Dion Sugarbush Winery Snowshoe Race

 

 

Update (Jan 1/21): In light of the current lockdown in Ontario, we will not hold the Sugarbush race on Jan 23 as planned. We are looking at other options for race dates later in the winter if regulations and weather will allow. Please check back later for updates.

The Dion Brighton Snowshoe Race will be moving to Prince Edward County for 2021! We will hold the race at the beautiful Sugarbush Vineyard and Winery in Hillier.
