Ski Martock

Ski Cape Smokey

Ski Cape Smokey is a bit of a hidden gem, and it’s currently run by volunteers after closing its doors as a business in 2006. It’s the highest ski hill in the province, at 305 meters (1,001 feet) in height, and only has a few trails open due to it being fully operated by volunteers.
