Muskoka, ON (PRWEB) February 24, 2006
March Break at Deerhurst Resort could be called "maple syrup appreciation week" as this Muskoka resort pours on the fun to delight families looking for a getaway with a truly Canadian flavour. From March 10th to 19th, Deerhurst Resort's own Sugar Bush operation kicks into high gear, bringing old-fashioned sugar bush tours, pancake breakfasts, maple dinner specials, culinary demonstrations and even, just in case you've never seen one before, a pancake tree! (Think of flapjacks as ornaments and you get the picture.)
While the flavour of March Break at Deerhurst Resort is decidedly maple, it's the almost mind-boggling array of activities that make it one of Ontario's best bets to please everyone from little tykes to teenagers to parents looking for a few days of family bliss.
Downhill skiing and snowboarding are available right next door at Hidden Valley Highlands, where recent heavy snowfalls have brought ideal conditions this winter. Other options in the snow country smorgasbord of fun here include ice-sculptre demonstrations, dog-sledding, snowmobiling, sleigh rides, skating, cross-country skiing and tubing. (All outdoor activities are dependant on weather).
The great indoors beckons with teddy bear making, scrapbook starter sessions, a magic show , tennis clinics, dance classes or basketball, volleyball and floor hockey games. Even the nights come alive with EDGE, Deerhurst's latest version of it's famous stage show.
Deerhurst Resort's most popular package at March Break is undoubtedly the "Maple Syrup Escape" which bundles select accommodation with a family sugar bush tour and $40 in Deerhurst Fun Bucks for just $85 per adult per night, based on double occupancy and two-night stay .
The sugar bush tour offers a first-hand look at both old-fashioned and modern syrup making methods as well as the chance to make your own maple candy in the snow. This year, Deerhurst will tap approximately 1,000 trees on its property, which should yield up to 1,000 litres of syrup. With 40 litres of sap required to produce just one litre of syrup, it's easy to appreciate the value of this "liquid gold".
A complete calendar of March Break activities at Deerhurst Resort is available online at http://www.deerhurstresort.com/marchbreak. Even the resort's Aveda Spa gets into the spirit of the sugaring season with its Muskoka Maple Body Scrub, a moisturizing body scrub and bronzing application that brings back that summer glow to skin.
