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.

Rinky Dink! It's A-Maze-ing!

The weather turned cold, and the snow is returning, but not before creating the most incredible skating rink. We succumbed to the siren call of being able to go anywhere on the bay, gliding and sliding.

Safety on ice is always paramount, so
Dave and Megan scooped up the ice auger and headed out across the bay, to check out how much ice we had. (Lots -- it's safe for them to bring forth the Wall-Eye Fish Consortium Hut, Mark I, that they have been designing over the holiday... so stand by)

The ice surface, under that tiny skiff of snow, is superb. Who could resist coming out to play?

Not Brian, who showed up to 'play', demonstrating his ability to spin and slide...

Not David, who couldn't resist grabbing the back of the sled for a little boost across the bay.

We cleared off the rink -- which saw a lot of action this evening under the lights from some of our neighbours. But we couldn't stop there. Dave and Meg cleared a Pie, where they could chase each other in a great game of "Fox and Goose".

Nancy created a spiral maze. When Justine was visiting today with her Mom, that was her favourite.

Nor could Brian resist the conditions that produced such a solid base on the ski trails, with just enough snow to take his sled anywhere. He took it to the top of the Lookout -- which is usually impossible in deep snow.

That's the thing -- there is always something wonderful to do outside up here come winter. You just have to be ready to roll with it (or slide with it?)
