Ontario

Looks like I'll be heading there in December, just wondering where the best hills to ride are? the best parks etc? Where the biggest party scene is at, and also if there's many riders from this part of town?

Cheers In Advance

But you are talking as if Ontario were a small place. Best party scene. . .etc..
Its pretty huge. Larger than a lot of countries outside North America.

Where specifically are you going in Ontario and maybe we can help you out more.

Not much in Southern Ontario resort-wise. It's pretty flat.

There's some local hills, but nothing I've tried. Not to be offensive to my Toronto-based brethren, but when I'm looking for places to go boarding, Southern Ontario isn't on my list. And when I'm going to TO, I don't think of bringing my board.

How far do you want to drive?

man, honestly, there's a good party scene all over ontario. You want a good big one, hit up either downtown toronto or a bigger university campus. Ontario is huge and there's pretty big cities all throughout. If you're going to Toronto, Blue Mountain or Mount St. Louis Moonstone are you best spots for "local" riding. Dagmar has an alright park, but its a pretty small place

hey!!! i live in ontario

i usually go to Mount Tremblant every year, fairly nice resort. I wouldnt say the park is bad, but it's also not spectacular. It has nice runs imo, fairly long (varies from 10-30mins long), some tree runs, nice lifts , but it can get deadly cold

If you're looking to hit some clubs in Toronto, Richmond Street between John and University has tons. For some dinner and your older bar crowd, King Street between John and University will give you a large variety. If your looking to hang with the university type crowd, check out The Annex (around Bloor and Bathurst) or the Spadina/St George and Bloor area. For some higher end bars, Yorkville is where you want to be.

The best hill in Ontario would be Blue Mountain. However, in comparison to places such as Whistler, Banff and Mont Tremblant, Blue Mountain is tiny.

If you clarify where you're going to be in Ontario, I can help you out a little more.
