Maple Ski Ridge Snow Sports School is pleased to announce being a Registered Member of PSIA/AASI  (The Professional Ski Instructors Association and American Academy of Snowboard Instructors)  Our professional instructors are top notch and can’t wait to share the thrill of skiing and riding with you and your family.


At Maple Ski Ridge we also offer snow tubing, birthday parties and group rates.  When we're not sharing our love of the winter people ask "So what do you do during the summer...?'


Here's the answer - We host Weddings, graduation parties and family reunions.  In July we hold our annual Run the Ridge Mud and Obstacle run.  10 weeks of summer camp for the kids - come one week or the whole summer, pick and choose what you need.  A Healthy Living Expo in September and our Fall Festival Craft, Car and Tractor show in October.


There's something for everyone at Maple Ski Ridge.
