Setting out on a trip to explore the Haliburton Highlands wouldn’t be complete without a day or two of downhill action at the public ski hill known province-wide for its cutting edge “people mover” technology – transporting winter enthusiasts to the top in style since 2009. The first of its kind in Canada, Sir Sam’s music filled, 1,100 foot long motorized moving tunnel carries guests to the peak of 12 groomed runs, set upon a mountain offering panoramic views over Eagle and Moose Lake.
Visitors return to Sir Sam’s not only for the signature Haliburton views, but also for its host of activities and services including a terrain park , rental and pro shops, a snow school, and a CADS program for disabled skiers.
Throughout the day, stop to relax by the fire and sip on homemade chilli and soups in the comfort of Sir Sam’s spacious Cafeteria Chalet, warm up with a hot beverage at the Coffee Hut, or wind down with some comfort food at Sammy’s Pub.
Get a feel for local history with a visit to Sir Sam’s Inn, the boutique resort with Water Spa that was once the Haliburton estate of Sir Samuel Hughes, the decorated government minister who led Canada’s Military through the first World War. Enjoy a peaceful winter view of Eagle Lake from your stone and timber mansion bedroom, or relax in the privacy of a quiet lakeside accommodation.
Complete your stay and recharge after a day on the slopes with Sir Sam’s Water Spa; start with a tour of the hydrotherapy circuit, then select one of many natural healing treatments.
