Thunder Bay Youth Winter Activities

Thunder Bay's winterís are typical for Canada, with the "lake effect" keeping them somewhat mild, yet allowing a lot of snow to fall. Barring unusual cold spells, there is enough snow to make snow forts, toboggan and cross-country ski in the city. Here are a couple of winter suggestions:

  1. Skate outdoors Many communities maintain outdoor rinks, but you can also visit the more scenic outdoor rinks (no hockey sticks):
  2. Take a hike along Thunder Bay's recreational paths & trails. They're especially pretty with fresh snow on the ground. The most scenic are:
  3. Go tobogganning at the various hills in the area:
    • Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park
  4. Go Snowmobiling

  5. Go cross-country skiing
  6. Head out of town The countryside around Sudbury has some winter wonderlands with lots of snow, including around Lake Nipissing, and on scenic Manitoulin Island
  7. Enjoy the holiday light displays In December each year, there are several popular holiday light displays downtown.
  8. Go skiing at a number of nearby ski hills, including Mount Baldy (to the city's north, on Highway 527) and Loch Lomond Ski Area (south of town, off Hihgway 11)
