DISCOVER the magic of WINTER!

Mount Pakenham is Eastern Ontario's premier family ski, board and tubing 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 instruction, equipment, helmet and a lift ticket for a great rate of $60+tax.)

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

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

I'll see you on the slopes!
