Winter Activities 

Experience the great outdoors this winter in Elora and Fergus. Whether you want to pluck a pike out of a lake, ski through the forest on a snowy day, skate like a pro or blaze a trail, we're living proof fun can be had whatever the weather!

Cross Country Skiing

The Elora Gorge Conservation Area  and Belwood Lake Conservation Area feature a network of cross-country and snowshoe trails along with winter hiking.

Ice Fishing

Belwood Lake is excellent for perch and northern pike. Check the Grand River Conservation Authority's Newsroom for winter conditions updates.


The Fergus Elora Belwood Snowmobile Club maintains 150 km of trails that form the 494 km trail network of the South Grey Area. Enjoy lunch, shelter and great company at their heated clubhouse.


Enjoy the great winter site at Wellington County Museum and Archives. Explore the museum grounds and trails by snowshoe - bring your own or rent onsite. It's the perfect winter outdoor activity for the whole family.


When the winter winds come, we don't stay inside, we build outdoor skating rinks! Join us at Bissell Park located at 127 East Mill Street, Elora or at Wellington County Museum and Archives and skate in the fresh, crisp winter air.
