New addition to Mt. Dufour ski hill in Elliot Lake
SUDBURY -- The driving forces behind a new terrain park at Mt. Dufour in Elliot Lake are excited about this weekend.
Father and son duo, Tom and Devin O’Grady, along with a group of others, have made it their mission to expand the ski hill.
"When we talked to the Mt. Dufour board of directors, we were given permission to try to put a park together on a piece of property on the ski area," said Tom O’Grady. "But it was a piece on the skill hill that was heavily forested."
After trees were removed and the land graded, the park finally took shape.
The new terrain park includes: rails, boxes, and jumps for skiers and snowboarders.
They also built a jump for skiers within the terrain park.
The group has raised more than $50,000 in donations and in-kind contributions.
