When the flakes fly, Hamilton Halton Brant writes a whole new chapter in our outdoor adventure story. There’s downhill skiing, snowboarding and tubing down the Niagara Escarpment for those seeking a chilly thrill. If snowy solitude is more your thing, miles of cross-country ski and snowshoe trails await. Rental equipment, lessons and guided experiences at the region’s many conservation areas make it easy and incredibly affordable to try a new snow sport. Join us and experience a way more fun side of winter.
