All of our attractions are open for you to enjoy, and our calendar is stocked with incredible events you won’t want to miss. The moderate weather is ideal for exploring our extensive hiking trail network, and the links are pristine for a fantastic round of golf.

Feel the wind in your hair on our popular Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster, or test your bravery on the Timber Challenge High Ropes Course. A classic that everyone will love is a ride on our Open Air Gondola where you’ll enjoy stellar views of Georgian Bay from the summit of our slopes. Are you having trouble deciding which attractions to do? Why not try them all?  With our Play All Day Getaway Package you’ll enjoy unlimited play time during your stay.
