If ungroomed trails are more to your liking (most serve as hiking/ mountain biking paths during the rest of the year) several nearby areas offer FREE skiing in beautiful forest surroundings.
Snowshoeing has been growing in popularity as a great form of exercise for people of all ages. Strap on some snowshoes and you're on your way - over hill or dale. Snowshoes can be rented from many retailers in the Collingwood area; Mary can recommend some.
Tobogganing with a little more speed than you remember - up to 60 km/hr on the groomed tracks. Located at the south end of Blue Mountain, TubeTown offers fun for everyone. Cost of a ride includes the use of an inner tube and a lift to the top. Those too timid to tube can enjoy a hot chocolate or a hot dog next to a big fire near the end of the ride.
Another Canadian tradition. Rob Roy's Petting farm offers hourly and 1/2-day dogsledding adventures, just a short drive from Blue.
