Another great day at this amazing hill. Snow conditions were optimal - it's got a much better consistency and feels like the real thing. No ice, no chunks, just good old fashioned snow. On top of that, the place is well-run, it's not ridiculously difficult...More

A nice, small little ski area, only 15minutes from downtown Ottawa. Worth a visit. Probably a half day lift pass is sufficient as the there are limited runs. Great for beginners.

I got a Groupon for the 3-hour zip lining adventure, and my boyfriend and I had a lot of fun. The obstacle course is tricky and you will need some upper body strength. The staff were very friendly and helped us along the way.

Do you know what the smoking policy is? We will be going to a wedding there this year and are hoping that they don't allow smoking around the building as someone in our party has allergies.
