Ski tickets around Toronto: do they know it’s recession?

First, skiing around Toronto is a joke for anyone who used to live  in a mountain region, as I did. These slopes can barely be called hills, but that’s OK if what you’re looking for is a few hours of family-time outdoors.

What’s not OK is the pricing.

No sign of recession in the price of the ski tickets around Toronto. Listed below are the prices for an adult at a few ski slopes we’re visiting every winter. If you live in Toronto, these are one-day trips.
