History of the Association

Here is the short and sweet version of the history of Searchmont Resort:

Searchmont Ski Association Inc (SSAI) operates Searchmont Resort. SSAI was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in the 2001-2002 Season. In 2005 SSAI not only operated the Resort over the next three seasons, but also completed the necessary infrastructure improvements to ensure the safety and enjoyment of its customers. They wanted to make sure that wintertime recreation was available to tourists and locals.

The corporation feels that the Resort is crucial to the Professional / Physician recruitment efforts in Sault Ste. Marie, as well as ensuring winter recreation, employment, and athletic opportunities are available in this region. 

Currently, The Economic Development Corporation (EDC) owns the property, while the Resort operation has continued under SSAI.
