Mont Glen will reopen this year after a former owner Peter White purchased the mountain. The chalet has been entirely renovated, and there will be skiing. They are still accessing if the existing ski lift will be operational or if they will install a Poma handle tow or something to get skiers up for this year.

Snowmaking will be available in the following season of 2023.

The only thing is that both double chairs need replacement unless the previous owners had kept up the maintenance since closing. It is great that the chalet is renovated, and the property has been well maintained, and that shouldn't be a major expense. I would suspect that some trail work would need to be done. As I understand, transfer of the property is to be as of October 31st. It would be good for Knowlton that Glen reopens. I'm so going to be there.

Well it's a done deal! I received confirmation that the Glen Mountain file has been completed. All the conditions have been met, and the signing of the transfer of the deed is scheduled for October 31st, 2022. This will be great for the Town of Brome Lake (Knowlton) to potentially boost the economy of the town. Glen Mountain has been closed since 2004 with a brief opening in March of 2008 with the hopes of reopening for the winter of 2022-23 in a possible limited capacity for this winter. More to follow............

If you like backcountry skiing, you will never forget your first backcountry experience. Hopefully next year, you will be able to ski Mont Elgin in the back country. Be prepared to be exposed to the elements. You need to be well prepared. You are going to be in the woods for quite some time, so you should plan on having everything you need with you. Mont Elgin is a beautiful mountain, so it is well worth the hours of planning.  And then, you need to know how to get there. This is not a ski trip that you will be able to drive to. You will have to work out a way to get there that is going to be the best for you. If you can find a local mountain guide who knows the trails, you will have a much better trip.

Very disappointing news concerning Glen Mountain broke today. Peter White will not be purchasing the mountain, and reopening it. Glen has been sold to another private owner who at this time is unknown. The intent is not known of what will become of the property if it will remain private property or not. Here's a link to the statement made by Mr. White today.
