While many GTA-ers are probably rejoicing at the lack of snow we’ve gotten in the area, others aren’t so thrilled. For many, winter is their favourite time of year. Not only is it picturesque, but the winter specific activities you can take part in are heaps of fun. For those who like to frolic in the snow they have to wait all year long to hit the slopes to snowboard, ski, or toboggan. A fresh coat of snow is also necessary if you want to do some cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. Thankfully we’re expected to get a little over the weekend, and to celebrate, we’re listing off some great trails to snowshoe on in and around the Whitby area.
The winter season drums up a mixed bag of opinions. Some people love those frosty days, while others (literally) hide from them. The best way to approach winter and its below freezing temperatures is to just embrace it! Bundle up, get outside, and partake in all the fun winter activities the season has to offer. Whether you’re making snow angels, skiing on the slopes, or hunting down a warm and tasty hot chocolate, joining in the winter fun some way or another will make the time fly by. Another great winter activity, and probably one of Canada’s most beloved is ice skating! There are lots of great spots throughout the GTA to dust off your skates and hit the rink, but these are some of our favourites.
