Ski and Snow Reports at Ontario Provincial Parks

There are 18 Ontario Provincial Parks offering winter activities including, snowshoeing, tobogganing, snow tubing and cross country skiing. Check the Ontario Parks Snow report before heading out. Many parks have rental equipment on site for classic and skate skiing as well as snowshoeing. Some have snow tubes and tubing available and some Tubes are provided (no charge) at the tubing hill or visitors can bring their own crazy carpet or soft toboggans.

Snowmobile Snow Updates and Trail Conditions

Pick your getaway location from more than 50 snowmobile packages and check check with both the property owner and the The Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC). OFSC trails are clearly marked and well-defined corridors with fewer dangerous surprises. Because they are groomed and used regularly, overall they are smoother and wider, with better sight lines and fewer hazardous corners, intersections, inclines and obstacles.Traffic signs are prevalent throughout the system to give riders as much advance warning as possible of trail conditions ahead. Check snowmobile trail status and conditions in your resort destination area before heading out.

What is the winter driving like?

On your way north to the snowbelt areas you need to stay alert, slow down and stay in control — the three key elements of safe winter driving. Drive according to highway and weather snow and ice conditions. Keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. Avoid situations where you may have to brake suddenly on a slippery surface.

Watch out for black ice! If snow white-outs can be avoided, get off the highway at the nearest exit and wait out the storm. See more information on road safety during the winter in Ontario. Make sure you get your snow tires before heading north in Ontario.

How do I dress for winter in Ontario and Northern Ontario?

Winter coats-boots-gloves are a must have. A comfortable winter outdoors increases fun and enjoyment. Appropriate winter boots and a winter coat, will keep you warm for the winter snow and winter weather (link to winter weather & road conditions) for all of your Ontario outdoor recreation needs. Active sports enthusiasts should include layers of cloths, that can be removed as the body heats up. Keep in mind each winter sport has its own recommended clothing.

Snow conditions should continue to be excellent for x-country and downhill skiing for 2014-2015. See Environment Canada for latest seasonal forecasts on winter and snow conditions. Outdoor winter snow and sports enthusiasts can check the snow snowboard and ski reports.

What else can I do in central and northern Ontario?

Winter Carnival fun, outdoor activities, getaways and even good books and a roaring fireplace make winter better. Check out the side of this page >> for Winter Blues remedies!
