The weather during the Christmas holiday in Southern Ontario were definitely not winter like this year. Rain, fog and temperatures approaching 10 C guaranteed that no one in the area would be experiencing a white Christmas.
But Brimacombe Ski Resort, located 45 minutes east of Toronto, managed to deliver the next best thing to Jackie Robinson and her family, thanks to a large dump truck full of man-made snow collected from the ski hill.
The #SendMeSnow contest rules were simple. Provide a compelling reason why you should be sent a load of snow, and live within 150km of Brimacombe.
On December 23, the large truck backed up to the Bowmanville family’s front lawn and dumped 25 yards of snow on the green grass, providing a winter playground for Robinson’s kids and their friends. A simple idea, well executed by the team at Brimacombe.
