I have decided to switch location from Highlands Nordic to Horseshoe Valley. This because Horseshoe has excellent snow conditions (I just confirmed this) and unlike Highlands has all of their trails open. At Horseshoe a trail pass costs $26.00 (plus tax) per person. If you need to rent equipment too the package costs $61.00 (plus tax) per person.

We have been going to Horseshoe a lot this weekend. This because of iffy snow conditions and the fact Hardwood does not have their chalet open after the fire earlier this season.

We will ski in small group according to your level and pace. There is a chalet with food and drinks, though it only serves basic food. Therefore, you might want to bring your own lunch.

WHEN YOU SIGN UP PLEASE ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS IN THE NOTES SECTIONS - Just paste the questions there and then answer them.

For drivers, and possible drivers…
1. How many passengers can you take with you, if you take skis and if you don’t take Skis? Also, can you take skis on roof racks? Important for people with long skis.

For everyone...
2. Are you taking skis up with you? Or will you rent them?
3. If you are taking your skis, how long are they? – Please estimate if you are unsure.
4. Would you like a short, informal ski lesson?
5. Would you like to go out for dinner back in Toronto?

We will meet back in the chalet at 4:30pm at the latest, leave Highlands Nordic by 5 pm. and be back at Sheppard West/Downsview around 7:00pm.
