THINGS TO DO:
Clutch the rope of your toboggan as you race down the hill with the icy wind in your face. Trees fly past in a blur as you swerve to avoid the jump looming ahead. Too late - you shut your eyes and take off into the snowy unknown.
Albertans spend half the year in the snow and they embrace it to the fullest. But it’s not just about skiing and boarding. There are other sports that share the winter spotlight. Ever see 440 people playing in a single game of pond hockey? It’s the world’s largest, in our Peace region. Find out why ice sailors love the Ghost River Reservoir. For a total thrill in the ‘trending now’ department, combine dog sledding with cross country skiing and experience skijoring.
For some, the preferred winter activity is watching the snow fall – through the window, in front of a crackling fire with a hot beverage. Any way you play it, winter is wondrous in Alberta.
