Former Talisman Property

For over 40 years Talisman Mountain Resort was a part of the Grey Highlands community. Opening in 1963, the resort  offered twenty-two rooms, two large dormitories, two chair lifts, one T-Bar, fireside lounge, and the Edelweiss Bar. At that time, it was the largest ski school with twenty instructors in Ontario. Between 1964 and 1968 the addition of the golf course, Beaver Lodge, swimming pool and four tennis courts enabled the resort to become a four seasons destination. Mr. Jake Hammer purchased the resort in the 1980’s and made it the first resort in Ontario to offer snowboarders complete access to ski areas. Over time the resort grew to eighty-two rooms, two-hundred seat dining room, meeting rooms, hot tubs, sauna and extensive Snowboard Park. In March 2006 Talisman Resort GP Inc. purchased the property. Unfortunately, in March 2011 the resort closed. Tax sales were conducted on the property resulting in the sale of two land parcels (for more information see The Former Talisman Property Options Paper). During a Special Council Meeting held on September 25, 2013, Council authorized staff to draft terms of reference for an Advisory Committee to assist in determining the future course of the property. On October 8, 2013, the Municipality of Grey Highlands vested (took ownership) the former Talisman property.
