And if you're a fan of outdoor skating, like a whole lot of us are, then have I got some awesome news for you.

Gage Park (45 Main St S, Brampton, ON), in Brampton, Ontario - about a 5 hour drive out of Montreal - is seriously beautiful during the winter time, and happens to turn a whole path of the park into the most fun skating rink you've ever been to:
