5 Activities to Look Forward to This Winter
By Zoe Verelli
We’ve officially received our first snow fall of the year in Montreal, so it’s safe to say winter is here.
We all know that the season of winter is about cuddling up with a blanket (or significant other), and sipping a cup o’ Joe, while your eyes fixate onto the television screen. I can’t deny how enticing that is, but this winter, I’ve got to mix it up a tad. It may be surprising to some, but there are actually so many fun winter activities that we can all participate in.
Now don’t worry, you don’t have to make any commitments right now but let’s at least take a look at the top 5 that eagerly await you:
- Ice Skating
There are so many outdoor skating rinks that you and your partner, family, or friends can visit. This activity is one that brings with it the spirit of the holiday season. It requires a great combination of physical activity, sociability, and fun.
The best part is that those who don’t know how to skate can learn, and those who can’t handle the cold for too long can visit an indoor skating rink. So accommodating!
- Cabane à Sucre
Who doesn’t love a good sugar shack? These establishments welcome individuals of all ages, and put together an itinerary of fun activities. Not only will you and your group experience a wonderful, heavy breakfast of eggs, bacon, pancakes, and authentic Canadian maple syrup, you will be taken on horse rides that go through the entire property and will bear witness to the process of turning sap into maple syrup.
This music festival takes place every winter in the old port of Montreal. This year, it is scheduled from the 12th of January to the 4th of February.
EDM lovers are brought together to one spot, where decorations are bright, speakers are loud, and people are happy. With all the dancing and the music, it’s no wonder that this event is one that thousands of individuals look forward to every year.
- The Nordic Terrace
This event takes place at the top of SAT’s Foodlab under a warmed up tent. Couches and tables are set up for guests, while special winter cocktails circulate, making their way around the venue. Guests are introduced to a wide range of foods and sensory experiences. It certainly sounds like fun!
- Montreal en Lumière
The 18th edition of this event takes place from February 23rd to March 11th. It brings along with it fun rides, special shows and concert, fine dining, nuit blanche, and illuminart, which is a “showcase for creators and their innovations.”
You can take a look at their website here and see for yourself how fun this winter can be!
So why not take some time to think about these great opportunities to have fun this winter? You won’t regret trying something new, trust us!
