The Government of Prince Edward Island has spent CAN$397 000 on a new PistenBully snow groomer for the Mark Arendz Provincial Ski Park in Brookvale, Canada.

It replaces a groomer that had been in service for over two decades, but broke down last month leading to a delayed start to the season.

Brookvale’s Director of Operations, Allan Matters, said: "Breakdowns have become a fairly common occurrence over the last few years, and repairs have often been costly."

"This new groomer is a game changer for us. It reduces the time it will take to prepare the runs, and lessens the possibility of costly and untimely breakdowns."

Economic Development and Tourism Minister, Chris Palmer, said: “This is great news for the province’s only downhill skiing facility, and for skiers and snowboarders of all ages. The purchase of a new groomer for Brookvale provides the facility with a new, far more reliable and efficient groomer. It will help ensure we are able to open the facility and have it ready for users at the earliest possible opportunity after every snowfall and especially at the start of the season.”
