Mosaic Ontario's Wickedly Wonderful Winter Weekend 2019!

American Mosaic Friends, we'd love to have you join us. We recognize that the possibility of a winter storm makes you hesitate. So here's our offer: if there is a winter storm, such that you are not comfortable making the trip, Mosaic Ontario will REFUND YOUR DEPOSIT AND PAYMENT IN FULL. We will WAIVE THE CANELLATION FEE for our American visitors in the event of a winter storm. That's how much we'd like to have you with us. We offer a night hike each night - on the lake if the ice is thick enough (you have got to see the stars from a frozen lake in winter). We hike, cross-country ski, snowshoe, play broomball, board games, snow games, do yoga, dance, watch movies, eat, relax, sing, chat, make Shabbat and Havdallah, play games and board games, watch movies, campfire...some or all of these and there could be more...some activities are weather dependent. Regardless of weather, we have a blast! Amazing deal for a great weekend. All prices in Canadian dollars. $210 pp (3 or 4/room). $235 pp (2/room). $290 (a room to oneself in Lakeview).
