If you're looking for something to do, Bull Mountain Adventure park may be the right fit. 

Today, Dec. 22, Don Journeay is inviting people to venture up the hill and pick up some used items from Crystal Mountain's old rental shop.

The sale, like last week, is from noon to 4 p.m.  and it may be a good time to get a bite to eat because Pizzamoreh will be selling hot and ready pizza by the slice with all profits going to Bull Mountain.

Journeay, a carpenter, started subleasing the space from the leaseholder, Crystal Mountain Resort, with the approval of the province. His aim was simply to bring skiers and life back to a once loved corner of his community.

It’s a tall order. Initially, he thought it could be open for business by this December, with countless hours of work behind him he suspects that it will be late January at best — but, also possible, next season.

“People come up and say ‘wow you’ve done so much’ and it’s great to hear,” he said, adding that he often sees more work than progress.

“Then again, when you are on a project you don’t see how much progress you are making. You just see what you need to do.”

That said, it’s coming along nicely.

“We’re just moving ahead, slowly but surely,” Journey said.
