Family Ski Getaway at Mount Pakenham


Families with downhill enthusiasts of all levels will love Mount Pakenham for its programs catering to parent, tot and teen. Escape the busy craze of your usual ski hill and head to the Ottawa Valley for a winter family getaway that’s affordable and new.

Parents will love the family and youth oriented programs available, such as ‘Parent and Tot’, ‘Holiday Day Camp’ , ‘Clifford Racing Program’ , ‘Youth Freestyle Ski & Snowboard’  and ‘Discover Ski & Snowboard’ . Spirits will flourish in the wintry outdoors as families learn together, then share some laughs over snacks at the Lounge Cafeteria.

A full season of scheduled snowboarding terrain park competitions, plus a new winter tubing slope with spectator area and campfire circle, will keep you and your family busy all vacation long.

A much too short, one hour long family bonding road trip away from Ottawa, Mount Pakenham is nestled between the charming towns of Almonte  and Arnprior  where all varieties of lodging can be found. For fast access to the hill the next morning, and a true log cabin chalet experience, head to Carnarvic Lodge . Here you’ll find woodland views, traditional wood stove heating and even a grand piano to help the family wind down amidst a perfect wintry night.
