The province is once again offering FREE entry to provincial parks during the entire month of February. Manitobans are encouraged to take advantage of all the activities available in the great outdoors at provincial parks.

“We may not have had as much snow as we’re used to this winter but there are still plenty of reasons to get out and enjoy everything our parks have to offer,” Minister Mackintosh said. “We have groomed trails for snowmobiles, skijoring and cross-country skiing, as well as great places for hiking or snowshoeing.”

Highlight of events for the month of February include:

  • Cross-country ski clinic in the Spruce Woods Provincial Park on Saturday, Feb. 7
  • Learn to ice fish in the Spruce Woods Provincial Park on Saturday, Feb. 14
  • Winter safari special event in the Bird’s Hill Provincial Park on Sunday, Feb. 22
  • Guided ski in the Whiteshell Provincial Park on Saturday, Feb. 28

Hundreds of kilometres of snowmobiling, cross-country and skate skiing, snowshoeing and hiking trails are all groomed and maintained throughout the winter season. Pet owners can take advantage of trails for skijoring, kick sledding and dog sledding. SnoPasses are still required for snowmobilers using groomed trails in provincial parks.
