Holiday Activities

Walking, skating, sledding and skiing in a winter wonderland.

Journey into a winter wonderland with trees draped in white, sparkling in the sun as the powdery path leads you on an alpine adventure. Dash through the snow on sleds, skis or shoes. No matter the destination you seek, our Winter Activity Centre has everything you’ll need to make it by ice, snow or slope. Dance on glass lakes and twirl around in the most picturesque 360 degree snowy peaks, seen from our naturally groomed rink. Lose track of time in activities the entire family will enjoy or spend some one-on-one time with loved ones. Your white Christmas awaits you.
