Whether visitors prefer soaring downhill on skis or on a snowboard, Dagmar Ski Resort offers ample terrain for visitors of all ages, novices and experts alike. Riders can also check out the four progressive terrain parks, the largest in the Durham region, which features up to 60 elements and evolving snow creations at a time. The ski school, meanwhile, takes in skiers and boarders of all stripes and helps them improve turns and build confidence. The school especially prides itself on its accessibility for beginners, visible through such features as gentle slopes and magic carpet lifts.
Located about 30km from Toronto, Ski Dagmar was voted the third-best winter attraction in Ontario by readers of Toronto4Kids.
Canoes float under a sunny sky, kayakers speed along lush riverbanks, and standup paddleboards engage core muscles in adrenaline-pumping workouts. With dozens of watercraft for rent and sale, BayCreek Paddling Center's team brings aquatic adventures like these to life. Their staff members, which range from young enthusiasts to 30-year industry veterans, launch customers into Irondequoit Creek, where they can float amid an orchestra of bird songs and opera-trained fish. In addition to rentals, the staff guide activities. Aboard their various watercraft, certified instructors lead lessons and nature tours that wind through glacier-carved terrain and former Seneca Native American lands.
Though the winter snow has melted, inner tubes continue to zoom down the routes at Chicopee Tube Park—now cruising atop Italian mats, designed for waterless tubing. A host of other outdoor attractions complement the park’s eponymous activity. Two ziplines—an 80-metre line for first timers and a 300-metre line for veteran fliers—let passengers glide above the treetops without having to hitch a ride on a passing pterodactyl. The Eurobungy trampoline also gives guests the gift of flight, granting harness-sporting park-goers the ability to leap up to 25 feet in the air, and the spider-web climbing tower offers stationary bird’s-eye views once climbers have hoisted themselves to its pinnacle. For low-to-the-ground fun, harnessed participants at the horizontal ropes can balance six feet off the ground, getting a taste of tightrope walking without that chalky, acrophobic aftertaste.
Home of the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games, Hardwood Ski and Bike has more than 300 acres and 80 kilometers of single- and double-track trails, so when they say they emphasize quality over quantity, it really means something. Designed for walkers, runners, and bikers of all ages, the trails include both gentle rolling hills for beginners and highly technical trails featuring elite challenges. Since the trails are carved into a sandy base, they aren't threatened by rain storms or spa workers harvesting mud for mud wraps.
