They plow regularly but it can come down pretty hard especially if it is lake effect off GB between Barrie and Huntsville. Roads further north can remain snow covered longer due to cold temps and salt not working as well or at all. A plus is less traffic which I always prefer. If you get behind plows sit back and relax as they often block both lanes and go for quite a distance.
As others have said snow tires and lots of windshield washer fluid, lower the frezzing temp the better.
Tight lines

I have had some scary times on my way to Lake Nip,

Get behind a snow plow if you can, give way to the flying snow,
Plow will make your journey a safe one because he is in radio
contact with the weather conditions from dispatch.
Carry the usual emergency kit with you just in case.
Good luck and have a great time enjoying this wonderful
thing called ICE FISHING that some folks just dont understand.)))

If Mother Nature hates you as much as she hates me, you're doomed.

IF you can rely on the forecasts, Sunday doesn't look so bad for the northern section of the drive at all..

Most of the heavier snowfall is further south 401 403 407 and the 400.

I always relax more when I get past Barrie due to less volume.

As mentioned , just take your time and play safe

Maybe this will help. The complete saying is . . . .
"Keep the shiny side up and the rubber side down".
