6 Things You Have To Do in Barrie Before Winter is Gone

5 Things You Have To Do in Barrie Before Winter is Gone


Winter in Barrie is almost over (praise be) but the final mile is always the longest. And with storm level snow coming this week, we are in definite need of some distractions from the ice and wind over the next few weeks.

Luckily there are plenty of events, places and happenings to check out before Spring arrives on March 19th.


6 Things You Have To Do in Barrie Before Winter is Gone



The 1km loop skate trail is open Tuesdays and Thursdays every weekend while the weather permits. It takes the skaters around the heritage buildings and through the scenic forest path surrounding the museum. Grab a hot chocolate, load up the fam jam and glide through the trail before it melts.



Horseshoe Resort and Snow Valley are just a few of the nearby locales where you can rent snow shoes and traverse the snowy wilderness. You can make a weekend out of it at both and try your hand (or foot) at skiing while you’re there, with hills and trails for both downhill and cross country.



Be honest…one of your #lifegoals is to stand behind a dog sled and yell “mush!” at the top of your lungs. (No judgement)

You can experience this unique winter adventure and explore Barrie’s snowy countryside on pristine trails through local kennels, including Winddrift. During the tours there is time to stop and enjoy the scenery, as well as warm drinks and snacks along the way. If you do the full day experience, you’ll be treated to a hot chili lunch.



The boys of winter are creeping up in the standings and there are still a few home games left before the season wraps. The in game experience is always amazing, and includes lots of giveaways.



If you haven’t already, grab a java from one of the great local cafes and take a stroll through downtown. The festival of lights around Heritage park goes until the end of winter, and you can end off the walk with a warm up at outdoor fire pits.
