    Downhill skiing on the Island !

    by Canuck5 Written Nov 24, 2007

    It was quite a surprise for me to pass a downhill ski hill here on Prince Edward Island. I just had to stop and snap a pic !

    The Brookvale Alpine Winter Activity Park is located in the middle of Queens County, on PEI.

    For downhill skiing, it has a 250-foot drop, serviced by three lifts (chair lift, T-bar, and rope tow). It has 11 Alpine courses, 5 of which are rated Easy, 2 as Moderate, and 4 as Difficult.

    There are also trails and facilities for X-country skiing, tubing, snowshoeing, tobaggoning, instruction, etc.

    Festivals

    In summer, there are several festivals going on in Charlottetown.

    The Festival of Lights is the Canada Day celebration, and takes place on July 1 (Canada Day) and the days surrounding it. This is the biggest Canada Day celebration in Atlantic Canada. During this festival, there are bands, buskers, a carnival, and the Canada Day fireworks. It takes place at Peake's Quay.

    About a week later, there is the Jazz and Blues festival, which is smaller but is growing (it's a newer event). Part of Queen Street is closed off during that time because the festival tent is set up in the road, and many bands also play in restaurants and bars in other places (mostly on Victoria Row).

    The Charlottetown Festival goes on all summer, and includes shows like Anne of Green Gables and Canada Rocks.

    Old Home Week is in the middle of August, at the Charlottetown Driving Park. It's mostly about horse racing, but there is a carnival/midway and farm animal exhibits. At the end of the week, there is a parade going through town.

    The house (the white and green house above, not the barn) which Lucy Maud Montgomery based Anne of Green Gables on. You can walk down Lover's Lane, or take a walk through the Haunted Woods. As a suggestion, read Anne of Green Gables before you visit. Can't you just imagine Anne and Matthew in the carriage?

    Located walking distance from Green Gables this beach is beautiful. There are red rock cliffs, sand dunes and the softest sand and the warmest water.
