Dagmar is the closest Nordic ski location on the eastside of Toronto. If the snow is there it has been a great place to ski but not so much now. Just this season they have reduced the trails from 20 km to 4 km and the price is the same!? So heads up, seasoned skiers who are thinking of going.

What was once a decent spot worth driving to is now questionable. The hours are reduced, the snack bar is gone and so are the long advanced runs. The north trails and meadow trails are closed.

The downhill skiing is their main focus ($$) and little mention on their website anymore for Nordic skiing. Rather sad, and having little snow the last few years has not helped.

If you go, expect short loops that you may do twice. The new map has 2 new advanced trails but they too will be over in no time. Perhaps more suited for beginners, but still the rates for a trails pass and gear rentals is high. Amenities are bare bones and you would be better served to head over to the downhill chalet for eats.

Always wanting to promote any ski spot, it’s hard to recommend this new format. I hope one day it will return to its former glory….let’s hope.
