History

Cool since 1967

1967 was a cool time so it is apt that Stony Mountain Ski Area was founded in that era. Gary, Heather & Camryn (since 2000) Dewar purchased Stony Mountain in 1988. We were inspired after the Calgary Olympics!

29 years later there have been many changes to the sport of snowboarding and skiing.

Stony Mountain started 50 years ago when John McFarlane, Ted Bancroft, Bob Stewart and Charles Williams had a vision to bring skiing to the prairies close to Winnipeg. These pioneers had the foresight and wherewithal to design a ski area on the east escarpment of Stony Mountain. They designed and made their own lift system – 2 rope tows and also installed lights to enable night skiing. In 1972 they installed snow-making, which was a rarity at most ski areas back in that day. Stony Mountain is the 2nd longest operating ski area in Manitoba! In 1966 they moved in a building that became the Day Lodge for the ski area. They then opened Stony to the public for skiing. Alpine sports have changed dramatically in 50 years but the need for recreation and activities for families and youth is even more important in 2018.  While Stony is known as “Manitoba’s Snowboarding Capital”, we still have skiing for those who like TWO boards.
