We had an amazing winter at Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh & Muskoka Lakes Winery!
Snowshoe Trails Opened before Christmas
This year, we made some changes to our grooming. In addition to a snowmobile and drag, we added a Tucker Sno-cat. That allowed us to create 1-2 people wide, winding tracks, and 4-6 people wide tracks that were easier for socializing and walking dogs. Since all the trails link into one, large trail, the adventurous can experience everything! We also added more snowshoes to our rental fleet and a season’s trail pass!
Blondilocks also dropped by for a visit; it was a busy winter!
Ice Trail Opened in January!
This year, we added skate rentals and skate sharpening!
Even the local news station came to check out the Trail.
Then, we discovered our Ice Trail had made Get Out There’s list of 10 Must Skate Canadian Rinks!
Curling for Canada 150
But that’s not all! We even did some curling! As part of Canada’s 150 celebration, the Bala Curling Club demonstrated curling on a frozen cranberry bed. It doesn’t get much more Canadian than that!
Wine & Goodies
Of course, throughout the winter, we served hot mulled wine, hot cider, coffee, cookies, chili, soup and other goodies!
And we discovered what happens to cranberries in winter on our daily Bog to Bottle Tour.
March Break Fireworks!
By March Break, our Ice Trail and Snowshoe Trails were still open, so we celebrated with sparklers, coloured lights and fireworks under a full moon!
It was a lot of work, but well worth it. We can’t wait for next winter!
