Starting the first weekend in January, visitors can come on out and enjoy some fresh air.
Lace-up your blades for a skate through Aspen campground along a 2 km winding trail then skate over to the fire to warm up.
While in the park, visitors can also check out the cross-country ski trails, rent a pair of snowshoes, try winter geo-caching and take part in the fun Photo Hop challenge. Winter-themed Park Activity Kits are also available for pick-up at the park. The entire Winter in the Valley experience allows families to stay safe while enjoying the fresh air.
The Yumm Truck will be operating Saturdays and Sundays, from January 9 to March 7, offering food services to park visitors.
Signage is in place throughout the parks to remind visitors of the safety protocols and restrictions. In addition to signage, Sask Parks staff will be implementing enhanced cleaning and sanitization procedures and minimizing in-park contact where possible. Visitors must maintain physical distance from others, adhere to the mandatory mask-use policy while indoors and to stay home if not feeling well.
