Ski Cape Smokey

38696 Cabot Trail Ingonish Beach



Ski Cape Smokey has been premier ski resort destination in Atlantic Canada for many years that delighted visitors with exceptional skiing from mountain to ocean in one of Canada’s most scenic and popular destination areas. For the last 10 or more years, Ski Cape Smokey operated under the passion and perseverance of local community volunteers.

In 2019, new owners finalized the details of purchasing the property and have great vision and plans for Cape Smokey. Cape Smokey Holdings have committed to limited operation of the Ski Hill and lodge facilities for the 2019 / 2020 season as a transition year and as an opportunity for all who have fond memories to come see the old lodge and hill one last season before re-development begins.
Ski Cape Smokey will open limited days and with only the poma lift in operation as the chair lift is not operational and will be replaced with a Gondola in the future.

There will be event and race weekends as well as a Craft Beer Festival and many other events to come enjoy so check back regularly for more information.
We welcome you to come visit us this season to share in some past nostalgia of Ski Cape Smokey as well as catch a glimpse of the vision of the new Ski Cape Smokey!
See you on Top of old Smokey this season!
