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.

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.
