Go Downhill Fast

Tobogganing at the ROC in Georgina always hits the spot. Bring your own sled and a thermos of hot chocolate, and you can keep the fun going all day!

Go for a Zip

Here are three secrets about winter zip-lining – the lines are shorter, it costs less than in summer, and it’s not as cold as you think it’s going be! Visit Treetop Eco-Adventure Park and swoop over the snow-covered trees like the majestic hawk you are.

Ride Your “B-icicle”

Discover a whole new angle to biking! Fat bikes have wide tires that are perfect for riding on snow. Headwaters has wonderful trails for all levels. Who says riding a bike has to be a summer activity?!

Get a Kick Out of Kick-Sledding

If you combined dog-sledding with cross-country skiing, you’d get kick-sledding! It’s a great way to explore the outdoors and it provides more stability than skiing. Rent a sled and give the sport a try at Island Lake Conservation Area.
