Comfort Tips

The Ontario Snow Resorts Association has created a scale known as “Comfort Tips” that helps the public to determine how comfortable they can expect to be while participating in winter recreation activities.

Temperatures above -5°C:
  • Enjoy outdoor winter activities.
  • Consider wearing a hat and gloves.
Temperature -5°C to -20°C:
  • Enjoy outdoor winter activities.
  • Dress in layers.
  • Exposed skin will be cold: consider wearing a hat, scarf, gloves/mittens and a wind-resistant layer.
Temperature -20°C to -35°C:
  • Keep active while outdoors.
  • Dress in warm layers.
  • Limit amount of exposed skin.
  • Wear a hat, scarf, gloves/mittens and wind-resistant outer layer.
Temperature below -35°C:
  • Facilities may close at this temperature or below.
  • Minimize outdoor activity.
  • Wear all essential winter clothing and layers.
  • Cover all exposed skin.

There’s a new way to register for leisure programs or book a facility. It’s easy to create an account! If you need help getting started, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.



The French interface of our new registration system is still under development, however it is important that the City goes live with the new system as the existing registration and facility booking system is no longer supported by the vendor. Residents can still receive this service in French by calling 311 to have a French-speaking operator process bookings or registrations. The French interface will be launched in time for the fall/winter registration period.
