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.

It's Canada. What would we talk about if we didn't talk about the weather?

We have guests here this week, who came to ski.  They arrived Monday. The trails were in decent shape following a huge fall of snow, but Brian had simply not had enough time to both groom and track set, so some of the trails were a little heavy going.  That didn't deter any of them.

By Tuesday, everything was groomed, track set, good to go. So were our guests, who enjoyed a full day out there.  As the mercury slowly rose.  It was postively balmly, but the rain held off.

Until the middle of the night, when the rains came. Monsoon-like, complete with thunder and lightning and things that you don't normally see here at the end of January. Like fog lifting off the lake. The lake, by the way, is all watered up, and when it freezes may provide the best of skating conditions!

And freeze it will. The forecast is for a 16 degree temperature drop. Really???? Who thought that was a good idea?  It has been a roller coaster for the poor mercury in the thermometer! While we personally think that a rainy day in January is just wrong, we can deal with one day. Not two, so weatherman take note.

There is snow in the forecast, along with that sudden temperature plunge, so be of good cheer... winter still lives in North Muskoka!
