The Overview

Winter is back and the snow storms are in the cycle. We will get snow late today and well into tomorrow. The radars say there is a 24 hour break before the next front rolls in from the West. So it will be a snowy week. The temps look moderate over the next 2 weeks so it should be comfortable shovelling!

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -7C(FL -14C) and it will stay at -4C (FL -6C) in the afternoon and then rise to -3C (FL -8C) overnight. Still in the snow zone.

The winds are from the NW at about 15kph gradually losing speed until around 4PM when they swing to the SE which is our warning of the snow front approaching. Monday they will move to the NW and increase in speed as the snow front delivers on Muskoka.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:55AM, Sunset – 4:49PM. The day is lengthening by seconds daily – we have gained 65 seconds of daylight since Winter Solstice. The sun starts setting later – by 4 seconds every day on average. The sun will rise about the same time. Around Jan 8th, the rate of change will increase and the sun will rise earlier, and set later through til June. Yay!

Road Report

The Muskoka plows are resting until later today when a major snow front will cruise in from the NW. Meanwhile, the plows are out in Southern Ontario due to another snow storm coming down GBay and into Lakes Erie and Ontario. They might get to rest for 24 hours on Tuesday.

School Bus Status

School bus report – enjoy your last day of the Christmas break educators, students and bus drivers! Who knows – it could be a snow day tomorrow!

Course Update

Golf is alive in Hawaii where the pros are dealing with the winds – like you do when you play Muskoka Highlands. While we are closed for the next 95 days. But why wait for Spring. The hi-def indoor simulator is operating and ready fore you and your foursome. Keep the banter going all winter. Now is the time to start getting the swing in shape fore opening day, or before you might be headed South fore a golf trip. Call the clubhouse 7056461060 to book your time.

The next few days will bring the snow cover back up to regular depths and this will provide the protection from the cold temps we will start to experience.

A Special Day In A Wonderful Setting

Weddings are a special day for many people involved. Here at Muskoka Highlands, we reduce that stress with attention to every detail.
But our distinguishing feature is our setting – both inside and out. The clubhouse is designed to hold about 85 guests and the picture shows how this can happen. For larger parties, we engage a tent professional to create a unique setting outside.
