Saskatoon winters are cold, but definitely not boring!

Avenue Living wants to show you where to find all the fun close to your Saskatoon apartment!

The Nutrien WinterShines festival is on now until February 3rd. Head down to the Saskatoon Farmers' Market to join in on the fun. From January 29th to February 3rd, you can check out Igloo Fest, consisting of a large igloo filled with free crafts, games, and more. Or, visit the Snow Park, an outdoor adventure for kids of all ages with scavenger hunts, games, and other outdoor activities. The festival also hosts Paint Nites, a Soup Cook-off, and the GO-Gordie-GO Do-athlon winter challenges for adults and kids at the Gordie Howe Sports Complex.

Keep the kids outside having fun during the Winter Play Program! Drop in and play with snow baseball, snow painting, freeze tag, snow carving, and more! This free program runs every Saturday from February 9th to March 9th from 10:30am until 4pm at the Rec Units in Massey Place, Greystone Heights, Holliston, and Westmount.

Sledding and skating are wintertime staples, and in Saskatoon there are loads of great hills and rinks near our apartment buildings. One of the longest hills in the city is at Diefenbaker Park, just minutes from our residents living in Nutana Park and Eastview. Victoria Park in Riversdale also has multiple hills suitable for all ages. There are 50 outdoor skating rinks throughout Saskatoon, our favourites being Cameco Meewasin Rink and the Garden Park Rink next to Boffins Public House.

Snowshoeing is a great wintertime activity that anyone can do! This sport is low impact and easy to learn. Rent snow shoes from Eb's Source for Adventure on Saskatchewan Avenue, or buy them from any sports store in the city. The best places to snowshoe are city golf courses and large parks with unkept trails.

Whether you're looking for snow sports, crafts, or festivals, Saskatoon is the place to be this winter! Contact us today to tour any of our available suites throughout the city.
