Like most of you, we’re totally over winter. It’s cold and dry… but there’s no sense in dwelling on it. Instead, we’re going to make the most of whatever is left in the season by bundling up and hitting the snow! From skating rinks to festivals, towns and cities all over Alberta have been doing the absolute most in an effort to make getting outside incredibly fun and easy – just check out Sylvan Lake!

As part of this year’s big Winterfest, the town will debut several glowing ice slides, a snow maze and have put together a beautiful display of twinkling lights – all of which are totally free to check out.
