As warm fall days and frosty fall nights turn into a winter wonderland of snowflakes and fresh powder, it is once again time to dust off your ski and snowboard gear, grab the family and head to the slopes. But, this season, instead of turning your sights north, consider a short trip, less than one hour east of Toronto, to the slopes of Brimacombe.

Nestled in the drumlins of Clarington, Brimacombe is one of Southern Ontario’s hidden gems, representing one of the area’s largest ski and snowboard facilities, and offering families a great alternative to the traditional ski drive up Highway 400.

Spread over more than 60 skiable acres, Brimacombe features 21 trails and 9 lifts, including a Magic Carpet in the beginner area. Those family members craving an added dose of exhilaration can test their skills in the bumps or check out the jumps, boxes and rails in one of Brimacombe’s two terrain parks.

Visitors can also enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in one of two warm chalets overlooking the Oak Ridges Moraine, as well as the convenience of an on-site snow school, rental facility and Brimacombe’s Slopeside retail store. Whatever your needs — from lift tickets and lessons, to rentals and retail, to food and family time — Brimacombe has your family covered this winter!
