So we have been waiting for that fluffy white stuff to arrive and I think it is finally here. Sure you could take that as time for to hibernate inside or you can decide to love this crazy Canuck weather and go out in the cold. My goal espcially after the extreme cold temperatures last year is to get out and enjoy winter while it is here.
If you can’t beat it, join it!
Canadian winters are a beautiful time to enjoy outdoor and fun activities together as a family!
So, here it is! The Winter Activity Round-Up for 2015-2016 which includes: sledding, skiing, and skating – all found in the Guelph Region!
