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.
