With the chill in the air we are faced with the reminder that winter is coming. In our climate we have two choices – we either hibernate all winter or embrace the cold and have some fun. While summer it’s all about swimming in the lake and hanging out at the beach, winter arrival means the best spot to be is the ski hill. It’s time to get prepared for the winter ski and snowboarding season with a trip to the Toronto Snow Show.
