Ballingall. “After a couple of hard years in the tourism world, and having to close early multiple years in a row, we are very excited to give our pass holders, locals and residents of British Columbia, a chance to hit the slopes as soon as it’s safe to do so.”

The Plaza Chair, Lara’s Gondola, and the Ridge Rocket Express Chair will be open Nov. 17, servicing runs until 3:30 p.m.
