Mount Cain sets holiday skiing schedule

Ski area closed Christmas Eve and Christmas day, then open through New Year

Gazette staff

Mount Cain Ski Area will be closed Saturday and Sunday for Christmas Eve and Christmas day, but North Island skiers can make up for lost weekend time by taking advantage of the holiday schedule to follow.

Mount Cain will open daily from Dec. 26 through Jan. 2 during usual daylight hours.

The ski area received 12 centimetres of new snow Monday and Tuesday, and the forecast calls for more snow this week and through the weekend.

McCarrick lends hand

Port Hardy’s Curtis McCarrick assisted on the game-winner Saturday as the North Island Silvertips of Nanaimo edged the visiting Vancouver Canadians 4-3 in B.C. Major Midget Hockey League play.

The victory gave the Silvertips a weekend sweep of the Canadians.

McCarrick, a first-year midget, was the co-MVP of last season’s provincial-qualifying North Island Eagles bantam squad.
