Big Bam Ski Hill has acquired three portables that will be used at the facility. The portables will be used for improving the overall experiences of those visiting the hill.
One of the portables will be put on top and be used as a cafeteria and warm up shack that will over look the Peace. The plan for one of the others will be to replace the current first aid shack, to become a first aid room and a training facility for an adaptive ski program that the hill is developing.
The ski program will provide a recreation option for those that don’t have use of their lower extremities and will be the only one of its kind from Edmonton to Prince George according to Big Bam director Jody Mather.
The status of the third portable is unknown. Mather said it may be refurbished and sold.
As a prelude to the upcoming ski season Big Bam will be having a “Farewell to Summer” music festival fundraiser which will feature mostly local acts. The festival will be held over the September long weekend.
Musical acts are still to be announced. Tickets are $20. Those 12 and under get in for free. Camping will be available at Big Bam and other sites for $20 per night.
Tickets are on sale and can be purchased on the Big Bam Facebook page or by contacting Jody Mather at 250-263-4260.
