Never Ever Day (at Participating Ski Resorts)
Date: Saturday, January 11 – Sunday, March 29
Location: Participating Ski Resorts Across Ontario
Local Ski Resorts taking part: Mount St Louis Moonstone, Snow Valley Ski Resort, Hidden Valley Highlands, Horseshoe Resort.
Details: Crisp winter air. Trees covered in snow. Carving down the hill with friends. Sipping hot chocolate by the fireplace. For many Canadians, skiing or snowboarding is more than just an activity, it’s a full-day experience. That’s what makes it so special and why we think every Canadian deserves to try it. Enter Never Ever Days…
Never Ever Days is the ultimate beginners’ package for anyone who’s ever considered trying skiing or snowboarding, providing everything you need – equipment rental, beginner lift ticket, and a lesson – for just $25 (+tax).
Who is a Never Ever Day for? Someone who has “Never Ever” tried skiing or snowboarding. And someone who tried skiing or snowboarding years ago and need a refresher.
Date: December 28 to March 28 (Saturdays)
Location: Barrie - Horseshoe Resort - 1101 Horseshoe Valley Road West (Main Chalet)
Details: Perfect for the whole family! Snowshoeing is a great way to enjoy the trails while also getting some exercise. Using the moonlight and your own headlamp (which we provide!), enjoy a 2km moonlight snowshoe through the forest. Afterwards, enjoy some marshmallows and hot chocolate by the roaring fire.
We are a pet friendly resort, which means you are welcome to bring your furry friend along with you.
