Bundle up and get ready for a day of some cold, traditional, outdoor fun – whether it be snowtubing, skating, snowshoeing or skiing, York Region has got the spot for you!
If you’re a fan of snowtubing, head to Georgina’s The ROC for a morning of exhilarating fun sliding down the slopes of their snow tube hill. For younger kids, try out the free toboggan hill and ice-skating rink adjacent to the tube park – be sure to pack your skates and a sled!
Want to tackle your morning at a slower speed, head to King City’s Cold Creek Conservation Area and take to their trails. Cross-country skis and snowshoe rentals are available to make your way through their groomed, scenic trails and with 6.6km of trails, there’s one for all skill levels. Now if you’re more of a downhill skier, then Uplands Ski Club is the place for you. Uplands Ski Club offers a great environment for beginners of all ages. Or take a stab at snowboarding and enjoy the challenge in a non-threatening atmosphere!
Take a break from the cold and warm up with a bite to eat at Market & Co., Newmarket’s new 40,000 square foot food market. Stroll the aisles and check out the artisanal merchants, before sitting down for lunch at one of their delectable restaurants.
And as an added bonus, if you still have some holiday shopping to do, come with your list handy as Market & Co. is conveniently located at Upper Canada Mall.
Last stop is back outdoors at Horton’s Home Tree Farm, in Stouffville, where you’ll find that perfect tree for the holidays, and guess what, you’ll be chopping it down yourselves too! But don’t fret, hot chocolate is served to keep you warm.
