Mt. Baldy facing uncertainty

Mt. Baldy ski hill is reported to be facing cash flow problems and is late get season passes on sale.

Mt. Baldy ski hill is facing uncertainty about the coming season. Season passes are not yet for sale, though management told CBC Radio last week they are asking those interested in purchasing them when they are available to register with the office.

Brush control and painting of the lodge will have to wait for next summer, but lots of local skiers and boarders are anxiously awaiting developments.

According to Castanet, an online Okanagan-based news source (castanet.net), mountain manager Matt Koenig says it is related to a financial matter. But he is hopeful the li_ s will run this winter.

According to Castanet the ski area opened in 1968, has two chairlifts and a magic carpet. There is also a lodge, a rental shop and around 100 cabins.

Online reports indicate that management is hopeful they will be able to sort their cash flow problems in time to open in December.
