Ice Formations

Winter Beach

Venture along the world's longest freshwater beach and witness how our white sandy shores transform into dramatic ice sculpted landscapes during the winter season. While you're there, soak up the stunning backdrop of South Georgian Bay. Follow along the water's edge and front the brisk winds of Lake Huron or take shelter along Shore Lane Trail which follows the waterfront set-back amidst the trees.
Enjoy the ice formations from a distance and do not climb on them as they are not stable and actually sit on top of moving lake water. If you are not careful, these can be quite dangerous.


Wasaga Beach is a snowmobile hotspot during the winter season, with trails and pit stops to keep you busy! Wasaga is situated on the receiving end of the lake-effect snow that comes of Georgian Bay - and that means snow - lots of it! Along the local snowmobile routes you will find full-service accommodation, restaurants, repair stations and fueling stations.
