Devil’s Elbow Ski Area

The trees around Bethany Ontario are looking bare and snow has already been sighted.  The wind has a familiar bite and it’s time for many to start thinking about ski season!!!

Those in Bethany know all about one of the great winter attractions of the Kawarthas – Devil’s Elbow Ski Area. Tucked away in the rolling hills of Manvers Township, it is minutes away from Peterborough, Lindsay, Port Hope and Oshawa and just up the road from Bethany Village.

There is something for everyone at the Elbow, from novice to expert,

Ski Patrol

skiers and snowboarders alike. And this year, there are an additional 2 terrain areas to enjoy. Lineups aren’t an issue with 6 chairlifts and 8.5 km of trails winding through forests for the Nordic skiers.

Open to the public every day, except Christmas Day, 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., December – March.  This might make me unpopular with the non-skiers, but I really hope there’s more snow than last year!

Last weekend was the Annual Open House at Devil’s Elbow Ski Area.  It was a reunion of sorts, with great opportunities to take advantage of pre-season discounts to buy a season pass, register for lessons and racing programs – Alpine, snowboarding and junior racing- and meet the ski patrol.

And many enjoyed Parnell’s Ski Swap and Sale!  Skiis could get tuned up and it was great chance to meet up with old friends.  The concession stand was open and ready for business and the kids got some pre-ski season exercise running up and down the hills. It was a fun weekend with everyone preparing for the upcoming season!
