas. 

The public is reminded to stay off the ski hill. The heavy equipment and construction on the hill create potentially hazardous conditions.  The ski hill is closed to the public during the offseason but some persons still choose to enter the restricted area which is located in the North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority’s Laurentian Escarpment Conservation Area (LECA).

“We strongly encourage hikers, walkers, runners and cyclists to use the Laurentian Escarpment Trails that are maintained by the North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority (NBMCA) and are free to use,” said Cam Graham, LSHSC General Manager.

The trailhead for the LECA trails is located at 15 Janey Ave., with plenty of parking.   It is easily located by the tower at NBMCA’s interpretive centre which houses the ski hill lodge on the main level. Dog walkers are reminded to keep their pets on a leash while on NBMCA trails.  

Laurentian Ski Hill Snowboarding Club is continuing to expand the newest run with heavy equipment, as well as the Terrain Park and Slingshot. Completing these projects this summer will offer more skiable areas on the hill and also greatly assist LSHSC in snowmaking costs.
