Winter Wonderland Attractions & Entertainment

Didn’t you know? Hot chocolate tastes better after a rosy-cheek winter walk. See the pink-orange Chinook sunrise light up the morning frost. You’ll get why this place is special. • Pure glee: Tobogganing is a beloved Canadian pastime. Find any snowy hill, and ride down on a small sled. Again and again. It’s tons of fun, and not just for the kidlets. • Picture it: Freeze that winter wonderland by taking a winter photography class. A pro can show you how to capture the northern lights and mid-winter lake mist.
