Bundle Up for These Outdoor Weekend Activities

Bundle Up for These Outdoor Weekend Activities

The colder temperatures arrived earlier this week after a long period of slushy conditions, but at least no one is still complaining that you can’t keep your car clean. The temps will be in the high minus teens most of the weekend, but with mainly sunshine. Here are just a few things you can do for fun. But remember, bring some extra layers if you decide to do outdoor yoga. Yes, outdoor yoga in the forest. Sounds awesome.

  • Lace up your skates for a game of shinny at The Forks beginning tonight until Sunday.  Hockey tournaments will take place on the Historic Port river rink from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. tonight, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. To register a team, call Gary at 999-7957 or e-mail gdepape@gmail.com. Unlike last weekend, the temperatures will be crisp, so bundle up. Also at The Forks, artists and architects are working on five amazing warming huts to be placed on the Assiniboine River trail next week.
  • If hockey isn’t your thing, Stony Mountain Ski Area is open today for what they call a ‘bonus day,’ from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and for night skiing from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Regular weekend hours apply Saturday and Sunday, as the resort is reporting 75 cm of groomed snow.
  • FortWhyte Alive will host an outdoor nature yoga session Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. A guided walk will take you along the lake to the secluded Siobhan Richardson Field Station where participants will set down their mats. You can pre-register by calling 989-8355.
