Winter Road Trip 2011

Saskatchewan is a four-season destination without a doubt. Our four distinct seasons create different vacation options all year long. Of course, with winter comes snow and all the fun activities that go with it, so last month we sent our travel correspondent Becky out on the road again to show you winter in Saskatchewan first hand.

From January 2-5, 2011, Becky headed to northern Saskatchewan to stay at the one and only Elk Ridge Resort.  Elk Ridge Resort, located one hour north of Prince Albert, just outside Prince Albert National Park and Waskesiu Lake, is a four-star resort located in the heart of the boreal forest. 

Elk Ridge Resort is well-known as a four-season destination that boasts amazing golf, nearby pristine lakes and hundreds of kilometres of trails for both summer and winter activities. It is also home to the Salacia Spa, which offers many luxurious and unique spa treatments, as well as first class dining experiences at the Copper Ridge Dining Room, the Ridge Lounge and Walleye’s restaurant.

While there, Becky took in as many activities in and around Elk Ridge Resort as she could, and shared her experiences with Tourism Saskatchewan’s social media followers. One of the highlights of her trip was the day she spent at Sundogs Sled Excursions. She learned the basics of dog sledding, and experienced the ride of a lifetime. 

The entire trip was documented in photos, videos and posts to Tourism Saskatchewan’s Facebook page, Twitter account, YouTube channel and Picasa album.
