Full review

Growing up in the racing circuit I have travelled throughout Ontario and Quebec and I can vouch that Loch Lomond has some of the best terrain East of the Rocky Mountains. Some may attempt to compare it to highly developed resorts such as Blue Mountain or Mont Tremblant, but that wouldnt be fair. It may not have the acrage as these resorts but for what is has it is a very diverse, challenging yet a friendly mountain. From the steeps of the Devils Dive, the moguls of the Jolly Giant and the continuos grade of the Giant the North facing slopes offer challenge and fun. The south facing slopes offer sun all day long with more intermediate runs. The terrain park is looking better than ever with well over a dozen jibs and multiples table tops and jumps. The snow making crew did an acceptional job this year especially considering the poor weather they had to work with at the begining of the season. The weather is hit or miss but this is out of our control. The bar in the chalet is warming and is always filled with social and open skiers and boarders who are all there to have a good time. I would recommend Loch Lomond to anyone living in Thunder Bay or just passing through.
