Our "Skiing & Snowboarding-In-Schools Video", is another useful tool to help students and teachers plan for their trip. The video gives a step-by-step walk through of our Station Teaching and Graduated Lift Access Program allowing you and your students the opportunity to better understand the progression and benefits.

Tubing & WOW: Tubing in our new tubing area-students earn their fun with a short hike up and an exhilarating slide down. Choose from Tubing only or try our new Winter Outdoor Wonder Program (WOW); an introduction to winter wilderness in eastern Canada. Students use our snowshoes to walk our Discovery Nature Trail and learn interesting facts about wildlife, birds and outdoor winter survival. This program also includes use of our tube park and skating rink (bring your own skates). Both Tubing and WOW programs are designed to meet Ontario's physical education curriculum standards.

The tubing park is generally open Monday to Friday 10am-3pm, with advance booking and minimum number of 30 students.

  • Tubers names are not required on roster sheets.

  • When the Tubing Park is open for other schools, we generally offer single ride tubing tickets for $2.00 *at the discretion of the organizer
