What is There to Do in Muskoka !?

Christmas holidays are a week away and New Years is 2 weeks away. What is there to do in Muskoka when we didn't get a dumping of snow like we got last year. (It shouldn't be a green Christmas in Muskoka. There is snow in the forecast this coming week.) Muskoka also gets lake effect snow from Georgian Bay which is hard for the weather forecasters to predict.

It has been cold so that the ground has frozen up. That means it's good for hiking in Algonquin Park... no mud to slog through! Without the leaves on the trees you can go farther, see farther and see more wildlife. The bears are asleep so there's no worries about a bear encounter. You could see a moose or deer. (no mosquitoes either!) On my walk this weekend I saw some birds: blue jays, chickadees and a noisy woodpecker.

Hidden Valley Highlands opens today on a limited basis for snow skiing and snowboarding. They have been making snow at every opportunity. More runs will open as the weather allows. At New Years, they have Fireworks and a bonfire.

Rock Ridge snow tubing park also has snow making will open on Dec 26, 2011 There's a lift to take you up to the top of the hills. Warm chalet with food service which is licensed for adults. There's a special New Years party at Rock Ridge

Our webcam page shows what it looks like out our window so you can see how much snow we've got.
