Georgian Nordic Ski Centre serves the Parry Sound area with a good selection of trails for all Nordic enthusiasts.

The groomed trails have an equal amount of easy to advanced loops that are never crowded, in a very scenic and not too hilly area.

This area of Ontario is open, bare Canadian Shield rock with trees, marshy patches and lakes. In the winter most of this is frozen and covered in snow.

This makes for very scenic trails with some forested treed spots and other open areas where you can see the rolling mounds of stone are snow covered.

Trails take you around and over this terrain which add plenty of variety to the loops.

The local club is very active with grooming, races and lessons. The chalet (Burrow) is warm and has the comforts needed after a long ski.

I noted prices got bumped up quickly but the skiing is still good. In warmer weather, the trails are at risk of getting soggy in the low areas.

The region can get a lot of snow blowing off Georgian Bay, so there is never a shortage.  Take care in driving as the conditions can change quickly.

Snowshoeing can be done on a 4.5 km loop and beyond as there is plenty of open area.
