Why choose a trail at Horseshoe Resort?

Horseshoe Resort, formerly Horseshoe Valley Ski Club, is a southern Ontario ski resort and four season vacation destination. Located north of Barrie, the resort is about 1 hour 15 minutes driving time from Toronto. The resort enjoys a long ski season due to snow making abilities. Acquired by Skyline International Development Inc. in July 2007, Horseshoe Resort is spread out over 680 acres of land. The resort offers two award-winning golf courses, a full-service Shizen Spa, 101 rooms at the on-site Inn and 40 condo-style suites, two year-round restaurants, 11,400 square feet of meeting and banquet facilities, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a full gym and over 40 km of trails connected to the Copeland Forest suitable for hiking, biking and snowshoeing. The resort is known for its multitude of four season activities including on-site Treetop Trekking, Yamaha Riding Adventures, Segway Adventures, horseback and pony rides, Hummer tours, mountain biking, snow tubing, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing and more. An Adventure Park includes family-friendly activities such as a rock climbing wall, Ogo run (similar to zorbing), Red Horse Maze, Red Horse Mining attraction, Euro bungy and zip line. Horseshoe Valley is the area between a horseshoe-shaped series of hills with the open ends of the U facing north. Horseshoe Valley Road runs through the middle of the hills, cutting its northern ends off from the base of the U on the south side of the road. The club was originally started by Bill Lohuaru on the southern side of the road.

Horseshoe Resort is a great place to go cross-country skiing. There are plenty of trails to choose from, and the scenery is beautiful. The trails are well groomed, and there are plenty of hills and curves to keep things interesting. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the resort has a warm lodge with a fireplace where you can take a break from skiing.

This is one of the greatest resorts in the country. For someone who travels weekly, I am so looking forward to my next trip. The staff is great, the location is awesome, the views are perfect. A ton of activities and things to see and do. The food is great as well. You must place "mini" golf, and please walk around as much as you can you will not be able to see it all in one visit. Access to the water is great.
