Local skiers and snowboards will rejoice as Boler Mountain is set to open earlier than anticipated.
The London ski hill was planning to start the chair lifts on Saturday, but because of the favourable conditions, they’re opening the runs Friday at 4 p.m.
“Last year at this time, we hadn’t even been able to think about firing up the snow making system, the temperatures were just too warm and we had a green Christmas, we didn’t open until January 6th,” said Boler Mountain manager Greg Strauss.
“It’s great to be off to a great start this year, we expect to be open for the whole two weeks of the Christmas break.”
So far, they’ve built up a two to three foot base of natural and man-made snow.
