It's time to hit the slopes...
  
Parks and Recreation - One of the unique advantages of living and
working in Toronto is the uncommon privilege of having downhill skiing and
snowboarding facilities right at your door. The City of Toronto operates two
ski centres that offer a range of programs to suit all ages and abilities. Even
with no snow on the ground in Toronto, the ski hills are up and running with
their snowmaking equipment.

Centennial Park Ski Hill and North York Ski Centre offer beginner, intermediate
and advanced Alpine and Snowboarding lessons for ages six to adult. Beginner
and Intermediate parent and tot programs are also offered.

Toronto residents and visitors can also enjoy the fun of skiing or snowboarding
by buying lift tickets by the hour. Both centres are open Monday to Friday, 10
a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Sunday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Centennial Park Ski Hill, located at Renforth Road and Rathburn Drive, has a
T-bar and a poma lift. North York Ski Centre, located in Earl Bales Park, at
Sheppard Avenue West and Bathurst Street, has a double-chair lift and rope tow.
Both hills are accessible by public transit, and offer full equipment rental.
