The Best Winter Activities in London

With the cold and the snow on your doorstep, it’s often the impulse to stay inside, huddled under a blanket with a hot cup of tea, re-watching The Office, Friends, or whatever your sitcom of choice may be. Well, just because the temperature has dropped doesn’t mean the city of London has stopped with fun and exciting activities for you or the family!

With cold weather and blankets of snow covering the ground comes a whole new set of activities that you can’t enjoy any other time of the year. Just around the house, you get to build a snowman in your front yard, adorn every nook and cranny with festive décor, and put out milk and cookies for jolly old Saint Nick.

But there’s so much more to do outside your home and around the city of London. All you’ve got to do is brave the cold, get outside, and enjoy some of these awesome winter activities!

Best Winter Activities - Boler Mountain

Boler Mountain is the destination for outdoor excitement all year round. In the summer, there’s hiking and mountain biking trails, the Treetop Adventure Park, and an 1100-foot zipline! But the fun doesn’t stop when the snow starts to fall, it gets even better. When the mountain transforms from green to white, you know it’s time to break out the skis and snowboards.

Boler Mountain has over a dozen trails for skiing or snowboarding down the mountain. They range from green circle (the easiest) to black diamond (the hardest). You have the opportunity to bring your own equipment, or you can rent a set of theirs. Grab a day pass, or if you’re really dedicated to sliding down hills, a season pass for you or even the whole family!

If you’re new to downhill winter sports and looking to learn, they’ve got programs for everyone from age 5 to adults. Classes are divided by age, but they also offer private lessons if you’re interested in one-on-one attention to really speed up your learning process.

Boler Mountain even offers a freestyle ski and snowboard program for youths aged 8 to 13. Your child can learn how to handle jumps and bumps. To participate, your child should already have strong skiing or snowboarding skills since they jump right into the terrain, and won’t be going over the basics.

Skiing and snowboarding aren’t the only downhill winter activities at Boler Mountain though, there’s also tubing. For the uninitiated, tubing is when you sit in the middle of a big rubber donut and hurtle yourself down a hill. Boler Mountain’s tube runs are 10 stories tall, and you’re able to reach speeds of up to 70 kilometres per hour, which means you’re going nearly double the speed limit of a school zone!

Your $20 (plus tax) tubing ticket lasts for two hours. On average, that means you’ll get to ride down the hill somewhere between 4 and 8 times, depending on how busy it is.

Best Winter Activities - Tree Lane Farms

With winter comes Christmas, and with Christmas comes a Christmas Tree. Sure, you could haul your who-knows-how-many-years-old fake tree out of storage again, or you could pack your family into the car and head out to Tree Lane Farms in Ilderton!

Tree Lane Farms has 110 acres of land that are entirely dedicated to growing Christmas trees. That’s right, they’ve got over 40,000 trees waiting to be taken home by a family such as yours! They’ve got pre-cuts if you’re just looking to grab one and go, but Tree Lane Farms has prepared an amazing Christmas experience if you stay and explore!

Of course, the main goal is to get a tree. If you’ve elected to get a U-Cut tree, you can head out into their forest and peruse the selection, rows upon rows of evergreens. They’ve got white spruce, white pine, and blue spruce to pick from. Bring your own saw or borrow one of theirs, but absolutely no chainsaws are allowed. You and your family cut your selected tree down, and then you can get it shaken and wrapped for easy transport home.

Need some decorations for that tree? Head to their Christmas store for any festive décor that you could ever need. Tree toppers, ornaments, and tree skirts are all available to make your tree even prettier once you get it home. They’ve also got other holiday-themed items like stockings, mugs, pillows, signs, and so much more!

On the grounds, there are even more activities that Tree Lane Farms provides. On weekends, wagon rides take you to and from the tree field. Cozy up to the community campfire, or find one of their smaller, more private firepits to share with friends and family. Grab a hot drink and a Fritter Shop fritter. You can even meet one of Santa’s reindeer, Prancer!

