Kick the winter blues
SAFELY ENJOY THE GREAT MANITOBA OUTDOORS THIS WINTER
January and February can be long, cold months. The holidays are behind us and we’re inevitably starting to dream about the warmer weather to come. Rather than letting the cold bring us down, let’s kick the winter blues to the curb and take advantage of what Manitoba has to offer!
There are so many winter activities to enjoy throughout Manitoba. Here are a few of our favourites:
HIT THE SLOPES
Whether you’re an avid snowboarder or skier or are looking for a new winter activity to try, a trip to the slopes could be the perfect weekend getaway for you and your family.
Asessippi is the biggest ski hill in Manitoba. They have a lot of options when it comes to accommodation, as well as a variety of runs available to suit your skill level. The tubing park and terrain park can also make for a fun-filled day!
Nestled in the woods along Falcon Lake, Falcon Ridge is a ski resort that offers 12 runs, a tube run with a lift, and 30 kilometres of Nordic ski trails that are free for anyone to use. You can also visit SpringHill Winter Sports Park, Ski Valley, and many others throughout our province.
GO ICE FISHING
A Manitoba staple, ice fishing is another fun activity to do with friends and family. Our abundance of lakes and rivers makes it an accessible activity no matter where you’re located. Thanks to our long winter season, you’ll have ample opportunity to catch some fish. Just be sure to get your fishing license before heading out on the ice!
LACE UP YOUR SKATES
There are lots of skating trails and rinks throughout Manitoba. A classic for Winnipeggers is the Nestaweya River Trail at the Forks which offers skating under the canopy, winding trails throughout the grounds, and skate rentals if you’re new to the activity! The Flats in Neepawa and the Victoria Park Skating Path in Souris are also great options outside of Manitoba’s capital.
