Stony Mountain Ski Area is possibly the only prairie resort that isn’t stretching it by having “mountain” in its name. The small limestone mountain is located less than 15 km north of Winnipeg, offering spectacular views of the city’s skyline. Stony has 12 acres of rideable terrain spread across six runs with 30 metres of vertical drop. Two surface lifts shuttle skiers and boarders to the top allowing for a respectable number of hot laps in a day. Stony is expanding on their terrain park this upcoming season by adding in new beginner and junior features. For those of you who suffer from smartphone separation anxiety, Stony has free WiFi across the entire mountain.
