Horseshoe Valley: More Than Just A Community - It's a Lifestyle!

Blog by Robert & Matthew Johnston | November 9th, 2015


For decades skiers have made the drive "up the 400" to hit the slopes of Horseshoe Resort. With winter just around the corner, there is no doubt avid skiers are anxiously waiting for the first snow.

Although renowned for skiing, Horseshoe Valley is so much more than a winter destination. Just a short drive from the city of Barrie, Horseshoe Valley, located in Oro-Medonte, offers world class, all season, recreational activities that are perfect for the whole family. 

In addition to skiing, winter activities include tubing, snowshowing, skating, snowmobiling and fat biking. The "mini-sled" program is a great way to introduce your children to snowmobiling and there's no better way to spend the day than exploring the trails that surround you.  Of course there's nothing wrong with just sipping a hot chocolate at the resort or de-stressing in the tranquil oasis of relaxation that is the Shizen Spa.

Summer activities are just as plentiful! Spend a day at the Horseshoe Adventure Park, experience tree top trekking, explore the trails in a Hummer, on a mountain bike or Segway. The nearby Copeland Forest is a nature lover's paradise and perfect for both beginner and experienced hikers.  Horseshoe is also one of Ontario's top golf destinations with two distinctly different 18 hole courses on site, and several others closeby.  From sweet treats, to comfort food to fine dining, Horseshoe offers a wide variety of dining options to suit any pallette; the perfect way to end a fun-filled day.
