Edelweiss is my usual choice for local Ottawa skiing. It has a great selection of runs for almost every type of skier. Line-ups can be a little long on the weekends but the snow base and conditions usually make it worth the extra few minutes

Lift tickets are quite affordable and if you visit their booth at the Ottawa Ski Show you can usually snag a few 2-for-1 passes. Not a bad deal at all.

And with Auto-Route 5 extended almost all the way to Wakefield the drive is pretty quick and easy.
