Joanne's Message

DISCOVER the magic of WINTER!

Ski Areas provide many acres of wide-open natural space for exercise and physical activity, allowing you to enjoy the mental and physical health benefits of outdoor recreation while maintaining physical distancing. We have implemented some changes and precautions to put the health and safety of our guests, staff and community first.

Mount Pakenham is Eastern Ontario's premier family ski, board and snowshoeing area. We have three of the newest lifts in the region and we're just a short drive from Ottawa, Arnprior, Almonte and Renfrew.

New to skiing? Learning couldn't be easier with our all-inclusive Discover Package (includes group lesson instruction, equipment, helmet and a lift ticket for a great rate), and many Private Lesson options.

The "winter spirit" isn't just for skiers and snowboarders - we also offer snowshoeing to get you outside and active!

We have a GREAT Skiing in Schools program - daytime or evenings! Teachers/Home-Schooling Parents can find out more by clicking here.

I'll see you on the slopes!
