Bronte Creek Provincial Park is listed for its immediate proximity to a large population. Good for a quick ski, located between Hamilton and Toronto.

The five trails – 13 kms are hiking paths in the summer. Some are out in the open and a few follow the ravine and river.

Currently 5 km are designated for cross-country but you could certainly find more directions to go in.

This area is not an organized ski resort, so those with equipment and a sense of discovery may find it of interest.

Most of the trails are easy and flat. Bronte was a homestead farm and there are still open fields in some spots.

The treed area is around the creek on the east side. It is certainly a large enough park to make your own trails for a few extra kilometers if you are inclined.

Officially there is no mention of snowshoeing, but as a provincial park you can find your own way around and make a day of it.

And there is a toboggan hill too. The ice rink closed due to aging.

Near many amenities to eat and lodge. An easy place to ski if there is a snow base, which being close to the lake is “iffy”some years.
