March Break is already here. But don’t worry, you can still choose among programs at the local library, swimming pool, ice rink, ski hill or a large selection of creative classes for all ages.

Local Library

Take for instance the Bethany Library at 1474 Highway 7A.

On Saturday you can take part in the Super Saturday Board Games event at the Bethany Library from 11:15 to 12:15.

No matter where you live in Kawartha Lakes, there is a something going on at your local library. Check out the list of March Break events at http://www.city.kawarthalakes.on.ca/news/march-break-activities-in-kawartha-lakes.

If you have not been to your local library lately, you might be surprised at the wide range of offerings available! For instance, while your kids are busy you can borrow the books that have made it to the CBC Canada Reads Short List. The next edition of Canada Reads takes place March 27 to 30, 2017.

You or your kids might also be interested in downloading e-books, digital music, magazines…or you can take online courses for FREE! March Break might be just the time to see what the library is offering all year long.

Devil’s Elbow Ski Area

The Kawartha Ski and Snowboard School can get you started no matter what your age or skiing/snowboarding level.

The staff are certified by the Canadian Ski Instructors’ Alliance and can provide the right instruction no matter what level you are at: a newbie, an intermediate skier, or an experienced skier who has reached a plateau. Too shy for the small group lessons? Then consider a few private lessons to get your started.

Check out the website to get all of the details on programs starting at Kinder Ski to learning to ski in a weekend. There are also ski camps for every special holiday – all the way to March Break and Easter.

Some people prefer snowboarding. But don’t be fooled into thinking it is so simple you can do without a lesson or two. A qualified snowboard instructor will teach you to ride safely without the trial and error of trying to learn on your own. Learn to snowboard in a group, at a camp, on the weekend, or with a private lesson.


Registration is easy and you can do it all online at the school’s website at http://www.ksnowschool.com/register/. The Registration Wizard shows you all of the available programs and corresponding time slots, based on the age of the student.

Skiing and snowboarding depend on a critical element – SNOW! So check out the website and stay in touch with the school to ensure you don’t miss any of the fun.

Kawartha Ski and Snowboard School is located at Devil’s Elbow Ski and Snowboard Area

Devil’s Elbow, 878 Bethany Hills Road, Bethany, ON(705) 277-1533
