Ontario’s cultural hotspot doesn’t get enough snow to be a cross-country skiing and snowshoeing mecca, but there are several areas in the region that have a reputation for decent trails when snow cover is good, and others that benefit from sheltered locations that hold the snow well. The Greater Toronto chapter includes Aurora, Bolton, Bradford, Brampton, Brantford, Cambridge, Oshawa, Port Hope, Pickering, Markham, Milton, Mississauga, Newmarket, and the city of Toronto. Lake Ontario, the Niagara Escarpment and the Oak Ridges Moraine are the most important physical features in the region.