Picking and cutting your own Christmas tree is an awesome winter activity for the entire family, and Tree Lane Farms makes it even sweeter with the added holiday cheer. Want to hear from the owners themselves? Check out our Business of the Week we did with them here!

Ski and Snowshoe Around
Circle R Ranch

Best Winter Activities - Circle R Ranch

You may know the Circle R Ranch for their awesome horseback riding lessons and trail rides through the spring and the fall, and sleepaway camps in the summer. But when the temperature drops and the snow falls, Circle R Ranch becomes the place to go in and around London for cross country skiing and snowshoeing!

The ranch offers 13 kilometres of trails that have been groomed and tracked to make for skiing perfection. There are six different paths to choose from, each with their own distance and difficulty level.

The Sugarbush is the easiest trail to take, and is only 1.3 kilometres, perfect for a beginner-level skier or just a nice leisurely ski.

The two most difficult trails are Tuckerman and Skating. Tuckerman is a 5 kilometre loop for classic-style cross country skiing. The Skating trail, however, is designed for skating-style skiing, which requires shorter skis, a skating-like motion of the feet, and no poles. The Skating trail is also 5 kilometres long.

Meanwhile, the snowshoe trail is 4 kilometres long.

For something extra special, sign up for one of the Moonlight Ski & Snowshoe Dinner events! You are treated to a dinner of homemade chili (either con carne or vegetarian), cold and hot beverages, a salad bar, and dessert. After your meal, you head out for either a ski or a snowshoe adventure under the stars. The winter night is peaceful and serene, something that can be hard to come by in the city. Any level of skier or snowshoer is welcome to sign up, and you can even rent equipment there if you don’t have your own!

Circle R Ranch is a reminder that the cold weather doesn’t mean you should stay inside! Cross country skiing and snowshoeing at Circle R Ranch makes for a fun and physical day to keep your activity and spirits high in the winter!

Best Winter Activities - Heeman's Workshops

There’s buying Christmas decorations and then there’s making your own. Head out to Heeman’s in Thorndale to participate in one of their incredible workshops that let you create your own Christmas décor.

The daymakers at Heeman’s will walk you, your friends, and your family through making one of their amazing centerpieces with real plants! Make a wreath, decorate a boxwood tree, or even recreate the tree from the Grinch!

They will provide just about everything required to make your centerpiece. You aren’t required to bring extra materials or equipment in order to make your decoration. However, if you’ve got a favourite pair of pruning shears or gloves, then you are more than welcome to bring them along! If not, they will be provided for you.

Make sure you book yourself a spot ahead of time, because spaces are limited, and you don’t want to get left out in the cold!

Attending a Heeman’s workshop allows you to both celebrate the joys of winter and avoid the horrors of its weather, the best kind of winter activity if you ask me.

Best Winter Activities - London Knights

Hockey is a winter sport, there’s no doubt about it. Even though Budweiser Gardens is air conditioned, there’s still something extra winter-y about cheering for the London Knights.

The 2018-19 season started in early September and continues to roar on through December and into March. Check out their schedule to find out exactly when they’ll be playing at Bud Gardens and grab a ticket for you and some friends or family. Engage in the raucous chant of “GO KNIGHTS GO” every time one of our players touches a puck and scream your heart out when they get a shot past the opposing goalie.

And if you should happen to be hungry on your way to the game, definitely check out last week’s Best Of to find out the best places you should eat before the Knights game.

Best Winter Activities - Victoria Park

Come winter, Victoria Park transforms into a winter wonderland. Festive lights shine bright through the whole park, washing the white snow in neon colours. It’s a wonder to walk through in the evening (or the afternoon since the sun goes down so early nowadays), and enjoy the holiday spirit and gorgeous lightshow.

In front of the bandshell, a skating rink is installed. It’s absolutely free to skate there anytime from 10 AM to 10 PM every day. The only time you can’t skate during this time is between 5:30 PM and 6:30 PM, when they’re resurfacing the ice. As long as the weather is agreeable, the rink is open from early December all the way through until the end of March Break.

