Welcome to AGRI-FOOD Ski Day

Mark your calendars because the Agri-food Ski Day is scheduled for Thursday, February 15 at the beautiful and private Osler Bluffs Ski Resort in Collingwood! This event marks the 23nd 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.

This year instead of the main lodge we will be back at Osler’s Orchard Lodge. Again, 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.

Please read below for a few things to expect on the day.
  • Outdoor seating will be available
  • Complimentary ski lesson available to new skiers and boarders (send an email to kelly.alves@ofa.on.ca if you wish to sign up)
  • More details on the Agri-Food Ski Day registration page

We are excited to see you all and hope you can join us for a fun-filled day of skiing, snowboarding and outdoor networking. You can Register today by clicking here.
If you have any questions, please contact Kelly Alves at kelly.alves@ofa.on.ca.

The event also supports Hamilton’s Ronald McDonald House Charity.  To date we have contributed over $34,000.00 dollars through 50/50 draws and silent auctions to Ronald McDonald House Charities. Please consider bringing a silent auction item to our event to support RMHC.

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.

This year we also have access to the Osler Bluff Terrain Park.* The terrain park has many features suitable for all levels. The 6.5 acre terrain park boasts a half-pipe and dozens of features including rails, boxes, jumps and hips. Talented and passionate staff create a unique park each year.

* Guests who want to enjoy the terrain park are required to complete the Terrain Park Test. The test can be completed online at the link here. You must provide and wear a certified helmet to be allowed entry into the park.
