With Table Mountain opening their doors this weekend, Saskatchewan skiers can now hit the slopes.
Snow making operations already began awhile but with the milder temperatures, they have some work to do. General Manager of Table Mountain, Lawrence Blouin, said they're still in the process of getting parts of the park ready for the year, "We've made a lot of snow already but now it's too warm, so we're opening with only 50% or 60% of the hill."
Skiing continues to be a popular sport in Saskatchewan, despite being a primarily flat province.
The sport also boasts many benefits, including strengthening muscles, improving balance and coordination, and improves flexibility. Skiing is also a fun, outdoor activity, which can improve ones mood, especially during those long winter months.
Blouin noted that Table Mountain sees around 65,000 visits each year.
