Grey

A Winter’s Dream

Grey sparkles and shimmers in the winter bordered by the waters of Georgian Bay.   Its seven frosty waterfalls are accessible by snowshoe trails.  With the four-season Blue Mountain Resort, extensive snowmobile, snowshoe, cross-country ski and hiking trails, it’s a natural outdoor playground.  Add restaurants, galleries, theatres and fun attractions and you have a sublime recipe for winter adventure!

Resort to Winter Fun

Blue Mountain Resort is Ontario’s largest mountain resort.  The resort pretty much has something for everyone – great downhill skiing and snowboarding, Blue Mountain Village with shops, restaurants and nightlife plus attractions like the Plunge! Aquatic Centre.  New for this winter season is the Woodview Mountaintop Skating loop, scheduled to open in January 2018.  Snow tube, whip down the mountainside on the Ridge Runner, or snowshoe through the Village and up the mountain.  Relax and rejuvenate at the award-winning iwaSpa. A variety of on-site accommodation and getaway packages make this a must-visit winter destination. 

Winter Thrills and Chills

Hike or snowshoe the Bruce Trail as it winds through Grey showcasing some of the best vistas on this amazing trail.  There’s no shortage of hiking or snowshoeing locations as the trail network passes through conservation lands, communities and natural forests.  Notch up the thrill factor and do some winter caving, with guided tours available through At Last Adventures and Free Spirit Tours.  Soothe tired muscles and soak the kinks out at the end of the day at the beautiful Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain (this is a popular spot, so be sure to check ahead to see if there is a wait list in place).

Hop on That Sled and Ride

With more than 2400 kilometres of groomed snowmobile trails in this area of District 9, snowmobilers can plan one to two day or even longer excursions.  Snowmobile friendly accommodation and restaurants are dotted along the trails.  Create your own travel 
itinerary or choose one from the 
District 9 website.

It’s All About the Food

Grey’s culinary attractions continue to grow and thrive!  Small, unique restaurants can be found throughout the region with Thornbury as a delectable hub with its many restaurants and specialty food shops.  Apples are a year-round business here!  Follow the award-winning Apple Pie Trail to sample apple-themed goodies and dishes. Visit businesses with apple-themed wares and experience a few apple-related adventures, such as the Snowshoe Tour with Wine & Cheese Tasting or the Grapes, Apples & Hops Tour.  Fresh apples can be found at some area farm stores and farmers’ markets, open year-round.  And the unique Red Prince Apple is available from January to early summer – look for it at various retail outlets.

And There’s More…

Round out your visit by taking the time to tour the Grey Roots Museum & Archives, visit the Tom Thomson Art Gallery, take in a show at Meaford Hall or the Roxy Theatre in Owen Sound.  Browse through art galleries and studios featuring works by local artists.  Pick up a copy of the Art Map for gallery locations and dates of upcoming shows and exhibits.
 
Enjoy one, two or more festivals, stay awhile, play, shop, dine, relax and breathe at a spa. 
 
Colour it your way in Grey this winter…
