Fun Activities to Embrace this Winter
Don’t let the cold weather get you down – winter in Saskatchewan can be amazing! Keep reading for a list of some of our favourite winter activities.
It’s no secret that winter in Saskatchewan is very cold and can feel like it lasts for ages. Instead of dreading the cold weather, try embracing it and finding activities you love doing to keep you warm this year! With beautiful scenery, trails, rinks, and hills, there is no shortage of fun winter activities in Saskatchewan.
Snow Shoeing and Cross Country Skiing
Have you ever thought about trying snow shoeing but never got around to it? Getting outside in the snow is a great way to spend a winter day taking in the beautiful Saskatchewan landscapes. If you don’t have equipment to go snow shoeing or skiing, check out where you can rent these items. Many provincial parks offer daily equipment rentals.
Whether you are a seasoned pro or are just learning to skate, this activity is a staple in our Canadian winters! With skating rinks all over the province, make an effort to get out skating on a regular basis. If you’re keeping moving, your toes should stay toasty warm!
If you’re in Saskatoon and area, check out this list of places to go skating this winter. If you’re in Regina, check out this list of places you can go.
Sledding and Tobogganing
It’s officially time to bring out the toboggans and sleds and head to your local hill! One perk of the all this snow is that it makes for great sledding. If you’re looking to try something new, give Kick Sledding a try. Don’t forget to have the hot chocolate ready for when you come inside!
Hiking or a Winter Walk
Have you checked recently if your favourite trail is open (or at least cleared of snow) this time of year? Hiking in the winter can be hard work, but it’s a great way to get moving with minor equipment needed – just make sure you wear lots of layers and bring warm winter gear with you!
If you’re just looking for some fresh air, set time aside to go for a walk around your neighborhood or stay warm by grabbing a coffee from a local coffee shop and strolling around a new area.
Online Workout Classes
Sometimes getting outside is not an option. When it is just too cold, windy, or snowy to get outside, stay active with an at home workout! If you’re looking for some ideas, check out our blog post sharing 5 At Home Workouts to Try here.
