4. Meltdown Pond Skim @ Snow Valley

Wrap up the ski/snowboard season with a splash! Sunday March 31st Snow Valley is hosting their March Meltdown Pond Skim. Participants will be challenged to complete their typical slope run with a stylish "skim" across an 80 ft pond at the bottom of the hill. Wacky costumes highly encouraged!

Registration will take place from 9 am-12 pm at the information desk and the pond skim will kick-off at 1 pm.

5. Sky Crystals Exhibit @ Simcoe County Museum

Don Komarechka's Sky Crystals Exhibit is at Simcoe County Museum until April 21st. Using a steady hand, an old mitten, and freshly falling snow Komarechka photographs snowflakes like you've never seen before. Many people have a hard time believing these photos are real... but you'll have to come see for yourself.

6. Caesar Sunday @ 1858 Caesar Bar

This is a must add to your weekend plans. It requires a little bit of a road trip but it is worth it! Head to Collingwood for the day and hit up 1858 Caesar Bar.

When it comes to caesars, if you can think it up... they can most likely make it. Customize any drink to your liking with all the delicious garnishes to go with it.
