Explore deep snow, untouched winter wilderness and rural charm in Ontario's Highlands

(News Release)
PEMBROKE, ON – Located just 2.5 hours east of Toronto and 30 minutes west of Ottawa, Ontario's Highlands offers unique and memorable winter experiences for travellers seeking to escape the city and embrace all that is great about this frosty season.

With some of the deepest snowfalls in the province, thousands of kilometres of untouched wilderness and friendly rural charm unmatched anywhere else in Ontario, the region is a premier winter destination for relaxation, adventure and the ultimate in cold-weather bragging rights.

Powder junkies can glide through the region’s endless snowmobile trails, or, with Calabogie Peaks, Madawaska Mountain, Sir Sam’s and Mount Pakenham all in your backyard, you don’t have to go far to experience a true snow day on the ski slopes.

In Ontario’s Highlands, every twist, loop and bend of the landscape is seen through the blur of foggy goggles; every hill is experienced within the serene backdrop of white-covered tree tops; every carve is accompanied by excited breaths of fresh, crisp air and every brag-worthy moment begins in a cloud of white fluffy dust that only settles once you conquer the thrill of flying. 

Featuring 23,000 square kilometres of winter awesomeness and over 7,000 frozen lakes to explore, Ontario’s Highlands offers unparalleled opportunities for story-worthy moments and unforgettable weekend getaways.

Reel in trophy game walleye and pike from the serene comfort of a heated ice hut or experience the exhilaration of being drawn into the wilderness by a pack of Siberian Huskies. Leave fresh tracks while snowshoeing through the sparkling outdoors or conquer a challenging ice wall with the help of a trained guide.

You can also show your Canadian pride by venturing to the region’s many warm and picturesque small-town communities like the Maple Syrup Capital of Ontario (Lanark) or Haliburton for the Canadian National Pond Hockey Championships. 

Between January 6, 2014 and February 16, 2014, fans of winter will have the opportunity to gear up for a trip to Ontario’s Highlands with a chance to win a $1,000 gift card from Mountain Equipment Co-op.
