Shames Mountain's Snow Groomer Ready for Upcoming Season
My Mountain Co-op is thanking its community partners for helping to secure funds for its new grooming machine at Shames Mountain.
The new-to-them grooming machine was a much needed upgrade in order to ensure they could provide customers safe and well-kept slopes.
MMC put out a call in the spring to fundraise for the machine which had a price tag of $300,000.
Donations poured in at different amounts, with a notable donation of $50,000 from the Port of Prince Rupert's Community investment fund.
The District of Kitimat also chipped in $25,000 and plans to give another $25,000 through its 2018 budget - which has yet to be finalized.
The machine is now at Shames ahead of opening day on Saturday.
