Blackstrap Ski Hill, Canada

ski hotels

A man-made hill called Blackstrap Ski Hill was created by the Canadian Government for the 1971 Canada Winter Games. This mountain was built with soil and garbage from the city of Saskatoon.

Blackstrap Ski Hill has skiing and snowboarding capabilities and is located about half an hour from the city of Saskatoon. There are plans to re-designate this site as a Nordic center for cross-country skiing , hiking and mountain biking for the people in this prairie land of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

This old ski hill is located in the Blackstrap Provincial Park. In 2007, this park had a carpet lift to service the beginner’s ski lessons. There was a handle tow for the snowboarders and other skiers. A T-bar was also installed to assist the snowboard park users and the beginner and intermediate slopes.

In 2008-2009 seasons, this ski hill was temporarily closed. The Blackstrap Provincial Park remains open and cross country trails are groomed and ready, but the Alpine skiing facilities and the lifts in the park were shutdown in 2010.
