Just kidding, this is Kitzbuehl!

Kamiskotia Ski Resort at night

You’d think that in a place like northern Ontario, where winter is not in short supply, that a “snow resort” wouldn’t have much pull with the locals.

Well, Kamiskotia Snow Resort puts my theory to rest – the ski club being a big draw in the area from December through to March with downhill, cross-country, snowboarding, tubing, etc.  Anything you can think of to do with snow, well, someone in northern Ontario has made a business out of it.  I think that Kamiskotia has the only skiing in northeastern Ontario, or at least north of Kirkland Lake.

Kidding!!!  That’s Kitzbuehl. This is Kamiskotia.

Normally I wouldn’t include a resort on the website but on the map I was working from whilst I stayed in Timmins, Kamiskotia had it’s own dot, just as Connaught or Hoyle.  That might be because the Kamiskotia area is also home to a small cottage community, whose cottages line the shores of Kamiskotia Lake.  Hunting, snowmobiling, hiking and ice fishing are available out this way, as is an outfitters.
