Ski Area · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
One of Canada's top cross-country ski resorts, Ski Tuonela offers backcountry/outback skiing over a network of trails, along with equipment rentals and chalet accommodations with a sauna. The log lodge, built in the 1990s, is the perfect place to relax after a day on the snow--you'll enjoy a real fire from a wood burning stove and oil lamps that create that special winter atmosphere. The sauna accommodates up to 4 people and can (as a last resort) double as another chalet with limited cooking facilities. All of the resort's sleeping options are grouped together in a ski village, located at the base of Telemark Hill. Check the website for the area forecast, resort rates, and booking details.
