I've been coming to Mount Pakenham for six years, starting as a rank beginner and progressing every winter with the help of some excellent instructors. It's not the biggest hill, but the great snowmaking and meticulous grooming make the most of the terrain. The lodge...More

two families, rented skis for the day. Great fun, good snow conditions, a bit of powder on the edges. Not mountains but sufficient vertical drop. We had a fun day and lunch was good in the cafeteria. Pogos, grilled cheese, poutine, fries with gravy. ,
