Lively Ski Hill

231 First Avenue
Lively, ON

Opening Requirements

To safely open, Lively Ski Hill requires a sufficient amount of both man-made and natural snow on the ski runs and ski lift loading and unloading areas. Snowmaking uses two on the ground snow guns with built-in air compressors and fans that require colder temperatures. Our ability to make snow requires consistent temperatures of -15 C or below for a minimum of 48 hours with a relative humidity of 20 per cent or less.  Strong winds can delay snowmaking to prevent snow from drifting into the immediate area.

January openings are not unheard of at Lively Ski Hill, and tend to fluctuate between December 27 to January 17.

There’s a new way to register for leisure programs or book a facility. It’s easy to create an account! If you need help getting started, click here for our Frequently Asked Questions.



The French interface of our new registration system is still under development, however it is important that the City goes live with the new system as the existing registration and facility booking system is no longer supported by the vendor. Residents can still receive this service in French by calling 311 to have a French-speaking operator process bookings or registrations. The French interface will be launched in time for the fall/winter registration period.
