Snowshoe kawartha

We are the sanctioning body for the annual Snowshoe Kawartha event which occurs on the first Saturday of February each year. The purpose of this event is to increase participation in outdoor activities during the winter months in the Kawartha Lakes region. Snowshoe Kawartha is the proud host of the 2020 Snowshoe Canada Ontario Provincial Championships for the second year in a row.

This a positive reflection on the excellent work that has been done by the organizing committee.
