Brookvale Winter Activity Park - Prince Edward Island, Canada Hot

BrookvalePrince Edward Island in the Canadian Maritimes often suffers from being the forgotten about province when thinking of our neighbors to the North, but the Brookvale Winter Activity Park in Queens County has all the offerings to provide great snow memories.

The Provincial Government, which operates Brookvale, thoughtfully considered every interest when developing the resort and its status as a state run recreation area lends to extremely affordable prices.

Besides the ten alpine runs that service skiers and snowboarders alike, Nordic and cross-country buffs are afforded 24.5 km of groomed recreational trails and 7.5 km of competitive trails at the Brookvale Nordic Touring Center to fulfill their needs.

Those looking for adventure and fun not involving skis or a board can saunter around Brookvale’s 2 km snowshoe trek, which management keeps specially groomed for the activity. Or, park-goers can enjoy the adrenaline rush that comes from sledding down the 250-foot sliding hill located in the park’s Nordic area.

Other amenities include the Brown’s Volkswagen Ski School, offering complete instruction and the Brookvale Ski Buddy Program with accommodations for every type of adaptive and disabled skiing opportunity.

As mentioned above, the price tag for each of these activities is unparalleled; skiing and snowboarding fees range from $15 for students to $22 for adults for a full day on the mountain. Additionally, rental costs are $18-$22 for a full day. Nordic skiers pay $7-$9 for their passes and $11-$13 for equipment, if needed. Lastly, the sliding hill is free to use and just $5 for the tube rental.
