Winter Activities in and around the Humber Valley Resort

Winter sports are a great attraction, with the best skiing in eastern Canada only minutes away. Humber Valley Resort also has direct access to over 1,200k (745 miles) of groomed snowmobile trails that stretch from ocean to mountainside. The area boasts the kind of abundant natural snowfall every dedicated skier and snowboarder dreams of nearly 5m (16 feet) every year. This provides a deep snow base laid out on a spectacular terrain just waiting to be explored by the adventurous.

The main winter sports opportunities at Humber Valley Resort are outlined below. The Resort’s dedicated Activity Centre can advise on these activities as well as arrange equipment and expert guides.

Only ten minutes drive from Humber Valley Resort, Marble Mountain offers a vertical drop of 519m (1,700 feet) and the best skiing east of the Canadian Rockies according to many knowledgeable skiiers. With over 175 acres of skiable terrain and 35 groomed trails of varying degrees of difficulty from Beginner to Expert, including a Terrain Park, half-pipe and seven mogul runs, Marble Mountain caters for all levels of skier and snowboarder. The fact that it is still relatively unknown ensures maximum time on the slopes rather than waiting in lift queues.

Group and individual ski lessons are available from the Marble Mountain Ski School, which offers on-snow programmes for children aged three and above. All participants are encouraged to try skiing with specially trained instructors, and children can also spend time in the supervised children’s centre, which is filled with educational toys and activities to keep them entertained. Parents can ski the day away knowing that their children are having a wonderful time as well.

The on-site rental shop stocks over 700 rental skis, snowboards and snow blades. Other amenities include a restaurant, bar and lounge area.
