Tobogganing Fun in Muskoka
Tobogganing is the quintessential winter experience in Canada, a beloved family pastime for generations. Many of us look back fondly on childhood memories of sliding down a snowy slope on a beautiful winter’s day. The thrill of the downhill and the cold breeze on your face as you whiz by your surroundings. The burning sensation in your legs as you climb back up to the top of the summit. The sense of accomplishment as you reach the top, and seconds later hopping back on the sled for another rush. The icing on the cake was always the quality family time after a day on the slopes, warming up with a rich and creamy hot chocolate.
Now, more than ever, it is important to continue these traditions with the next generation. With so many forms of entertainment that might keep kids indoors and glued to media devices, we need to have our youngsters experience the great outdoors in its purest form.
Muskoka still appreciates tobogganing, and what it means to families. Kerr Park in Bracebridge has a designated sliding hill that is popular among locals, and Arrowhead Provincial Park has a tubing hill that is fun and safe for all ages (please follow the posted signs at these locations). The following resorts even offer tobogganing to their overnight guests.
Certain things are a part of our Canadian heritage and are meant to celebrated, not banned. Tobogganing, is one of those things!
