January 22 nd 2021
We are receiving a blast of cold weather right now, but when the sun comes up it starts warming things up and makes for a good day. No new snow to report but the groomers are out making some nice groomed runs.
Please remember we will be closed this Tues, Wed, Thurs.
Troll will be open Friday through Monday for the beginning of this ski season.
Thanks to everyone for adhering to all the covid protocols. We appreciate it and so do the people around you.
Please read the notes below about what to expect at Troll, about masks being required and where, and the lodge will be entirely on take out so you need to be able to change your gear and eat in your vehicle, or outside 🙂
We will expect your cooperation as we navigate through all these Covid-19 protocols, we want to remain open and be able to ski and snowboard throughout the winter, we are in this together and together we will get through this while slip sliding down the slopes.
We will have an outdoor window access to purchase tickets, (through the ski school building). We will have additional toilets outside. At this time the Lodge will be open for people to come in to place a food order and exit through a side door, personal bags will have to remain in everyone’s vehicles. We will operate the cafeteria on a take out style, and encourage people to eat outside at their vehicles or at the picnic tables we’ve provided. As more government restrictions are brought into place we’ll all have to adjust. Masks are now mandatory in all public places inside and IN LIFT LINE UPS, so don’t forget to bring one. We are striving to get people up the mountain and maintain Troll as a great place to reduce your stress levels, reconnect with nature while enjoying the social aspects of skiing and snowboarding, while naturally physically distancing.
In light of all the constraints and keeping Troll viable we have decided to operate a minimum of 4 days per week after the Christmas break. That means we will operate weekends, Fridays and Mondays. We of course will be open everyday throughout the Christmas holidays.
Season Passes are available at Rocky Peak Adventure Gear, (directly across from the Post Office). We have decided to keep prices the same as last year.
We were anticipating raising them to accommodate the rising cost of everything, however with reduced opening days we hope to manage.
***new for all our season pass holders, IQonboard. We at Troll are taking advantage of some leading edge technology, developed in the aviation industry for contact tracing. Each season pass holder will receive an IQtag (disc) the size of a toonie that is to be worn in conjunction with your pass. This disc will allow us to track them each time it enters the lodge or ski school, and ONLY these locations. These are the two areas of concern in particular for B.C. Health. No other action will be required, and the disc will only record time spent in those 2 locations.
Troll has decided to shoulder the majority of the cost for these IQtags (disks). We are hoping the pass holders can support us in this initiative by donating $10.00 – $40.00 for the use of the IQtag for the season.
Day pass purchases, and Ten Day Passes will sign in on the days they come to the hill.
Please look to our Facebook page for current updates.
