Tourism Thunder Bay Winter - deeply connected to now

 Wintertime in Thunder Bay: take time to both pause and reflect, but also connect to ourselves, others, nature, and more importantly - NOW!

When the snow begins to fall, the fun is just beginning. Put on a few extra layers and head out for an adventure.


Home to two downhill ski areas and hundreds of kilometres of groomed cross-country trails, the skiing in Thunder Bay is world-class. Skiers of all abilities will find terrain they will love.

Fat biking

Gaining a reputation as a top destination for Fat Biking adventures, riders will find great riding on local trails and mountain bike parks.

Epic adventures

For a truly Canadian winter adventure, mush your own sled dog team, try ice climbing or winter camping.

Power sports

If power sports are more your style, check out Ice Racing, where speed meets ice - cars and motorcycles race on a track ploughed on the surface of a frozen lake.


The birthplace of more professional players per capita than anywhere else, Thunder Bay knows hockey. Catch a game at the Fort William Gardens - both the Lakehead Thunderwolves and the Thunder Bay North Stars call the Gardens home.


Watch some of the area's most talented curlers play while you enjoy delicious Chinese food at a local curling club.

It might be cold but it sure is fun!
