Calabogie Peaks is a ski resort in the municipality of Greater Madawaksa, Renfrew County in Eastern Ontario, Canada. It is located 80 kilometres (50 mi) west of Ottawa, and was founded in 1970 (1970).[2] Although the resort is named after the nearby community of Calabogie and Calabogie Lake, the mountain itself is actually called Dicksons Mountain.[1] Calabogie Peaks Resort offers the highest vertical drop among public ski hills in Ontario, 232 metres (761 ft). It features 29 runs, 3 lifts (2 Doppelmayr quad chairlifts and 1 carpet lift), a tubing hill[3] and four terrain parks.[4] In addition to the beginner hill, Calabogie offers the longest green trail in Ontario, as well as plenty of intermediate and expert runs.

The resort has accommodation at the Dickson Manor that includes a spa, indoor swimming pool, outdoor hot tub and fine dining restaurant. During the summer it also offers a beachfront, golf, mountain biking, and climbing.

Due to environmental concerns, campers are discouraged from using Styrofoam plates or cups. Reusable dishes are preferred, but paper plates and cups also acceptable.
