OUTDOOR WINTER ADVENTURE
Skiing and Snowboarding: Located in La Riviere, Holiday Mountain is a premier destination for skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts. For all ages and abilities, Holiday Mountain has lessons for individual or groups. In the chalet there is the option for both fine dining and fast food and a licensed lounge area to relax by the fireplace. Visit www.holidaymountain.com for more details and hours of operation. For other visitors, ice fishing is also a popular outdoor winter activity. Head to Mary Jane Reservoir for some fishing on a beautiful winter morning located just west of Manitou.
Fill up your stomach; before heading outside again take time to energize yourself! If you left the ski hills without eating head down PTH 3 for 5 minutes East to Manitou. Turn in to town on Main Street and find a few options to satisfy your cravings. TT’s Return is fully licensed and offers a large selection of home cooking. If you are not wanting a full meal try Manitou Bakery to satisfy your sweet tooth and warm up with a cup of coffee.
Lace up: After grabbing a bite stay in Manitou and enjoy some skating. Located beside Manitou Elementary School stay outdoors and skate on our outdoor rink which also has a warm up building. If a break from the brisk air is what you’re hoping for skate indoors at Manitou Community Arena. Check our website www.pembina.ca for public skating times. If downhill skiing is not for you, lace on a pair of cross country skis or snowshoes and find a spot in the beautiful Pembina Valley to get some exercise while taking in the scenic surroundings.
Evening – The Pembina Valley enjoys more than 500 km of maintained snowmobile trails throughout our region. The Pembina Valley Snowkickers Snowmobile Club can be contacted at www.pembinavalleysnowkickers.com for more information.
