Winter Blues got you down?

There's a chill in the air during our Northern winters, but we definitely know how to stay warm. If adventure is what you're seeking, how about skiing down an actual mountain? Searchmont Ski Resort offers the real deal; with a 700-ft vertical and up to 21 runs to choose from, this is a mountain with personality. Enjoy a hot, savoury meal and your choice of alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages as the lodge itself welcomes you with open arms. Don't want to pack your equipment? That's OK, they've got you covered, offering full equipment rentals right on site. Looking for more skiing adventures? Visit the Sault Tourism ski page!

If soft adventure is more your style, bundle up and enjoy a peaceful sleigh ride through one of our serene forests, followed by a warm fire and steaming hot cup of coca at legendary Farmer Bob’s

Spring is in the air! 

The fresh scent of blooming flowers, and the fast-paced flow of the St. Marys rapids, will  make you want to jump into the new season with both feet. Located in the heart of the Great Lakes, where Lake Superior flows into Lake Huron, we pride ourselves in offering some of the best fishing around. Quoted by Ernest Hemingway as being a top fishing destination for Rainbow Trout in the world. Wade, cast or troll with one of the best Northern guides in the region and contact John Giuliani at John Giuliani's Fishing Adventures . Within walking distance from the cities downtown core, experience iconic Canadian fishing in our famous St. Marys River rapids. Get hooked on fishing this spring in #TheSoo!
