Starting today at 1:00 p.m. the Club will be closed for skiing until January 23rd in accordance with the province wide shutdown.  

For the safety and well-being of our Staff, our Administrative Offices and Lodges will be closed. Our Staff will be working remotely and can be reached via email. Click here for the Staff directory.

Our Snowmaking Team will continue to make snow at every opportunity during the shutdown so we are ready to hit the slopes at the end of January!  

While skiing might be on hold, we are excited to offer the Peaks community many of our favorite Winter activities.

HIKING:
The Peaks hiking trail will be open for Members.  Please stay on the designated hiking trail as our Snowmaking Team will continue to make snow. Once snowmaking starts on Freeloader, the hiking trail will close. Please stay tuned to our website and social media channels for updates.

TOBOGGANING:
Our Outside Operations Team will be setting up toboggan runs early next week. These runs will be unsupervised and require parental supervision for children. Bring your own toboggans!

ICE SKATING RINK:
Our ice rink is almost ready! We will be ‘flooding the ice’ early next week and anticipate being able to lace up our skates before the new year! Stay tuned for updates.

SKINNING:
Our Board and Management Team are working with the Grey Bruce Health Unit to understand what, if any, the options for skinning during the shutdown and we will update the Membership as soon as we have a plan.

FOOD & BEVERAGE:
Curbside pick-up and delivery will be available for homemade meals, apres packages, cocktails and groceries Wednesday through Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Online ordering will be done through our website and mobile app and must be done 3 hours in advance of pick-up. Have a certain craving? Reach out to our F&B Team with your menu requests to steve@georgianpeaks.com.

We are excited to offer these activities and keep our Membership engaged in winter! Remember to follow all COVID-19 protocols and maintain physical distancing of 2 metres from those outside your household while enjoying activities at the Club.

Be respectful of the property in the coming weeks and stay out of closed areas and off closed trails. Unfortunately, we have already seen a surge in vandalism after hours this season. Parental supervision is required at all times on property.  

At any time we may have heavy equipment, maintenance equipment, high voltage power lines, high pressure water & air and Maintenance Employees on the trails. Due to this hazardous environment, please stay off the ski trails, including Champlain. Please do not hike, toboggan or drive anywhere on the trails or along the bottom of the hills that are not designated for those activities. Members and Guests who ignore the closed or warning signs are creating an unsafe work environment for our Employees and will be charged with trespassing. 

We would also like to remind Members that all dogs must be on a leash when on Club property. Allowing your dog to run off-leash is dangerous to our Employees and your dog.
 
We look forward to safely 'opening our doors' again in January and wish you and your families a happy and healthy holiday season!
