Winter Adventure in Saskatchewan
This time of year brings plenty of snow to many parts of Canada, and in turn a winter playground awaits you. Tourism Saskatchewan have suggested several fun filled winter activities to make the most of a trip to this wonderful part of the world during the winter months.
Cross-country skiing is a great way to enjoy nature and stay fit. It is an activity for the whole family and it can be enjoyed wherever there is snow on the ground (although, groomed trails do make it easier).
Time to go for a rip, eh? Hop on a snowmobile and zip through the tranquil northern boreal forest, over hills in the Qu’Appelle Valley or through fields of soft powder. With 10,000 km of groomed snowmobile trails in the province, there is a place for everyone to explore.
Getting ready to hit the trail with a team of excited sled dogs is an amazing experience. Barking and jumping as the sled is prepared, their enthusiasm is infectious. Once they hear the command, “mush,” the noise turns into complete silence. Suddenly, these dogs are on a mission. Racing through the forest is what they live for, and you get to simply enjoy the ride. Take in the Mushers Rendezvous in Preeceville or the Canadian Challenge Sled Dog Race in Prince Albert to see the pros in action. Or try mushing for yourself with Sundogs Sled Excursions.
Hurry, hurry hard and join a curling team! This fun indoor activity is Saskatchewan’s provincial sport. It is almost a rite of passage for those who grow up in Saskatchewan. People take curling seriously and the competition can be fierce at any level – during recreational bonspiels, high school leagues and the race to the provincial championship.
Setting up your own fishing shack, drilling a hole through several feet of ice in the middle of a frozen lake or river, dropping a line into the water and waiting for a fish to bite – what’s not to love? Ice fishing is a big deal here, a winter pastime with true devotees.
