The Adventure

With its unique location high atop the mountain, the Nordic Adventures Centre is one of the finest natural winter playgrounds in Ontario.

It’s a magical world filled with fresh, crisp winter air, covered in pristine snow, and soothing forest tranquility. Guests regularly catch glimpses of white-tailed deer and a variety of winter birds.

Classic skiers enjoy warming up on “Easy Peezy”. It’s a tranquil , serene dreamland.  All trails except “Easy Peezy” are groomed for skate skiing.

Spectacular landscapes are witnessed at “Lookout Point” and “Rock Face”. At “Logan’s Run” you can view the bay from one direction and the countryside from the other.

Skiers rave about the gentle rolling terrain of “Northwest Passage” which follows the scenic tree line and opens out to vast rolling expanses.

“Murphy’s Run” boasts fun, fast and winding downhill challenges.

After an exhilarating adventure through this magical wonderland, ‘keep the good times going’ with family and friends by sharing some hot food and drink and relaxing around the woodstove in the cozy chalet.
