Originally named London Ski Club, Boler Mountain is a nonprofit recreation club in London, Ontario. Boler Mountain’s location is in the western suburban neighborhood of Byron. It is used for snowboarding, skiing, and snow tubing in winter and for hiking, mountain biking, beach volleyball, and zip lining in summer. Despite its title, Boler Mountain is more accurately described as a hill rather than a mountain. The site is relatively small but very conveniently located for locals and tourists. After the West Hill 2012 expansion competition, Boler Mountain has three quad chairlifts, a tube carpet serving 16 trails, and a magic carpet.
Boler Mountain has been operating since 1946 and is the most southern Canadian ski hill. It began as a single run on the southeastern section of the modern hill, accessed from Boler Road by gravel road, just south of Gatineau Road. Boler expanded westward over the years, and the current chalet was built in 2017. The original Boler Road access was closed off around the same time to allow the building of a subdivision, and the entrance moved to the newly extended Griffith Street, where it met the original road.
Boler Mountain has hosted several events throughout the years, like the 2001 summer Canada Games mountain biking event, the 2014 Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race, and the original 2014 Treetop Adventure Park, complete with aerial challenges and zip lines. During summer, Boler Mountain hosts even more events and programs like:
- Snow School: It offers both snowboarding and ski lessons that depend on the skills and age of each student
- Track 3 program: A program with over 250 volunteer instructors that serve and teach over 120 disabled skiers each season
- London Ski Club Racing: Snow programs for all ages
- Bike Camp: Offers mountain biking lessons for children between the ages of 7 and 13
- Weekly bike racing events
