Struggling to find just the right gift for someone you love? Santa knows that a trip to Sault Ste. Marie is a hit with both the guys and the gals. Let us show you how.

Lucky guys know that planning a surprise vacation to play in the snow will be a Christmas home run. Make all the arrangements and wrap the details up in a box with cute hats, mittens and other winter accessories she’ll love!

Or maybe a new pair of cross-country skis will find their way under the Christmas tree? With the beautifully groomed trails of Algonquin Ski Trails, enjoy the north woods together while getting some fresh air and exercise worthy of your New Year’s resolution!


Ladies can plan a winter escape, too. Maybe your guy is looking for a place to try out his new snowboard at Sault Seal Recreation Area?


You can also plan your winter escape around the granddaddy of all snowmobile races – the International 500 – held on the first Saturday in February. Enjoy your choice of outdoor activities during the same trip where you watch speed demons make a run for prize money and bragging rights.

Sault Ste. Marie isn’t just for couples. Families find plenty to do during a winter trip to Sault Ste. Marie, including tubing at Sault Seal Recreation Area, hockey action at LSSU, ice skating at local rinks, and just generally playing in the snow.

This year, make Santa proud and bypass the ugly ties, the ho-hum slippers and give the perfect gift – a winter getaway to Sault Ste. Marie! It’s the perfect start to your New Year!
