Teal’s Tango opened in the 2019/2020 Season, and has since become one of
our most popluar trails.
Highland’s favourite fur baby, Teal, has always loved getting out to ski and
we wanted to create an opportunity for other dogs and their owners
to have the same experience.
A dog friendly ski trail is not something you see very often in Ontario
– but we had the space and the vision so we gave it a try!
Teal’s Tango has since become a hot spot, not just for dog owners and their pups.
Families, beginners, people practicing, warming up or cooling down
have all spent time on the trail. It has truly become a trail for everyone.
To complete the vision we need trees! We hope to plant 10,000 trees to protect
the trail from wind and help preserve snow. But we can’t do it alone.
Would you like to help?
Plant your legacy by donating a tree to Teal’s Tango.
A contribution of $150 covers a 4ft tree, delivery and planting

Trails are in excellent shape. We have some wind today so you may find some drifts in our usual spots. Back Red, some of Woolner, and Teals Tango may be drifty. See you on the trails!
We have been doing some snowshoe trail maintenance this week. We havent had a chance to get to the Narnia trail yet. You are welcome to snowshoe it if you are familiar with that trail, but it hasn’t had a big check like the others have. We will be getting to the rest of that trail this week.
Fat Biking is OPEN. Trails are hard packed underneath, with some snow on top. As we get more snow the trail will get more challenging.
We have another round of Strike Day Camp (ages 4 to 11) on February 21.
See below for all kinds of fun things happening at Highlands!

For many years we have not had trail maps to hand out, trying to keep it green. While our network has lots of trail signage & maps, we have now gone one step further. Our trail map is now available on Avenza Maps. Download the app to know where you are at all times!
We would like to introduce a dog friendly ski trail! We have a flat 3km loop out in the front field, called Teal’s Tango. All are welcome on this trail. It will be especially great for beginners. We have planted seedlings this past spring with the hope of transplanting them to this trail when they are big and strong. We are looking forward to this location being a great spot to get your dog out on the trails and for an easier learning location for new skiers!
A few rules to live by on Teal’s Tango.
- Dogs must be on leashes
- No dogs in the building please
- Pick up what your dogs leaves behind
These simple rules will help make the trail a success.
