Comfort Tips

Canadians are weather watchers and they seldom make their decisions on outdoor activities without consulting a forecast. The public perception of outdoor winter recreation opportunities is governed by extensive media coverage of weather including wind chill. The use of weather forecasts has prompted the Ontario Snow Resorts Association to create a scale that will enable the public to accurately reflect the level of comfort they may expect while engaged in winter recreation.

This scale has been named Comfort Tips and specifically relates wind chill to a set of parameters the public can use to enable them to enjoy winter activities.
