What could be better than Snow School? How about Winter Ski and Snowboard Camp! You can do it all at Brimacombe – and as the website says, it’s “Worth the Drive.” 

“We’ve got something for everyone. From beginner terrain to black diamonds to terrain parks, you’ll find it all here. Snow covered runs, the sounds of laughter and the thrill of experiencing nature in all its beauty.“  (https://brimacombe.ca/)

The history of Brimacombe goes back to the 1930’s. The group officially offered memberships at the Brimacombe site in 1954. A family membership was $10; and lifetime memberships were offered for $100 each. A $300 loan was arranged to finance the construction of the first tow. And it was a good one! The first rope tow was built using an old car. The tires were removed from the rims, and a system of wooden posts and wheel rims was used to drive and guide a large rope up the hill.

Rest assured things have changed dramatically! Today, Brimacombe can transport thousands of skiers uphill each hour using 4 quad chairlifts, 3 -bars and a Magic Carpet.

What Can We Do This Winter in the Kawarthas – Part 2!

 Mark your calendars for February 20 – 21 and

February 27 – 28th

Enjoy the excitement of the Amsoil Kawartha Cup Snowcross Races Feb 20th and 21st

The Canadian Snowcross Racing Association (CSRA) is the governing body that organizes, promotes and regulates snowmobile competitions in Canada – primarily in Ontario and Quebec. And the races are coming to the Lindsay Exhibition Fairgrounds Feb 20-21!

Professional snowmobile racing is a rapidly expanding sport and Snowcross is the most popular form of snowmobile racing. Snowcross offers high flying aerial displays on a compact track. Competitors race around tracks featuring tight turns, banked corners, and a variety of jumps allowing racers to catch what is referred to as “big air” in full view of lucky spectators.

Between 10 and 12 events are held each season from October through to April. The series attracts thousands of spectators, some who travel from one competition to the next.

If you have not been involved in snowmobiling before, and especially racing, you might be surprised to learn that the youngest competitors are as young as 4-6 years old! They are restricted to a speed limit of 12 mph.

The Brimacombe websites assures their visitors that they “do not support Winter Blues, February Blahs and/or Cabin Fever!” And that is good to know! Where January was featured as “Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month”, the end of February will be a weekend long celebration on the slopes – perfect for the whole family.
