Nordic Skiing & Snowshoeing

Tis the season to Plan Ahead, Book Ahead no matter what activity you're planning to do. Check ahead for business operating hours, changes to pass purchases and to see if some services and amenities are not offered at this time. As elsewhere in Ontario, provincial COVID protocols are in place where required.

Always breathtaking, BruceGreySimcoe has the trails, groomed and ungroomed, to match your ski style and your skill level.  Due to the growing popularity of snowshoeing, most of the operators across the region have snowshoe trails, too.  If you’re new to either sport and just trying it out, equipment rentals and lessons are available either on-site or at local outfitters (please call ahead for availability of rentals during 2021/22 season).
