When it snows, why not make for the cross-country ski and snowshoe trails?
According to CBC Sudbury's northern Ontario adventurer Backroads Bill Steer, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing is a limited-time option — and the time to get out is now.
Northeastern Ontario is known for both.
There are hundreds of kilometres of groomed trails for an activity that epitomizes wellness for mind and body, Steer said. There are also back-country trails for the more adventurous explorers.
Northeastern Ontario also has a network of community clubs, Steer added. See his list below.
