Although we are not breaking any records for total amounts of snowfall, it sure is wintery here. Our snowshoe trails are in excellent condition, as are the cross country, downhill and snowmobile trails. Temperatures have been ideal as well, dipping down to the mid teens at night and then warming during the day. The sun has been shining a lot too as you can see in the photos of Julia and Annie out on the snowshoe trails.
We are around the half way point in our winter and it is about 1.5 months to go before spring. We'll be getting ready for another maple syrup season soon enough.
If you are thinking about a winter visit to Muskoka this is a great time to do it. Family Day is this weekend and then the school spring break in mid March. Looking farther down the road summer is looking quite busy for us. There is still a fairly good selection throughout the summer however this is the time when many of the available cottages get reserved. Our new straw bale cottage, Chinook, is taking shape beautifully and will be ready for bookings starting in June. You can check out our BLOG to see the progress.
