We ski and snowboard at destinations within a 2-3-hour drive from Toronto. All offer a full range of facilities, rentals and a cafeteria for lunch and drinks. To learn more about where we go, click here.
Our daytrips are for both skiers and snowboarders, as you can do both sports at all the resorts we visit. There are many members who enjoy both throughout the season and for those who want to try out a different sport, we offer cross over days too.
The cost of a trip depends on where and when we go, as each resort sets their own lift pass costs. The cost of the coach remains constant so this is why you'll see a difference. To see a cost comparison between travelling with us or going on your own, visit our Downhill Day Trips page.
Our pickup points are;
To make it easier to find these locations, we've created a map to show you exactly where to wait for the bus.

If you can’t make the trip you’ve booked, you can cancel by sending us an email. Please read over the Downhill Cancellation Policy which provides the details, rules and process for doing so.
When checking the trip status, you will notice that some trips allow “walk ons”. We always encourage members to register for the trip online before the deadline as we have to order buses and Snow School has to match instructors to expected demand. But we sometimes find ourselves with some extra seats on the bus. Those seats are offered to members at the same prices as for online registration and members literally walk on to the bus and pay for the trip in cash (exact change would be great).
If there is room on the bus for walk-ons, the prices will be posted on the trip status page. We'll also let you know if you can walk at any pickup location or only the last location at Highways 7 and 400. If you do walk on when there is no space on the bus, you will be asked to leave the bus before we depart the Highways 7 and 400 location. Sorry but we can't have members standing on the bus for health and safety reasons.
There’s no need for expensive, fancy ski clothes your first time skiing/boarding. Raid your closet first and when you fall in love with skiing or boarding, you can upgrade your wardrobe. Here’s a handy list to get you started.
Base-layer This is the layer worn next to your skin and keeps you warm, dry and comfortable.
Middle Layer This middle or “insulating” layer is to keep heat in and cold out.
Exterior Layer The exterior or “protection” layer protects you from the elements and should repel water and block the wind.
Socks We recommend one purchase: A good pair of ski socks that can cost around $30. Ski socks will wick away sweat and are made to minimize rubbing so you don’t get blisters. There is no cotton in ski socks. They are usually a blend of synthetic materials and wool.
Important tip: do not double-up on socks. Not only could it limit circulation to your feet (making your feet colder), but it may cause your socks to bunch up and cause blisters.
