Skiing near Sudbury?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
What skiing is there (please give vertical drop) within about 100 miles of Sudbury (don't want to drive much more than an hour). Just wondering.

Could we have a state or country name to go with the municipality?

(BTW, I hear there's awesome skiing near Portland.)

Searchmont near the Soo is your best bet by far. It rivals the vert of the big resorts down in Collingwood, but gets nowhere near the traffic and gets more lake effect snow.

A further drive than Laurentian in North Bay, but worth the extra effort.

Google puts Searchmont at 11 hrs 15 minutes as opposed to Blue Mountain's 3 hrs 41 minutes. Even if I can somehow avoid speed traps and cut that time in half, it's still a bit far for a day trip.

I thought you were in Sudbury?

I likely will be.

I just checked Google maps again. Google Maps puts the trip from Sudbury Ontario to Collingwood Ontario at 3 hours 41 minutes. Sudbury Ontario to Searchmont Ontario is 4 hours 43 minutes.

That's much better! I don't know how I got 11 hours last time. I could probably cut that down to 3 and a half hours without even trying.

Thanks.

Hehehehe, no problem.

I thought you were quoting travel times from Toronto or something. Even though it is a bit further, I would choose Searchmont to avoid the crowds. You don't get the village vibe that you do at Blue, but the skiing is arguably better. (and cheaper)
