Pack up the family and gear up for a fun day in Headwaters. Snowshoeing, outdoor skating and skiing can all be enjoyed in this winter wonderland.
Visitors can experience the best that winter has to offer at Island Lake Conservation Area. Go for a skate on the pond or explore the 2-kilometre skate track. The conservation area is also home to a host of groomed trails. Enjoy an afternoon of snowshoeing through the winter woods with the family – a guaranteed memory-maker. Snowshoes can be rented on-site at the Rental Centre.
For those seeking a downhill thrill, Hockley Valley Resort has 15 scenic slopes to experience. With hills suitable for all levels of skier, Hockley Valley also has an upper and lower freestyle terrain park. For weekday skiing, Mansfield Ski Club opens its beautiful hills to the public. Located in the rolling hills of Mulmur, the ski club is ideal for seasoned and new skiers alike. Lessons, as well as rentals are available at both of these family-friendly ski hills.
After a day of outdoor adventure its time to warm-up and refuel with great food and drink for the whole family. Visit the award-winning Spirit Tree Estate Cidery. Take a seat in the Ciderhouse Bistro for a pint of Spirit Tree Cider, and a warm cider for the kids. Their fabulous wood-fired oven pizzas are a treat for the table and only available on weekends.
To the north, close to Mansfield Ski Club is The Globe Restaurant in Rosemont. This cozy historic restaurant is the perfect place to take the chill off, with hearty homemade soups and biscuits, comfort foods and a kid’s menu.
