Fall & Winter

Heat things up this season with these cold weather activities.

As summer slips into fall, the leaves turn golden yellow and bright orange. With cool nights and fewer people around, fall is a great time for day trips or multi-day outdoor adventures, like hiking, horseback riding and fishing.

And when the temperatures drop below zero, Manitoba shines under the bright winter sun. Cold temperatures, snow and frozen lakes make Manitoba an ideal spot for snowmobiling, skiing and ice fishing. Dress for the weather (average winter temperatures are -12°C), but be ready for fun.

We're Not All Flat

In winter, Manitoba’s South West region promises adventure for skiers and snowmobilers, while its valleys welcome wildlife on their migratory voyages.

We know winter and do it well, especially when it comes to ice fishing on our many frozen lakes. If there’s one thing our cold winters lend themselves to, it’s longer, abundant ice fishing seasons – even more so the further north you venture in Manitoba.

Ski Manitoba

There are more than 100 cross-country ski trails in Manitoba, many groomed by volunteers who just love the sport. Manitoba’s landscape sparkles in the winter thanks to a flattering blanket of white snow just waiting for skiers, beginner and expert alike.
