Embrace the Chill: Activities in Winter

Despite the cold temperatures, there are plenty of activities that can turn this chilly season into a thrilling adventure! To help you make the most of winter, we’ve put together some indoor & outdoor activities to satisfy all your pursuits. So bundle up and let the winter adventures begin!

Ice Skating

The number one outdoor activity for any True Canadian is undoubtedly skating. Whether you’re a seasoned skater or a novice, ice skating offers a perfect blend of elegance and excitement. No matter the event, if it’s a game of hockey or just gliding around on a lake at the cottage, skating can be a great source of exercise and fun! Reminder: be sure to check in at your local arena for public skate times!

Skiing and Snowboarding

Skiing and snowboarding are thrilling winter sports that offer an adrenaline rush like no other. Whether you’re racing down steep slopes or leisurely cruising through snowy landscapes, there’s a slope for every skill level. If steep hills aren’t your thing, consider cross-country skiing! So grab your gear and hit the slopes this winter! And remember, there’s nothing better than lounging at the ski resort after a long day! .


Strap on a pair of snowshoes and venture into the great outdoors! This is a great way to experience the quiet and calm of winter (on those nice days of course). It’s also a great time for winter photography, especially after some freshly fallen snow where the path has yet to be spoiled with foot traffic. Don’t own a pair, consider sourcing snowshoes via rentals or family!


What a great way to spend a long weekend during the winter months. Snowmobiling gives you the chance to look forward to the accumulating snowfall and enjoy the serenity of winter. Fortunately, Ontario is home to many fantastic, groomed trails and lodges with rentals and guides. Add snowmobiling to your list this winter!

Outdoor Bonfires

Any one of the above listed activities can be topped off perfectly with an outdoor bonfire! It’s a great way to get warm and cozy and relax after a day of exhilaration. Grab your favourite warm drink and a warm coat and enjoy the comfort and glow of the fire!


From baking cookies and crafting to movie marathons and board games, there are endless ways to enjoy cozy moments indoors. Invite friends and family to join in the fun, and create cherished memories that will last long after the snow has melted away.

There’s so many winter activities to enjoy and the short days don’t have to be boring! Make the most of the winter season this year and get out there!

Snow Removal Made Easy!

When the snow starts, it’s quite magical. Then follows the realization that you’re in for the long and strenuous task of removing it all from your deck! Proper snow removal sounds obvious but here’s some helpful tips to help extend the lifespan of your investments.
