Ours to Share

It all began in 1977 when a few rugged pioneers completed what was then and still remains the longest T-Bar in North America to serve the public of the small community of Fort St. James. And so Murray Ridge was born with not so humble beginnings and continues on to this day with that tradition by providing a ski/board destination unlike anywhere else. Built and run for 40 years entirely by the local community The Ridge carries on the heritage of small town vibe coupled with big mountain terrain.
