OLIVER - It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas for a South Okanagan ski resort.

Stephanie O’Brien of Baldy Mountain Resort reports heavy snow fell at the resort last night, Nov. 24, creating a base of 83 centimetres at the summit and 25 cm at the base.

“After one heck of a dump, the resort now has enough snow to open next week,” she says.

The First Chair Festival takes place at Baldy Mountain Dec. 1 to 4, with free snowshoe rentals, fat bike rentals, along with hot chocolate and cider.

The resort is located around 35 kilometres east of Oliver.
