Dehli Park Snow Hill

Grab the sleds and hit the snow hill overlooking Delhi Park in Picton. Good old fashioned (free) family fun! Hot chocolate at the Bean Counter is a nice way to warm up afterwards (park in the free lot off Mary Street at the end of Elizabeth).

Guided Ice Fishing

Family fun for fishing lovers. Stay a weekend in a cabin and enjoy heated ice huts while out fishing.  Check out Sunset Cabins website.

Public Skating at the Wellington Arena

Nothing spells winter like “ice rink”.  Great way to connect with the local community and with family and friends. Hot Chocolate, fries… make sure the canteen is going to be open before making dinner plans there 😉 If it’s not, you can always try the Duke of Wellington Restaurant at the end of Belleville Street on the water.

If you don’t make it to the Wellington Arena for the free skate on Saturday night, try Picton from 1-3 on Sundays.

Cross-country Skiing at Sandbanks

10 kms of groomed trails await you at Sandbanks Provincial Park. Park in the free parking lot next to Dunes beach and head into the woods. Ski all the way to Lake Ontario! Click Prince Edward County ski trails for more info!

Holiday Ski Camp at Batawa (March Break)
