True, not huge but there are a few in the 2000ft range.Which makes them actual mountains instead of the hills we get in southern Ontario. This is a good source for anyone looking into that area. Lists access and trail/logging road info. http://www.ontariohighpoints.com/

That is a good site! Those 2100ft peaks refer to Elevation, if you notice their prominence (aka Vertical) it's much less. A few around 900-1300 ft but most much much smaller yet.
I'm sure there would be some decent shredding to be had though. 1000ft vert is enough for some good turns, and on a good year the snow in Northern Ontario can be fairly deep and always cold.
Maybe you should go check a few out...

Oh, I am aware it refers to total elevation.I used to live up there so I can say that yes they usually have a lot of good snow.It is a 12 hour drive for me now but next time I am up there in the winter I do plan to check some out.

hey dude i've driven from port huron (sarnia) to stowe and mt. snow which are a little further south of killington. i still think you'd want to drive thru NY tho because there aren't really any good highways in northern NY. hopefully you have awd or 4X4 cuz a lot of VT's state highways are really mountainous and they're pretty rough when its snowin.

Oh yea I'm not worried, got my baby with me! haha 03 f150 fx4 so not worried about traction or anything!

the route iw as going to take was just I 90..... my girlfriends family when they went down a couple years ago went what appears to be outta the way taking I88 and then coming back up....but I90 is pretty much a straight shot.

yea especially coming from sarnia! thats brutal! haha I know the drive should only tak an hour and a half from just north of london but takes closer to 2 and a half just because of the horrible road system!

thats why most of the time we just go to moonstone because its just off the 400.... plus i got family in Orillia so usually stop by there after a day and have a good dinner then either head home or stay the night!
