Here are some of the questions we are asked most often:
No, unless you are a group of 15 or more, you do not need to reserve rentals. We have a range of sizes starting at a children’s size 8 shoe going up to an adult size 15. We are able to accommodate 100 kids and their parents at one time.
We have programs starting at age 4 (Ski Programs), although as soon as a child is comfortable walking you can most likely put them on skis. We have boot sizes down to size 8. If their feet are smaller we have “The Party Skis” that you can strap onto their feet.
We also have pulks (baby gliders) available to rent if you have a really little person.
When you are getting ready for cross country skiing or snowshoeing you want to think layers. You may start off a little cold, but trust me you are going to warm up in a hurry. It is still very important to wear a hat and mitts, because that is where most of your heat escapes. Try to avoid wear cotton as a base layer, since they will hold in moisture and make you cold; where polyester or wool will push away that moisture. Always remember to bring water to drink. It’s important to stay hydrated.
Unfortunately we are not open to the public for mountain biking or hiking. We have our annual Spring and Fall hikes that anyone can come and participate in.
We are located in Duntroon, 15 minutes south of Collingwood, an hour and a half to 2 hours from Toronto. Type in Highlands Nordic Inc, Duntroon, ON into Google Maps for accurate directions. Map Quest will not take you to the correct location.
No, we do not allow dog on our trails. Unfortunately dogs leave too much damage on our trails.
We can try! Bring them in and we will give you an honest answer. It is most likely a small fix.
Yes, we do. Just give us a call to book a time and an instructor. We can arrange a lesson for any level of skier from beginner to advance. Any children under 16 must be accompanied by a paying adult for the lesson.
We accept Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Debit and Cash.
We have a cafeteria where you can purchase drinks, homemade goods and lunch items, such as soup and sandwiches.
We do suggest that you keep in valuables locked in your car. We do have cubbies and you can leave items in the Boxlunch Room. We do not have any lockers.
You are able to change in the washrooms. We also have a showers to use for $2.
Yes, we can. Although you will have to leave the skis with us for a couple days for us to complete them.
