The longest snow season belongs to northwestern Ontario. Skiing and snowshoeing can begin as early as November and almost always continue until mid-April, and at times into the first week of May. Northwestern Ontario is the area north of Lake Superior that extends to Lake of the Woods and the Manitoba border. Major cities include: Atikokan, Dryden, Fort Frances, Kenora, Marathon, Nipigon and Thunder Bay. Only a few trails have pierced this vast mysterious region of impenetrable rock, huge canyons and waterfalls, making it a prime location for daring adventurers.
