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.

Learning Curves

We teach a lot of guests how to waterski, as well as taking out those who are already quite proficient.

It starts on the dock, with Brian taking the guest through a 'dryland' simulation of what is going to happen, and what they need to do to help the process.

Water is a wonderful thing -- but waterskiers soon learn that if they stand up too early, the boat will take the "above water" part of their anatomy forward very fast.  It takes some strength, and a willingness to try, but given those ingredients, our success rate is very very high.

Matthew and Harriet, and their Dad Dave  (demonstrating beautiful technique as he drops the rope to land) all enjoyed a day of skiing last week.

Thanks Leslie for providing me with these pictures!
