Enjoy the Rest of Winter with Your Beachfront Community Home

The snow may still be falling and the ice may still be hard, but soon the winter will be over. Although every season has its benefits, you should take full advantage of the winter while it is still here.

Here are the top three winter-only sports you should do while you still can before relaxing in your beachfront community home.

Skiing in Horseshoe Valley

Most people who visit Horseshoe Valley to ski commute many hours by car to do so. This only reduces their skiing time, as they will have to leave early to get home again. However, if you are a skiing enthusiast and you cannot wait to ski every chance you get, you should consider living near Horseshoe Valley, especially in a place where you can enjoy so many more wintertime activities.

West Shore Beach Club’s homes and cottages are the perfect blend of country living with an urban lifestyle. Many local attractions, like the Horseshoe Resort in Horseshoe Valley are close nearby, allowing you to indulge in your passion for winter sports whenever you wish.

West Shore Beach Club has cottages and homes available for sale. Enjoy the outdoors more, before you retire to your slice of paradise on Lake Couchiching. Whether you like to hit the slopes every weekend, or simply want to relax while enjoying a picturesque view of the pristine, beautiful Muskoka region every night after a long day at work, there is something here for everyone at West Shore.

Ice Fishing on Lake Couchiching

Although you can fish anytime of the year, there is something special about ice fishing. Maybe it feels more rewarding because there is more work involved. Maybe the cool winter air is invigorating, as opposed to fishing in the summer humidity. Regardless of the reason, once the ice is no longer hard enough, you will not be able to ice fish until next winter. Some people cannot wait that long to enjoy their favourite sport.

If your idea of a fun Saturday is walking out on the ice, setting up an ice fishing hut, and baiting and catching fish through a hole in the ice, you should definitely consider living on the shores of Lake Couchiching in a beachfront community home. West Shore Beach Club has cottages and homes for sale that are perfect for individuals and their families who love the outdoors.


As an outdoor enthusiast, you have probably hiked many major trails in the Lake Couchiching area and possibly even throughout Muskoka. You may have even visited Algonquin Provincial Park! However, it is one thing to hike a trail in the warm summer, and another to snowshoe it during the winter.

Snowshoeing requires larger amounts of effort and stamina, due to the increased resistance you feel from the heavy snow and the cold, yet invigorating winter air. You may not be able to cover as much ground on snowshoes as you can while hiking, but you will still have a great time being challenged by the elements.

Live near the trails and enjoy this native activity commonly enjoyed by Native Canadians for generations. Whether you hike or snowshoe alone, or with partners and friends, you will love relaxing after a nice, long hike in your beachfront community home. Rediscover the natural beauty of the trails in winter, as only a local can, when you live in the heart of Muskoka on Lake Couchiching.
