Do lots of hiking. If you have hiking/walking poles use them as it will get your body prepared for the motion of classic skiing. As long as there is no snow on the ground, Monora Park is the best place to start hiking. There are also many hiking opportunities on local trails. Maps to other trails in the area can be found at www.headwaterscommunities.org
We recommended a couple local business that supply many of our members with quality ski equipment and good service: Highlands Nordic in Duntroon (south of Collingwood) www.highlandsnordic.ca.
Mono Nordic Ski Club maintains two dog walking trails during the winter ski season. The dog walking trails are at the south end, off the lower parking lot, just east of the Operations building and at the west end of the upper parking lot. (See trail maps.) Walking, hiking, and dogs are not permitted on the ski trails as they cause damage to the trail surface. Please enjoy walking your dog on all trails in the park once the ski season is over.

Please join us for our Social Ski program. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoon at 1:30 PM casual skiers come together to ski the trails. Skiers of all abilities are welcome – participants ski in groups or individually.
By joining the group folks usually meet skiers of similar abilities. Also, many members have met ski partners through volunteer work in the Club.
Skiers are required to carry proof of paid membership or daily trail pass when they are using the trails. In this way we are assured that those using the trails are paid members/visitors and therefore covered by our club insurance policy.
