Lake Horseshoe Opening This Summer
Horseshoe Resort is growing again, adding a 3-acre man-made lake at the base of the ski hill. Lake Horseshoe will feature a wakeboard cable park, world-class water ramp training and great swimming with inflatable obstacles. Horseshoe Resort has partnered with the Ontario Volleyball Association to add beach volleyball courts around the lake, which will host up to a world junior championship.
“Families and athletes will both enjoy the new attraction. Kids will enjoy the swimming and water activities and professional athletes can come and train for their different sports and disciplines,” says Horseshoe Resort’s General Manager, Jonathan Reid.
Lake Horseshoe will be beneficial to the resort all year round, adding 12 million gallons of water for snowmaking in the winter season. The additional water source will double the snowmaking capacity for the resort and is the first phase in a 5 million dollar snowmaking improvement plan. The resort plans to open the ski hill earlier and with more terrain open.
