This was our first time skiing and we had a great time. The discover skiing package was a great option for us. We got a lesson with our children and the teachers were amazing. The encouragement and fun for all made it easy to learn. Even the carpet operator named Sean clearly takes his job seriously but is a very... More

We went a day after freezing rain. Definitely made the hills more interesting. You can tell the staff tried to groom the hills which is a plus. We went for the 3pm-9pm rate, which was great because during the day this hill is infested with children, which I can't really complain about because my first time skiing here was when... More

Excellent customer service. They are a great bunch of people. Resort staff are well trained and respectful. Instructors are superb. Only downside...changerooms a bit stinky....and really more suited for beginners and intermediate skiiers.

Decent hill not too far from the city. Didn't have all the runs open which was disappointing. Better place for beginners, intermediates and families. Bring your own food, cafeteria is overpriced and not very good food.

We went there for the day with visitors from out of town. The kids had so much fun, even though it was freezing. We only went tubing, never being there to ski. The line ups were huge so we were not able to do as many rounds as we would have liked it. Due to the line ups many people... More

We are visiting Toronto and my girls wanted to try skiing. We made the journey up to Barrie to this place. We booked in for a 75 minute lesson and then had the remainder of the day until 9 pm to go on the slopes. What a fantastic day and experience. My girls loved it so much they want to... More

We visited Snow Valley on Dec 27 and Dec 30, 2016. We came up from South Florida and my two children 14 and 10 had never seen snow. We were so glad we chose to come here as we are sure our kids will never forget this experience. It snowed every single day and on the 30th it snowed HEAVY... More

The day of our visit was perfect. The weather conditions could not have been better. The queues were long but understandable as a result of the conditions. The rental process was relatively easy to follow and all the staff were extremely welcoming and friendly. The ski slopes themselves are absolutely the place for beginners. The sloped get increasingly more challenging... More

When my family came to visit this resort not too far from Toronto, we were disappointed. The hills were very icy and ice pieces were found in the middle of black and blue slopes. The space was very crowded because of the limited space in the chalet. The lift took 10 mins., while skiing down took less than 1 minute.... More

Came here for a day of tubing with the family and we were disappointed. The kid zone was reasonable at $7 BUT it was good for 2-3 year olds max. The hill was maybe a meter high. There is no in-between hills for kids under 10. The next level is the extreme drop which was fun but $5 per person... More
