We are so very looking forward to free-heeling and being back out on the snow, carving turns for the 2021-22 season! The Farmer’s Almanac predicts a great winter!!!

The annual Ski Telemark Warm-up Day will be on Saturday, December 11th  at Mt. St. Louis Moonstone Resort. 

For the 2022 season:

  • Free-Heel Fridays are planned for Mt. St. Louis Moonstone Resort.
  • Our City Ski 8 Week Program at Earl Bales Ski & Snowboard Centre on Wednesday evenings is being planned.
  • Our Weekend Program is set!
    • Although, we are looking forward to resuming our regular Instruction & Equipment Rentals for 2021-22, we will be following whatever Covid-19 restrictions are in place in the province and at the resorts.
  • All our CANSI certified instructors are double vaxxed for your safety. See you at the Warm-Up Day on December 11th!

Til December, be well, keep safe!!!!

Explore Ontario’s best powder with WWHSTA

Wait, what?

Tree skiing powder snow in central Ontario?

You bet there is! 

The West Wind Highlands Ski Touring Association (WWHSTA) is a registered not-for-profit association formed in 2020 to advocate for and support the development of self-propelled winter backcountry touring opportunities in Muskoka, the Almaquin Highlands, Haliburton and surrounding areas. 

Our group embraces the enjoyment of the deep snowpack brought to our region by the west winds off Georgian Bay. The region’s wonderful open hardwood forests and the undulating topography offers a beautiful canvas for exploration and, every now and then,  a few turns of pure joy.

If you enjoy winter in Ontario on AT gear, telemark skis, a snowboard or nordic backcountry gear, WWHSTA is a group that will introduce you to a new community, new areas, shared information and learning opportunities.

Gord Baker and Jeff Edwards are long-time tele skiers and WWHSTA board members. They will be on hand to share information about equipment, locations and how to get involved with WWHSTA.

For more information on WWHSTA activities and membership, visit http://wwhsta.org/ and find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/wwhsta.
