Ontario Snowshoeing

The Highway 400 & Highway 11 corridor is the major access route into Ontario’s snowshoe country. An array of Ontario snowshoe trails awaits the most avid snowshoe or the novice.

The history of the snowshoe evolved out of necessity. Without a reliable means of winter transportation, arctic tribesman would be limited to short treks around their camps. The advent of the snowshoe allowed for effective Winter hunting and transportation.

The snowshoe effectively distributes the hiker’s mass across a larger area of snow, thus allowing him/her to float on the surface of the snow. The new light weight snowshoes are perfect for the aging baby boomers. Check the 400Eleven snowshoeing tips to make your Ontario outdoors winter experience one of the best ever.

This Winter snowshoe through the many spectacular scenery’s in Ontario’s natural playground. From the first time snowshoe adventurer wanting a basic lesson, to a family outdoor outing can be as close as a getaway to Scenic Caves Nordic Centre in Collingwood. For the more adventurous the drive to Couples Resort in Whitney for a truly rewarding experience. Wye Marsh in Midland will lead you on a 3-hr. eco tour.

Ski clubs such as the High Park Ski Club in Toronto, Ontario offer special packages throughout the province, and provide transportation for the drive north into Ontario’s Snowshoe Country.

Whatever the skill level, there’s a getaway package and trail for every family member in Ontario’s Winter Wonderland.