If you don’t have skates of your own, you can rent some for just $7 on weekdays from 5 PM to 10 PM, and noon to 10 PM on weekends. Or if the skates you own need to be sharpened, they’ve got you covered as well for just $6.

They offer a winding trail of ice for skating six days of the week from December until the end of February (weather permitting). Practice your skating on something more exciting you’re your standard square or oval rink! There’s even a rink-side Beavertails location! Grab a hot chocolate and a fresh beavertail before or after your skate, and you’re in for a wonderful day.

Storybook Gardens transforms into Snowybook Village from December 22nd to January 5th. The village offers extra skating hours, special holiday lights and décor, mascot meet and greets, and campfire programming to keep you warm during all of it!

There’s even a New Year’s Eve party, or a “hoopla” as they call it. They do the countdown at 8:30 so your little ones still get to experience the fun and excitement of ringing in the new year, without staying up way past their bed time. The festivities also include crafts, skating, and a campfire. You must pre-register in order to get tickets for this event though, so pick them up soon!

Building Amenities

The condo lifestyle is not just about worry-free home ownership. It’s not just about having the joy of a beautiful home that is landscaped and luxurious without worrying about shoveling, mowing, and raking, or any kind of general home maintenance and upkeep. It’s not just about having the luxury of being able to travel whenever you want for however long you want without the need of finding someone to watch your house while you’re gone. It’s also about the amenities that fit with your lifestyle.

NorthCliff - Building Amenities

The amenities that NorthCliff offers are an extension of your home. They make entertaining a breeze. They’re also great for having an active social lifestyle. The amenity rooms become the “neighborhood” of your building where you can meet and connect with your neighbors. They become another part of your home that you can relax and be entertained in.

NorthCliff’s building amenities include the following:

On-site Management

Full time on-site management are there to keep the place looking amazing and to help you and your guests feel welcomed. They’re also there in case any issues may arise.

Gym

When it comes to your physical health, we all know the stats: we should aim for 30 minutes of physical activity every day. But of course, with our busy lives it can be hard to find the time to hit the gym. Or maybe the idea of going to a busy, public gym is just a major turn off. Luckily, a modern gym is included in the amenities of NorthCliff. You’ll be able to get in some cardio or weight training in the comfort of your own building. Fitting in a quick workout can’t get any easier.

Library

Sometimes you just need a place for peace and quiet. You need a space that is tranquil and elegant with amazing seating so that you can cozy in with a really good book and ease away the stresses of the day and lose yourself into the written words.

Theater Room

A large screen, big comfy chairs, amazing sound system, and ambient lighting: is there anything else that movie buffs need in their lives? I don’t think so. The theater room is a great place to watch your favorites. It’s also a great place to host a movie night with your friends. You can pretend you’re having a night at the movies without ever having to leave home (and without paying an arm and a leg for concession snacks).

Social Room

The social room is a gorgeous space with comfortable steading and great lighting. It’s a space to meet up with your neighbors and have wonderful conversations. It’s also a great additional space to bring guests if you’re hosting a get together and want to get out of your space for a bit.

Patio

A beautiful patio gives a great space to enjoy the sunshine and great weather. Have “backyard” bbqs and summer mixers on the beautiful and well maintained patio. Between the patio and your large balcony, you won’t miss having a backyard at all!

Billiards Room

Pool is a wonderful, social game that can be anywhere from casual to straight up competitive. You can connect with your neighbours over a game of pool. Or you can bring your guests down for a friendly game if you’re hosting. The room is spacious and beautifully decorated.

Northcliff - Features

Underground Parking

Underground parking makes rainy and snowy days that much easier. When you don’t have to scrape off piles of snow and ice off of your car in the early morning, or when you don’t have to make a mad dash to your car to avoid getting soaked in the rain, you’ll be so thankful for underground parking that keeps your car safe from people and from Canadian weather.

