As part of my time share I went on to stay there for two nights from December 13 to 15, Friday to Sunday. I had invited a close friend and his family to accompany us to the resort. Our plan was to drive there after work on Friday and check in. Check out time was Sunday 11 AM.
Friday was a relatively nice day with some forecast for light snow later in the evening. To ensure that we didn’t get stuck into annoyingly heavy traffic on highway 401 and 400 we started late, around 8 PM. The weather remained pretty good with practically no snowfall. On the highway to our satisfaction we saw very light traffic all the way to our destination. It was about 200 kilometers from our location. Hwy 400 took us to Barrie from where we took 26 W to reach the resort on Jozo Weider Blvd.
Later that afternoon we went to the Aquatic plunge. This was one of the main attraction for us as we were not into skiing.
The plunge was a blast. Initially as we entered in the facility the shallow but spacious indoor swimming pools looked nice but not worth the price that we paid for it. The water was also a little cold than what we had expected.
However, our perception of it completely changed as soon as we found out that the indoor pool was connected with the outdoor pool and the swimmers were allowed to go there either through a channel that connected the two pools or just walk out and jump in. It takes no telling that the outdoor pool was adequately heated. This was a great experience as the outdoor temperature was pretty low. As we swam outside the water in our exposed hair kept on getting frozen. The kids had a blast. There were also a specious hot tub with steamy water. We had a great time there submerged in the hot water as the snow covered pine trees stood nearby.
