3 Ways to Get Outside in Saskatoon This Winter

While it’s tempting to stay in and hide as soon as the snow hits the ground, Saskatoon has a lot of fun to offer. Take advantage of those warm winter days by getting outside and exploring the nature in your back yard!

Snowshoe at Cranberry Flats

Cranberry Flats Conservation Area is only a few minutes out of the city and perfect for summer and winter walks. There are plenty of little trails that take you to a small lookout platform, through the brush, and down to the rivers edge. If you don’t have a set of snowshoes, rent them from Eb’s Adventure or Escape Sports for about $15/$20 for the day. Dogs are welcome on leash here!

Cross Country Ski at Meewasin

Glide along the snow with a beautiful view of the river at the Lower Meewasin Park ski trail at Pinehouse and Whiteswan Drive. There are plenty of amazing trails worth checking out in Saskatoon, but this one will give you an exceptional view of the city skyline if you go in the evening. If you don’t have cross country skis, rent some from Eb’s for $20/day.

Visit the Birds at Beaver Creek

The Beaver Creek Conservation area is the perfect place to go if you want to feel like a Disney princess for a couple hours, and it’s only about 13km out of the city. Stop in at the interpretive centre for a little cup of birdseed and then head out on a walk to find some friendly chickadees and a perfect photo opportunity. Plan your visit for a weekday as the area is closed on weekends.
