Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Sliding is the First Step

Spring snow is fun for skiers. Hidden Valley Highlands was busy all through the March Break with Ski School, skiers and boarders. Several of our guests took advantage of this while they were here.

For some others, however, they were content with very minor hills... Making their first steps on cross country skiis.

Jacob found that the snowbank behind the old barn provided the perfect amount of slope to help him find his balance and also work on his climbing skills. Brian's collection of hubcaps provided a most excellent backdrop to his exploits!

Emmy relied on Dad to keep her upright as she worked her way along the slight slope in front of her cottage.

It doesn't take long to figure out the balance, and we've certainly got no shortage of places to work on your technique! Some of the guests dispensed with the trails, and took advantage of the corn snow conditions in the back fields to simply make their own way -- that field has plenty of slopes throughout that keep it fun, while reducing the need to be able to steer!
