These are the reasons why March Break is the best time to have some winter fun with the family.

Last Chance To Enjoy Some Winter
The snow usually sticks around in March and begins its eventual melt in the following month of April. This means that March Break may be your last chance to partake in all the winter activities you love until next season comes around. Ontario’s Central Counties has a plethora of winter sports to squeeze the last bit of fun out of winter while the snow is still here. Try some backcountry snowshoeing on Mabel Davis Trail to take some time away from the big city and be one with nature. The family will love getting active as you trek further and further through the white, fluffy snow.

Weather Is Warmer And The Snow Remains
One of the great things about enjoying winter activities in March is that the sun shines brighter and the weather is warmer. If you are one of those that likes getting active, but are discouraged by the chilly temperatures, March Break is the perfect time to enjoy outdoor activities without freezing. March can produce some truly beautiful days that hint at the arrival of spring, but still look like winter. Why not come out to Ontario’s Central Counties and spend a day or two playing in the snow? Build a snowman or snow fort with the family and stay warm while having fun.

Getting In Shape For Spring
Maybe this has been one of those winters with a little too much sitting around. Hopefully not, but it is too easy to be lazy in winter. Then, all of a sudden when the nice weather comes you’re not ready! Spring is on its way and with it more opportunity to go outside and get active. March Break is a good time to start healthy habits that will carry over into spring. Teach the whole family that being active is the right choice and get in shape for the coming months. Try hiking down Unionville Valleylands Trail for an easy activity that everyone can enjoy together.
