Thanks GaRuss & Mountainman. Manitoba, Colorado & Utah are on our list. We just decided last week to do Colorado in Nov/Dec 2008 (I'd better go and book that now).
I do have Utah in a Nov/Dec slot but it's a few years down the road if I remember correctly.
We do a Canadian Province every third year and this year is Ontario (Nov/Dec) Manitoba will be the next privince we visit.
Like other Torontonians, I just can't imagine someone from such nice warm place will want to come here to spend our grey, cold Winter!!! You truly don't know what it means by Winter blues until you have lived here for a while and go through a few Winters.
But, if you are coming to Ontario this year, our nice little new Intrawest Village in Blue Mountain is not bad. Not too far from Collingwood, some new decent restaurants in the village, plenty of Winter sports around, but do make sure you are coming NOT earlier than late December.
Other areas that are nice if you like "relaxing" in the Winter (now, that is an oxymoron), Deerhurst resort in Huntsville is always nice. Not a great area for downhill skiing, but great for snowmobiling and country skiing. The resort has decent restaurant on site, great Sunday brunch, and some really good little restaurants nearby like 3 Guys and A Stove.
If you want high end, there is Taboo in Muskoka, and a couple of other new ones. I am not sure if they are in the regular timeshare exchange system, I seem to recall they are in a separate collection of timeshares. Again, this area has great relaxing Winter sports (no downhill skiing) and nice little restaurants.
And when you are bored, drive down 2 hours and visit us in the centre of universe
In Toronto, you will find very diverse selection of ethnic restaurants, Italian, Indian, Greek, Korean, and "THE" largest Chinatown in North America, with what is generally consider the BEST Chinese food found outside China.
Also here in Toronto, there is always some sort of Winter Festival going on. In the past few years we had Winterlicious when you can sample the top restaurants in Toronto with a very reasonable price. We have Broadway style shows, newly remodelled ROM, night clubs, funky street shopping areas. So, although not a small town, different areas of downtown Toronto have preserved their own flavors so you can experience each area as if it is a small town.
That's why we think we are in the centre of Universe, it is almost perfect except our gloomy Winter!!!
