Get Out And Enjoy Winter’s Last Gasp

But if you are a winter lover, the season’s impending demise means you are on the clock to get cold weather fun in before Spring’s arrival.
Luckily there are plenty of events, places and happenings to check out!
6 Things To Do in Barrie Before Winter is Gone
Both city-operated rinks are open, with a few restrictions in place. It’s all free, so all you need is your skates and helmets.
If you’re keen for a road trip, try one or two of the cool outdoor trails around the region.
Horseshoe Resort, Blue Mountain 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.
HAVE A LOW KEY HANG AT MERIDIAN PLACE
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 at the chic art exhibits scattered through the area.
Barrie’s OHL club is home on the 10th and 12th this month, and with capacity limits lifted, it’s (almost) back to normal at the Sadlon arena.
The season only has a month and a half left, so if you want to get in before the playoffs, now’s the time.
