Welcome to AGRI-FOOD Ski Day

As a result of the “stay-at- home” announcement made by Premier Doug Ford, we regret to inform you that we will be cancelling our Agri-Food Ski Day this year. We are staying optimistic that we will be able to hold our event again next year, and hope you will be able to join us on Thursday, February 17, 2022.

Join us for Ontario’s Premier Agriculture and Food Industry Ski Day at Osler Bluff Ski Club, Collingwood’s finest private ski hill. This event marks the 21st year of bringing together our diverse sector, celebrating our industry and providing an unique opportunity to strengthen the bonds with your customers, colleagues, suppliers, friends and family.

We will be in Osler’s main club house which has been recently renovated to include a huge stone fireplace, floor to ceiling views of the hill and Georgian Bay.  Also, this year we are excited to be partnering with the University of Guelph, Canada’s premier agriculture and food university, Ontario Agriculture College (OAC) Alumni Association who will be promoting this event to OAC alumni and students.

The event also supports Hamilton’s Ronald McDonald House Charity.  To date we have contributed over $30,000.00 dollars through 50/50 draws and silent auctions to Ronald McDonald House Charities.

The skiing and boarding at Osler is second to none in Ontario.  Highest elevation on the escarpment, professionally groomed trails, no lineups, high speed chair lifts, and unparalleled views of Georgian Bay. We also have a fun ski race. Back by popular demand there will be a snow shoeing excursion.  These expeditions will cover the fabulous Bruce trail terrain along the Niagara escarpment and Osler Bluff’s ski hill.
