I checked with the Horseshoe and they will open on the New Year Day. Since we have to work the next day, I am planning to have a short ski trip on the New Year Day.


Morning: We will leave at the carpool location (Downsview Station) at 9:15am and arrive at the Horseshoe around 10:30am. Please note that we will not stop for breakfast on the way to Horseshoe. Please have your breakfast at home before the trip :)

Afternoon: We will leave Horseshoe by 2:30pm at the latest and be back at Downsview subway station around 4:00pm.

We will ski separately or in small groups according to your level and pace. There is a chalet with food and drinks. However, the food bar may not be open on the New Year Day. Therefore, you must bring your own lunch and snacks.

Note: I just recently recover from my knee injury. As a result, I am sorry that I won't be able to ski with the group. I will only ski a very short period of time and will rest in the chalet.

A trail pass costs $26.00 (plus tax) per person. If you need to rent equipment, it costs an additional $35.00 (plus tax) for a total of $61.00 (plus tax) per person.
