Mild weather shuts down Milton ski hills

The mild weather combined with rain has shut down the ski and skateboard hills at Glen Eden in Milton.

A message on the resort’s website said the closure will last several days with the hope that it will reopen on Jan. 5.

“The challenging weather we have seen at the beginning of the season has forced us to pivot our operations,” the bulletin from Glen Eden reads. “Our commitment is always on keeping our visitors and staff safe and right now, we do not have the proper weather conditions to ensure this focus. We’re aiming to re-open on January 5 — weather permitting.”

Just last week Glen Eden opened for the season and while many got the chance to make a few downhill runs just before Christmas, for the most part the green conditions have made it impossible for people to enjoy the slopes.

Temperatures for the area are expected to remain above freezing for the rest of the week but Glen Eden is optimistic that snow making efforts in the days ahead will be successful.

During optimal conditions, Glen Eden has 17 slopes, three terrain parks, and seven lifts and offers programs for those with various skill levels whether you’re an avid skier, snowboarder, or someone learning how to ride the slopes for the first time.

Glen Eden operates from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. each day when open.

Slope conditions and booking information can be found here.

Glen Eden is a public ski and snowboard hill operated by Conservation Halton.

It is located at 5234 Kelso Rd.
