I thought I'd share photos after the first snowfall at Doug's home/studio in Orillia, which is 80 miles north of Toronto. The 4" accumulation - Sunday morning, November 22 - was beautiful, but it made driving around the city a challenge for those without snow tires or 4-wheel drive.
Local resorts like Horseshoe Valley - with 29 runs and over 45km of groomed cross country ski trails - now had a good base to "make" snow and open the slopes for skiing and snowboarding.
Main entrance (on left)/third floor is Doug's studio.
Photo was taken from Doug's back yard looking out over Lake Couchiching.
