Shames Mountain ski area is currently open for its 19th winter season, and continues to offer guests an unmatched mountain experience, with excellent snow conditions and a variety of terrain. With a strong regional market and an outstanding reputation within the ski and snowboard community, Shames Mountain is an excellent opportunity to acquire an entire ski facility at a price that will allow a new owner to expand and improve the existing facilities.
Currently the ski area boundaries encompass approximately 144 acres of trails, accessible by the lift system of a double chair, a T-bar and a Handle Tow. Shames Mountain however, has an incredible opportunity to expand. It is only using a small percentage of its 8,730 acres of licensed land tenure. Expansion could include accessible backcountry terrain that is currently outside of the managed ski area boundaries. In fact, Shames Mountain is well known for the quality and accessibility of its backcountry terrain, which has been noted in several ski and snowboard publications. Ski Canada Magazine has reported Shames Mountain as one of Canada’s best-kept secrets and top five places to ski out-of-bounds, while TransWorld Snowboarding Magazine claims “Shames’ backcountry overflows with opportunity”. Expansion into these areas would increase the number of trails and skiable area of the mountain, and would help to develop Shames Mountain into a more significant destination ski resort.
