Winter Fun in Muskoka

"Voted One of the Best Winter Resorts" by City Parent readers 2014.

This winter, escape to Deerhurst and give your free time a real lift. Friendly Hidden Valley Highlands Ski Area is just 5 minutes away, and 2000 km of groomed snowmobile trails beckon for adventure. Deerhurst’s winter wonderland is packed with outdoor fun, from ice skating to snowshoeing, and sleigh rides to dogsledding. Then warm up by a fireplace, sample some sizzling cuisine, or unwind at the Shizen Spa.  

All activities are dependent on weather, snow or ice conditions and are usually available late December through mid-March

Snowshoeing | Cross-Country Skiing | Ice-Skating

Strap on rental equipment from our convenient new Winter Adventures HQ and enjoy use of Deerhurst’s onsite trails and outdoor rinks - all included in your resort fee.

For even more variety, explore excellent trails at nearby Arrowhead Provincial Park and Algonquin Provincial Park, as well as a 1.5 km skating trail at Arrowhead (see details below). See details below.


Downhill Skiing | Snowboarding

Hidden Valley Highlands Ski Area, next door to Deerhurst, takes pride in its friendly atmosphere and short line-ups. With 12 slopes, three quad chair lifts and a handle bar tow, it is an ideal location for families and for those who want to learn.


Dog-Sled Rides

Experience the Arctic thrill of dog-sledding on guided rides at the Deerhurst stable. Kids will love driving their own pint-size sled on “Chili-Doggin” rides!  Please note: the dogs take Wednesdays off for a well earned rest.
