1966 was a cool time so it is apt that Stony Mountain Ski Area was founded in that era. Gary, Heather & Camryn (since 2000) Dewar purchased Stony Mountain in 1988. We were inspired after the Calgary Olympics! 24 years later and lots of changes in skliing and snowboarding here we are! Stony Mountain started 44 years ago when John McFarlane, Ted Bancroft, Bob Stewart and Charles Williams had a vision to bring skiing to the prairies close to Winnipeg. These pioneers had the foresight and werewithal to design a ski area on the east escarpment of Stony Mountain.
