Meet Murray Ridge Board of Directors

Murray Ridge Board of Directors is the owner of Murray Ridge Ski Area

The Murray Ridge Ski Area was opened in the 1970’s thanks to the dedicated efforts of a grassroots group of ski enthusiasts. It is one of just a handful of BC ski resorts that are society-owned and run, and is a shining testament to the hard work of the many volunteers throughout the decades who longed to bring skiing to families in the Fort St. James region. Today, the Murray Ridge Ski Area is still run by a non-profit society made up of volunteers and governed by a board of volunteers who live right in the Fort St. James community and region. The society is passionate about making skiing accessible, available and affordable to all Fort St. James residents while providing great family recreation and a chance to be active in the great winter outdoors.

Active. Fun. Exhilarating.

The Murray Ridge Ski area boasts a ski hill with 518 metres of vertical drop and a full 30 kilometres of alpine runs. There are runs for every skill level from beginner to experienced skier and snowboarder. Boarders can also use the snowboard park designed just for them. Cross-country skiers will enjoy exploring the resort’s 20 kilometres of groomed trails that meander through woods and around the mountain for breathtaking natural views. Guests can relax in the day lodge between runs. With its annual 300 centimetres of fresh northern snow, Murray Ridge Ski Area is a winter Heaven!
