Helpful Hints to Stay Warm

3-layer approach

  1. Wicking (worn next to your skin keeping moisture and sweat away form your skin)
  2. Insulating (middle layer that keeps the cold out and warmth in)
  3. Protection (exterior layer to guard against elements)

Good

  • Loose Insulating layer allowing a full range of movement
  • Long underwear & footless tights
  • Wool or acrylic socks
  • Goggles. Wearing eye protection with UV

Bad

  • Cotton. It will absorb sweat and make you shiver.
  • Bulky insulating layer
  • Wearing more than one pair of socks can lead to unwanted blisters, restrict circulation and result in cold feet.
  • Long scarves

Mountain Stats

  • Largest beginner terrain in Ontario
  • 36 Slopes
  • 8 chair lifts
  • 4 Magic carpet lifts
  • Affordable rates
  • Located on Highway 400 just 20min north of Barrie
