OUTDOORS TIME: Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are no longer your only options. You can also take a bike on the snowy trails. Hardwood Bike and Ski north of Barrie offers Fat Biking (mountain bike with big fat tires) from Monday to Friday. The colder the conditions, the easier it is to pedal and the faster you will go. Have a look:
And if sitting is more your outdoors style, there are ice fishing huts for rent on Lake Simcoe. (For the fair-weather fishermen in your family, the Spring Fishing and Boating Show is on this weekend and has lots for the indoor anglers).
