Non-stop winter action throughout the day and well into the night.

From fireside skating to moonlight skiing, snowshoeing at sunrise to candlelit events, the southern Georgian Bay and Simcoe County is a mecca for unexpected, dawn-to-dusk winter fun.

Blue Mountain Resort is your base for snow adventure. The cumulative effect of Georgian Bay weather delivers some of the best skiing and snowboarding conditions in Ontario. Get the scoop on rentals, lift tickets, season passes, and trail hours at Activity Central before hitting the slopes to channel your inner speed demon and carve up the trails or try out the snowboarding runs. The forty-two runs at Blue Mountain range from beginner to double black diamond, and thirty trails are lit for night skiing, so true diehards can ski from sunup to sundown. Enjoy the extraordinary views from the new mountaintop 11 kilometre skating trail Blue. Après ski, recharge in the outdoor heated pools at Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain or check out the food, drink and shopping scene in Blue Mountain Village.

In addition to awesome downhill, sample more snow adventures, such as touring by horse drawn sleigh and skating a forest trail lit by tiki torches at Fern Resort on Lake Couchiching and snowshoeing or fat biking at Horseshoe Resort.

Add a little sparkle to the holidays during First Light at Sainte-Marie among the Hurons in Midland, on select dates in November and December. The site is illuminated by over 5000 candles, so bring your camera.
