Snow Valley Ski Club plans to replace its existing snow making waterline with a new upgraded line. The facility’s existing waterline, which was installed in 1984, has surpassed its life expectancy by 10 years and is now due for replacement. Pipe technology has advanced significantly since the 1980s and the new modern pipe that will be laid has a life expectancy of 100 years.
This snow making waterline replacement project was included in Snow Valley’s 10-Year Master Plan, which was approved by the City of Edmonton in 2013. Snow making is critical and essential to the operation of the Club and through this project, Snow Valley looks forward to ensuring effective and reliable snow making so that it may continue to operate a first-class ski facility for the citizens of Edmonton for many years to come.
This project will be completed in three phases over the next three years with each phase taking place in the fall/winter and lasting approximately two weeks. The final pipe-laying phase will occur in the fall of 2017 with final vegetation restoration taking place in May, 2018. This is a maintenance project and will not result in a change nor an intensification of usage of Snow Valley. Project work will occur during the daytime on weekdays and will comply with City of Edmonton noise bylaws. As the waterline will be completely underground, there will be no effect whatsoever on the visible landscape.
A public open house will be held upstairs in the Lodge at Snow Valley on Monday, October 5, 2015 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm to share information and details regarding this and other future Snow Valley projects. You are invited to attend.
Should you have any questions or require further information regarding this project, please contact Paul Robinson, Assistant General Manager of Snow Valley Ski Club at 780-809-2364 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

More fun and more funds raised. That was the call of the day on May 29th at Jagare Ridge Golf Course. We raised just over $10, 000 for Snow Valley’s Community Initiative Program on a nice Friday afternoon. The real encouragement came from golfers who appreciated:
- + The 3:30 pm start
- + 9 Hole Fun Golf Format
- + Short live auction with a super steak dinner
- + done by 8:00 pm!
Thanks to Doug Airey and Western Buick GMC, our title sponsor, and all our very generous Corporate, Hole and Prize Sponsors, volunteers and the very nice (and forgiving) people at Jagare Ridge Golf Course.
We hope to see you next year!
