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.

We are often asked what the road conditions are -- and while we can tell you what's happening HERE, we can't speak for south of us, where winds off the toe of the Great Lakes can cause havoc with blowing snow conditions.   Used to be you could pick up the phone and there was someone from the MTO with a message to keep you up-dated. Not so much, now, although you CAN try calling 511.

A better bet is the Interactive Map  on the website.  Be sure to go to the left column, and under the heading 'Select Information to Display' choose both the "incidents and closures" tab AND the "road conditions" tab. 

Then scroll and zoom until you find the roads you're looking for.   And remember -- Slow Down and drive the conditions. Don't try to drive what the ads said the vehicle COULD do. And keep in mind that 4 wheel drive may help to get you OUT of a ditch, but it sure won't keep you out of one in the first place.

Also, if you live in Canada, you should have Winter Tires.  After all, it isn't All Seasons out there Sunshine. It's WINTER!


  1. I think you're preaching to the choir, Nancy! The drivers who scoot past our place are nuts.
    The poor deer! Great photo! Did you see my video of them in our backyard, slipping on the ice! The poor creatures.

  2. I hadn't known of that website feature. Very handy.
