What a difference a day makes! In just one day we have had over 40 centimeters of snow, of course the groomers have been working overtime to get all of this new snow in great shape for your skiing, snowshoeing, Nordic or boarding pleasure. Conditions couldn’t be better so now is the time to get out there and enjoy all nature has to offer.
With snow conditions being so amazing we have some boarding basics from our boarding Queen, Yolanda Lougheed straight from Whistler.

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching I took a quick trip to Aarden’s Chocolates in Stayner. They have a wonderful array of chocolate temptations for your sweetie. Even if you have other things planned…there’s nothing like a thoughtful token that shows you have gone for quality…because she’s worth it.
There are many Valentine themed events going on in the Georgian Triangle, so be sure to check our Events Calendar for a listing of dances and dinner specials. The Wasaga Beach RecPlex is hosting a Valentine’s Youth Dance, the Marsh Street Centre in Carksburg is also having a dance and many of our area restaurants like Fitzgerald’s on the Pond, Mary’s, Copper Blues and Firehall Pizza have special menus for the evening. Remember that Fitzgerald’s on the Pond has supervised child care if you can’t get a sitter, but be sure to call ahead and let them know. Just hours before sending this email we received The Craigleith General Store & Restaurant Valentine’s menu.
