Families with children and anyone who just wants to get the party started early can kick off their New Year’s Eve celebrations at Hidden Valley Highlands Ski Area (HVHSA) this Sunday at their annual family-friendly fireworks.
The fireworks launch at 6:00 p.m. and there will be live music from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. with free cookies and hot chocolate starting at 5:00 (while supplies last). The bar closes at 8:00 p.m. You’ll be home in plenty of time to get the kiddos to bed or head off to ring in the new year at midnight somewhere else.
The new year fun doesn’t stop there, though. Coming up at HVHSA early in 2018:
World Snow Day on January 21 will include Canada Ski Council’s attempt to host the world’s largest beginner snow lesson. It’s part of their Never Ever Days program, which get brand-new skiers a lift ticket, rentals, and a lesson for just $25. Advance registration via nevereverdays.com is required. “It’s going to be awesome. Come out and give it a shot!” says HVHSA’s Communications and Marketing Manager Courtney Payne, adding that there will likely be a second Never Ever Day later in the season, too.
Locals can take advantage of the new Muskoka Locals card when they hit the slopes in the new year for discounted rates and free lift tickets.
And come out and cheer on some of Ontario’s best young freestyle skiers when the Timber Tour makes its return to the Muskoka Ski Club from January 19 to 21.
