Looking for something to keep the kids active while on their Christmas break from school?

Well, we've got some good news.

There's plenty going over the next few weeks to keep everyone happy, healthy and active.

We're pleased to tell you that thanks to our recent snowfall, Searchmont Resort is opening early - Friday, December 20 - and they're bringing back their $9.95 Learn to Ski and Ride package that includes learning centre lift ticket, instruction, and equipment rental.
