Skiing at Osler Bluff
If you enjoy winter sports as part of your active lifestyle, then you’ll love life in Baybounds. Located in Meaford, Ontario, this new master-planned community of condos, two storey, freehold towns and low-rise luxury condominiums is only a 20-minute drive away from some of the best skiing in Ontario.
While many people flock to Collingwood’s Blue Mountain, other ski enthusiasts head to the historic Osler Bluff Ski Club. Founded after World War II, this private ski club is spread over 130 acres along the Niagara Escarpment with breathtaking views out to Georgian Bay.

With a vertical drop of 775 feet, Osler Bluff is one of the highest ski hills in Ontario. Know for having the best downhill course in the province, the club has been a fixture on the Alpine Ontario race schedule for more than forty years.
But you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy the thrill of some of the best terrain and snow conditions in the region. With 20 runs – many over one kilometre long – Osler Bluff has slopes for the beginner to the expert.
Everyday fun, minutes from your home in Meaford
If you are just starting out, there is no better place to learn how to downhill ski or snowboard. The club’s snow school is known as one of the best in Canada, offering lessons for preschoolers to seniors – and everyone in between.
Feel ready for some friendly competition? Osler Bluff offers racing for everyone from 7-year-old beginners to interclub team racing, individual provincial racing, or the ever-popular adult house league.
Want to enjoy a slower pace? Strap on your snowshoes or cross-country skis and explore almost 27 kilometres of trails that wind their way through some of the area’s most stunning scenery.
Georgian Bay is always in season
The fun doesn’t stop once ski season is over. During those gorgeous Georgian Bay summers, members of Osler Bluff can cool off in the club’s swimming pool or meet for a friendly tennis match. There’s even a playground for the kids.
