It’s no secret that we are passionate about spending time with our family outdoors! It was, after all, what inspired us to create Polar Skis. One of our favorite activities to do as a family is to use our Polar Skis to explore some of the beautiful trails Edmonton has to offer. With all the snow outside right now, Polar Skis and Snowshoes are a must! Here are some of our favorite areas to go snowshoeing as a family.
Located in the northeast of Edmonton on the north bank of the river, Rundle Park has different activities for a full day of exploring! You might be familiar with the sports trails in the summer, but did you know there are toboggan hills and even an Iceway in the winter? Strap on your Polar Skis, grab your snowshoes and check it all out.
Elk Island National Park
Only 35 minutes east of Edmonton, Elk Island National Park is a calm oasis away from the city. It is an essential refuge for bison, elk and more than 250 species of birds, so you can spend the day roaming the trails and keeping an eye out for wildlife.
Mill Woods Park
This large sports park is multi-recreational and located just to the west of Mill Woods Town Centre, in the heart of Mill Woods, Edmonton. Spend the day perusing the trails and exploring the many recreational opportunities the park has to offer!
Strathcona Recreation Area
If you’re a resident of Sherwood Park - you are probably already familiar with Strathcona Recreation Area! It features multiple snowshoeing trails, and there are even rentals available if you don’t have your own. Perfect for beginner snowshoes and trailblazers alike.
Don’t forget to check the trail conditions and reports before you head out. Remember to follow all provincial guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and maintain a physical distance of 6 feet from anyone outside your household.
Have fun, be safe and tag us on your favorite trails wearing your Polar Skis!
