North York Ski Centre (also known as the Earl Bales Ski & Snowboard Centre) is a small alpine skiing hill located in Earl Bales Park, close to the intersection of Bathurst Street and Sheppard Avenue in Toronto. It features one quad chair and a rope tow, serving three intermediate slopes and one beginner slope. It is one of two ski hills located within the boundaries of Toronto, the other being the Centennial Park. The hills is a natural formation from the edge of the Don River.

In 2011 and 2012, repeated failures of the now-retired double chair brought up talks of closing the centre. Instead, the city decided to revitalize the club by adding a quad chair.

The main entrance to Earl Bales Park is named after Raoul Wallenberg.[citation needed]
