Saskatchewan Winter Adventures

Skate Across a Frozen Lake
There is nothing like the sound of skates cutting across the ice. It is a quintessential Canadian experience and our 100,000 lakes and rivers provide ample opportunities to try it.

Get Ready for a Loppet
Start practicing now and get primed to join the 2016 Don Allen Saskaloppet through Lac La Ronge Provincial Park in March.

Hit the Hard Water
Saskatchewan is known for monster fish and reeling them in through the ice adds to the excitement.

Head South to the Cypress Hills
The highest point in Canada between the Rockies and Quebec is a popular spot in the summer, but a dusting of snow transforms the area in the winter. It is a sight not to be missed.

Try Winter Camping
For experienced outdoors enthusiasts, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing through the wilderness for an overnight camping trip is sure to be a memorable experience.

Celebrate the Season at WinterShines
Take advantage of the cold weather. The River Landing and Riversdale neighbourhoods come alive in downtown Saskatoon for the winter festival held annually in January.

Ride the Trails on a Snowmobile
“Goin’ for a rip” is a popular winter pastime on the prairies and the groomed trails around the province show off the diversity of our landscape.

Learn to Mush
Mushing with a pack of dedicated sled dogs through the northern Saskatchewan forest is a great way to appreciate nature in all of its glory.
