York Region Youth Winter Activities

York Region's winterís are typical for Canada, with the "lake effect" keeping them somewhat mild, yet allowing a lot of snow to fall. Barring unusual cold spells, there is enough snow to make snow forts, toboggan and cross-country ski in the city. Here are a couple of winter suggestions:

  2. Take a hike along the community's bike paths and recreational trails. They're especially pretty with fresh snow on the ground. The most scenic are:

  3. Go tobogganning at the various hills in the area

  4. Head out of town The countryside around the GTA has some winter wonderlands with lots of snow.

  5. Go snowmobiling on trails nearby but out of town

  6. Go Downhill skiing with hills in Thornhill, Uxbridge, Alliston, or to the north along the Niagara Escarmpment near Collingwood or the rugged hills north of Barrie

  7. Enjoy the holiday light displays In December each year, there are four popular holiday light displays:
