Just as a furry rodent named Willie is about to predict whether we’ll endure – or enjoy – more winter, activities to embrace the season are in full swing.
This includes fat bikes on snowy trails, downhill skiing/snowboarding combined with a luxury hotel stay and fine dining at Casino Rama, and snowshoeing and fondue.
Hit the trails
Ride Guides has taken its popular mountain bike program and extended it with “fat bikes” on winter trails at Horseshoe Valley near Barrie.

“Everyone is very curious to try fat biking,” said Sara Archer, operations manager and guide.
These are bicycles with over-sized tires and wide rims designed for riding on soft unstable terrain such as snow and sand.
