Looking for a little speed? Two downhill ski areas can be found in the Parkland.
Asessippi Ski Area and Winter Park, nestled deep in the Shell River Valley near Inglis, offers 25 runs for downhill skiing and snowboarding, with half-pipe and two terrain parks. There are three chair lifts, one quad, two triple lifts, three surface tows and one snow carpet. The winter park offers three downhill snowtubing runs (ride up and slide down — no effort required!). With its charming winter village, the resort was the recipient of the Best New Attraction 2000 by Attractions Canada.
Thunder Hill Ski Club & Lodge offers downhill runs of varying difficulty, t-bar access, cross-country ski trails, and ski rentals.
