Ski society hosts AGM on Monday

The Phoenix Ski Hill is looking forward to another season - an AGM on Monday night and it's all downhill from there.

Phoenix Mountain Alpine Ski Society (PMASS) encourages pass holders and Boundary residents to attend its annual general meeting on Monday, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m., in Room 8 (downstairs) of Selkirk College in Grand Forks.

Season pass and membership applications will be available at the meeting. Everyone is welcome.

Phoenix Ski Hill is a community owned and run facility, which is strengthened and improved by member participation. If you believe our quality of life in the Boundary is enhanced by having a local ski hill, the ski society board of directors invites you to learn what we are doing to ensure a strong future for continued operation.

In September, the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch approved PMASS’s Community Gaming Grant application for the amount of $41,700. Phoenix Mountain Alpine Ski Society will continue to apply annually for gaming funds in addition to the funds we receive from local government and business sponsors for mountain operations.

Phoenix Mountain sends out a big thank you to last season’s supporters, including all the volunteers who dedicated their valuable time to our mountain operations. Operation Snowflake raised over $13,000 with contributions from 260 snowflakes purchased by 170 individuals and businesses. Financial support also came from the Boundary Park Shopping Centre, City of Greenwood, Community Futures Boundary, Grand Forks Credit Union, Grand Forks Gazette, Mountain FM, RDKB Areas C, D and E, Roxul Employees Association and Roxul Industries.
