Paul Posted September 18, 2019 Share Posted September 18, 2019 Here is a story I found on the CBC webpage in regards to ski areas in the Northern Ontario region. Kamiskotia Ski Area, located in Timmins, Ontario is seeking help for their remaining debts, the odd thing is the request for city funding is to repay some debts associated to the city of Timmins. Dufour Mountain who also is operated independently, has had requested assistance from the town of Elliot Lake for emergency expenses in the past. The two areas in Sudbury, Adanac, and Lively are supported by the city, and are the only ones in the North who are supported by their community with taxpayer money. The discussion in this article is: Should local ski areas be considered a business or a public service? Very good question! Are they? Here is the link to that story, and is an interesting read. An interesting point: there had been 4 areas in the Sudbury area and now there are 2. Adanac and Lively are the two remaining hills while Capreol Mountain closed 4 years ago, and another nearby area, Onaping closed in 2012. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/sudbury/ski-hills-northeastern-ontario-financial-future-1.5282145 Ocean 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
