Big Ben Open for 2018-2019 Season
As the increasing snowfall excites
skiers and snowboarders, Big
Ben ski hill will have a new face in
charge of programming this year. Gary
Woods has been a ski and snowboard
instructor for over 35 years at Big Ben
Leader Sports, headed by Jack
Ruest, has been operating the hill for
many years, but will not be returning
this year. This transpired when the
Cornwall City Council decided to cut
funding for the management fee for
the hill earlier this year. Although the
decision was reversed, a new operator
needed to be found.
Big Ben opens annually around mid December,
as long as the weather cooperates.
In partnership with the City
of Cornwall, Big Ben has offered skiing
for over 40 years. The hill will be open
Wednesday to Friday from 5:30 p.m. to
9 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
