The slopes at Stoneham have remained quiet ever since an employee lockout on November 27, after staff insisted upon wage parity with their colleagues at nearby Mont-Sainte-Anne, which like Stoneham is owned by Resorts of the Canadian Rockies.

Unionized full-time on-mountain workers voted 85% to return to work in a ballot cast on December 17 after obtaining concessions regarding wages, pensions and pay grades. Following the vote, Stoneham opened its lifts for the season this past weekend.
