We are ALL about WINTER here in the Georgian Triangle. During the months of January, February, and March you can get your WINTER on! From the amazing outdoor activities, to snow-driven attractions, to warm and cozy spots for fine food and locally crafted beverages, to the boutique shops of our quaint downtowns' of Collingwood, Creemore, Thornbury, Clarksburg, and Meaford.

We have events and winter-inspired entertainment throughout the region. You don't want ot miss out on all this WINTER action!

During the winter months, downhill skiing and snowboarding reign supreme in South Georgian Bay, as it is known as the premier downhill destination in Ontario. With a variety of resorts and terrain parks to choose from, skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels can find their perfect run. For those seeking a more serene winter adventure, cross country skiing and snowshoeing are a great way to experience the region's winter wonderland. With miles of groomed trails and pristine wilderness to explore, Nordic enthusiasts can take in the beauty of the area at a more leisurely pace.

BUT, we are NOT just about skis and boards! The winter heats up in our region with attractions, theatre, tours and events. There is so much to explore and so much fun to be had. Winter may just become your favourite season...
