My Mountain Co-op
It is with great pleasure that My Recreational Mountain Co-op (MMC) announces the completion of the agreement to purchase the Shames Mountain Ski Area.
The final conditions were removed from the purchase agreement between MMC and the Shames Mountain Ski Corporation late in the year, and the land tenure for the ski area was officially transferred to MMC by the provincial government on December 21, 2012. MMC is extremely proud to have reached this remarkable milestone.
MMC members and the entire Shames Mountain community will be able to celebrate “We Own It” Day on Saturday, January 19 up at the ski hill, with a BBQ, cake, activities and tobogganing for kids, and a bonfire. Speeches and presentations will take place at 3:30 PM upstairs in the lodge.
My Mountain Co-op currently has more than 1,000 members and continues to draw support from area businesses, individuals and corporations all working together toward the sustainable operation of Shames Mountain ski area.
