Boler Mountain, run by the London Ski Club in Ontario, seeks to expand its ski hill. The club is currently in fundraising mode, attempting to raise $6 million for their Capital Campaign. The club reorganized a few years ago into an incorporated charitable organization to allow them to raise the funds necessary to carry out their capital improvement program.
The funds are intended to expand the West Hill upward, doubling the height of the current terrain. The club's ten-year partnership with Blue-Con has been inching up the height of the West Hill by bringing in 1.3 million cubic meters of soil.
The enlarged West Hill will be home to a new quad chair, snowmaking, and lighting for night skiing. It will also add five new runs.
The added terrain will permit the ski club to expand all of their programs. It also will allow the club to double the capacity for skiers.
The 60-year-old London Ski Club has been expanding its services almost yearly during the past decade. A fixed-grip quad replaced the T-bars. A magic carpet was installed in the beginner area and another between the new tubing hill and the half-pipe.
The club has 1,400 winter season passholders, and Boler Mountain sees 100,000 skier visits each year. Lift tickets are sold by the two-, four-, or six-hour block.
