Snow sailing, snowboarding, snowshoeing make for winter fun


  1. On Wednesday, CBC Sudbury told you about some neighbourly folks in North Bay who've been building and sharing a giant backyard luge for about 15 years now. It spans five properties, and it seems to bring the whole neighbourhood together. If you missed the story and video, check it out below:
  2. ...But, recreational backyard luging is just the tip of the fun iceberg. There's a lot happening this winter in Northern Ontario!
  3. As many in the region already know, if you fill jugs of equal size with sand or some other dense material, you can skip the fancy curling rocks and still have yourselves a DIY curling match on the lake. They're doing it from Sudbury to Dryden!

  11. These guys might be a bit young to remember Ross Rebagliati's gold medal win for Canada in the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. But, Rebagliati is credited by many with putting snowboarding on the map for Canadians . The sport is now commonplace at hills around the northeast, like these ones in North Bay and Sault Ste. Marie.

  21. ...And finally, perhaps the most quintessentially "northern experience" (at least in popular lore): dogsledding. Here's a video of a fellow in Moosonee who bailed off of a dog sled a few years back.