Guest Suite

If you’re hosting overnight guests, you’ll be happy to know that NorthCliff has guests suites available to rent. These suites ensure that both you and your guests get a comfortable night’s sleep. You can meet up in the morning at your own time for brunch the next day. It can help you be a responsible host for those who might otherwise drink and drive. Plus, you won’t have to worry about how comfortable your couch is or if your guest snores loudly. Basically, a separate guest suite is definitely the way to go for overnight guests.

Security

Controlled entry, cameras and a state-of-the-art security system can help you have peace of mind both when you’re at home and away from home.

Storage Locker

The truth of the matter is that most of the time we have more stuff than can fit into our apartments. We have seasonal things that we don’t use all-year round and we just need a space to keep things safe and secure until we need them again. NorthCliff has got you covered there as well. They have storage lockers available for residents to keep your belongings secured, but out of the way, which really beats having to pay for storage units somewhere else in the city.

Location

You know what they say about real estate, the most important factor is location, location, location. Well NorthCliff is in an incredible location. The Hyde Park location is a booming location. While we can all probably remember back when it was a rural area, it has been developed with thriving commercial areas, incredible shopping districts, a ton of delicious restaurant choices, and multiple pockets of new-build neighborhoods.

NorthCliff’s building is tucked away from the busy main roads in an adorable residential area, but is still just very close to Hyde Park road and Gainsburough road so that you have access to the main streams through London. Right around the building is beautiful green spaces and it’s close to multiple parks. Right across from the building is Unger’s Market, which has an incredible bakery, delicious meals, as well as incredible produce and meats. If you have not checked it out yet, you really should.

The Renaissance

The Renaissance

When it comes to renting in London Ontario, a lot of people are discovering the incredible difference of choosing high-rise buildings that are modern, have added conveniences, and are filled with the luxury details of high-end living. For those who are looking for this kind of living, The Renaissance, by Tricar, is the perfect choice.

It’s conveniently located on the corner of King and Ridout in downtown, which means that it’s right in the heart of incredible nightlife, amazing restaurants, world class entertainment, beautiful parks, and the core of London’s corporate world.

When you’re choosing a Tricar building, you’re choosing luxury living. Every detail is considered. When you walk into The Renaissance you’ll feel the modern opulence in the beauty of their lobby, and each and every suite is crafted to marry convenience and sumptuous beauty.

The location and the building’s amenities make it the absolute perfect location for busy professionals as well as those with a healthy appetite for a social lifestyle. So take a look and see why people are flocking to choose these luxury high-rise buildings when they’re considering everything that London has to offer.

Amenities

Let’s just take a moment to be honest here, one of the best part about living in a building is the incredible amenities that they offer. Location might be important, but if you’re the kind of person who loves to entertain, you know that you’re going to want to find a location that has the kind of extra spaces that your guests will enjoy. So many buildings have put a lot of thought and consideration into the kind of lifestyles that the majority of their residents would have and try to make the kind of amenities that would suit those lifestyles. The Renaissance has done just that. Whether you’re a busy professional with very little time in your day to day, or you’re a social butterfly who loves having a healthy social life, or you’re just a homebody who loves never needing to leave home to find the comforts that you crave, then the Renaissance has the amenities for you! Take a look at everything they offer:

The Renaissance- Building Amenities

Fitness Room

For the busy individual who likes to live a healthy lifestyle, finding time to fit in going to the gym can be quite the conundrum. The Renaissance has the answer to that difficulty in life. They’ve build an incredibly fitness studio right into the building’s amenities. So whether you’re looking to lift some weights or jump on a machine to get some cardio into your day, you won’t have to leave the comfort of your home to do it. Of course, this means that you don’t have to factor in the commute time or think about how busy the gym might be at peak hours of the day.

