Tubing is great for all ages!
Wow, another week of family fun is in the can. It’s been a great season, weather-wise, and families and kids have been enjoying winter sports, events and activities like nobody’s business!
Last weekend, Willie, the world famous groundhog, predicted an early spring so families looking for snowy getaways and activities should get those activities in before it’s too late!
As always, we suggest heading to ski hills and trails to enjoy some exercise, fresh air and fun. Families can enjoy downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snow tubing, snowshoeing and other winter sport activities at the the following places north of Toronto.
Kids and family events for the weekend ahead, by area:
Demo Day: Come to Hardwood Ski and Bike and try out the latest equipment from Fischer, One Way, Rossignol and Salomon before you put your money down.
Try it before you buy it.
