Would like to come to Barrie for cross-country skiing the week before or week after Jan. 1, 2012? What is the likelihood of snow for xc? Which is best area -- Hardwood Hills or Highlands Nordic?

Writing from the Barrie area, both XC networks should be open and active around Jan 1. If you will be staying in Barrie, Hardwood Hills is closer, but Highlands Nordic south of Collingwood the other direction from Barrie, is not much further. Both are excellent XC networks, but I would give the edge to Hardwood Hills, which has hosted international events.

There is a public park in mid - town Barrie called Sunnidale Park...........very large and lovely place....while it is not a XC facility per se, may people do XC ski there, and it's free!

Yes, Sunnidale Park is a great place in all seasons. If you just want a casual outing, at no cost, mostly on flat terrain in central Barrie, Sunnidale would be a good bet.