Social Lounge

The resident lounge/social room is a key amenity for those who have a healthy social lifestyle. If you’re the kind of person who loves to meet new people and connect with your neighbors, the social room is a great way to do just that in a casual and comfortable setting. For those who love to entertain, you have a great space to take your guests outside of your apartment that can offer you the space, and the activities that can help you with hosting. The social space has comfortable chairs for those who want to sit and connect. It also has a pool table for those who enjoy a little friendly competition. There is also a theater room, with a big screen TV so that you can catch the big game or have an incredible movie experience. It’s also just a great space to come and unwind on a rainy or snowy day so that you can get out of your apartment and not feel cooped up, but not have to brave the elements.

Guest Suite

Entertaining is fun, but entertaining in an apartment can be less than ideal. Not having a guest room means that anyone staying over has to crash on the couch or the floor. That doesn’t have to be an issue in The Renaissance. They have a dedicated guest suite that can be rented for overnight guests. Your guests can stay over in the comfort and privacy of their own suite without inconveniencing you and still getting to have a comfortable sleep. Imagine how much friendlier they’ll be at brunch if they don’t have a kink in their neck from sleeping on a couch the whole night.

The Renaissance - Building amenities

Storage Locker

The truth of the matter is that most of the time we have more stuff than can fit into our apartments. Whether that is because we’re living with a roommate and don’t need two of everything, but also don’t want to get rid of one set because you’ll want it when you go separate ways on day in the far future, or it’s because we have seasonal items that we don’t want out all year round, we just need a space to keep things safe and secure until we need them again. The Renaissance has got you covered there as well. They have storage lockers available for residents to keep your belongings secured, but out of the way, which really beats having to pay for storage units somewhere else in the city, or keeping boxes in your parent’s basement.

Underground Parking

Parking might always be an issue downtown, but The Renaissance has got you covered there. They have secured underground parking, with a controlled entry. Underground parking is always amazing because you never have to worry about hurrying to scrape your car off in the dark mornings of winter as you try to not be late for work after a night of snow and ice. It also means that on days when it’s raining a lot, you won’t need to make a mad dash for your car in a busy parking lot, only to be soaking wet by the time you get in it.

Outdoor Terrace

For those who love to entertain, the classic summer bbq is an essential summer memory each year, but it can be difficult to host a summer bbq in an apartment. Once again, The Renaissance has thought of everything. They have a resident terrace that is complete with a bbq where residents can hang out and enjoy the warm weather or entertain guests and enjoy making those summer bbq memories. The resident terrace is also just a great place to soak up some sun and enjoy the outdoors without having to leave home. Yes, The Renaissance is just a hop, skip, and a jump away from some beautiful parks, but sometimes you want a little of the outdoors without needing to leave the comfort of your own home.

Security

Security is especially important in any kind of building, but it’s especially important when living downtown. The Renaissance comes with a video security system and controlled entry so that you can feel safe and secure.

Convenience

Time is a commodity that we simply do not have enough of. We’re all busy individuals with lots of to-dos and not a lot of hours to get those things done, so any kind of added convenience that saves time is a godsend. The Renaissance has some added conveniences for you right on the main level of the building. The first of these is a hair studio. Finding time to fit in a haircut can be difficult. Imagine never having to leave home to get it done? Well with The Renaissance, you can get your haircut right there on the main floor. It doesn’t get easier than that.

Running out to get small things like toilet paper or snacks can feel like a big task once you’re comfortable at home. Downtown Variety and Dry Cleaning is conveniently located on the main level of the building. It’s even open late for people who work late or have been out for a night on the town.

Love going out for grub but hate the idea of having to actually go out? At The Renaissance you can have the best of both worlds. Zen’Za is a pizza joint right there on the main floor of the building. You can grab hot and delicious pizza in the middle of winter without having to put on boots. Doesn’t that sound awesome?

Suite Features

They say that they devil is in the details, but with Tricar it’s more like the genius is in the details. Tricar never overlooks the little details that makes each and every suite convenient and luxurious so that residents can enjoy high-end living, no matter what suite you’re in. Each suite comes with these amazing features:

The Renaissance - Suite Features
